Auditor General on Relocation Services

  • AG video summary“In this audit, we examined how the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canadian Armed Forces have managed selected requirements of the government’s 2009 contract for integrated relocation services. Expenditures under this contract exceeded $300 million in 2012-2013 …. The Canadian Armed Forces has also taken steps to improve the management of the 2009 relocation services contract, but we noted weaknesses in the way it verifies relocation transactions. The Canadian Forces should improve their processes to ensure that members consistently receive relocation benefits that meet the requirements of the Financial Administration Act.”“Audit at a Glance:  Providing Relocation Services”Full report
  • “Auditor general’s fall 2014 report: Military relocation contract needs monitoring — The RCMP gets a passing grade from the auditor general for the way it handles its multimillion-dollar relocation program, but National Defence is once again facing tough questions about how it moves members around the country ….”

Ukraine

  • Analysis  “Canada to Russia: Get Out of Ukraine — Canada Prime Minister Stephen Harper sent a clear message to Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit: Get out of Ukraine ….”
  • Commentary  “A little sympathy for Gorbachev — In the wake of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, spare a thought for Mikhail Gorbachev.  The 83-year-old last Soviet leader has been harshly criticized for his recent remarks in Berlin.
