OCG Key Initiatives

The Office of the Comptroller General (OCG) works to advance the principles of modern comptrollership throughout the federal government. Through the greater professionalization of the function and the broadening of mandates, comptrollership is now part of all aspects of public sector management. It is recognized as the key to stewardship of all resources both financial and non-financial.

In addition to actively supporting the President of the Treasury Board in delivering on his mandate letter commitments, the OCG has designated a number of initiatives as being key to furthering the government’s comptrollership function for the coming years.  They include:

  • The continued advancement of the Treasury Board Policy Reset Initiative through a new Policy on the Planning and Management of Investments and new directives on the management of Projects and Programmes, Real Property, Materiel and Contracting as well as a renewed Transfer Payment Policy;
  • The development, in close collaboration with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, of a new Treasury Board directive for procurement in the Nunavut Land Claim Area;
  • The implementation of a project management strategy to strengthen the Government of Canada’s capacity to manage and deliver projects successfully;
  • Together with Public Services and Procurement Canada, the provision of support for the modernization of the procurement function for the Government of Canada;
  • The implementation of policy and guidance associated with the Service Fees Act (which came into effect June 2017);
  • The advancement of the Horizontal Fixed Asset Review to improve the management of federal fixed assets in order to generate greater value from the Government of Canada’s real property portfolio;
  • The renewal of the Federal Contaminated Sites Program post 2020;
  • The development and implementation of a renewed value proposition for internal audit in the Government of Canada;
  • The continued increase of diversity on Departmental Audit Committees in an effort to align with labour market availability rates for under-represented groups;
  • The continued advancement of the SAP digital core configuration of the Government of Canada Financial and Materiel Management (GCFM) solution;
  • The ongoing support and participation in efforts to stabilize the Phoenix pay system;
  • The preparation and tabling of the Public Accounts, including providing guidance on complex accounting issues for the Government of Canada; and
  • The continued growth of efforts to better develop and support healthy, vibrant and skilled comptrollership communities.
