TREASURY BOARD OF CANADA POLICY ON RESULTS - A RESULTS AND DELIVERY CULTURE

Plenary Hall 301

B PAGANSpeaker:
Brian Pagan, Assistant Secretary, Expenditure Management Sector, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

Developing an evidence base for policy and emphasizing program results, measuring performance and communicating to Canadians in a compelling and clear manner, has been identified as a priority of the new Government. The new TB Policy on Results requires departments to implement a simplified Departmental Results Framework based on clear, comprehensible core responsibilities (i.e. what they do) and related results (i.e. what they aim to achieve) along with appropriate indicators and measures. This new framework will help simplify the program results that departments deliver and clarify the high-level result expectations of the Government.

Paul Thoppil, CPA, CA, Chief Financial Officer, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada

The Prime Minister has stated that there is no more important relationship than the one with Indigenous Peoples.  Budget 2016 provided historic investments to support this relationship with Indigenous peoples totalling more than $8.4B over 5 years. This unprecedented influx of funds to INAC presents a number of financial management challenges in terms of financial planning, resource allocation, and financial stewardship. Paul Thoppil, INAC's Chief Financial Officer, will explain how the department is responding to these challenges and advancing the cause of reconciliation between Canada and its Indigenous Peoples.

DIGITAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Plenary Hall 301

Panel -graphic2

Speakers:
Tom Cross, Solution Principal, SAP Canada;
Michael Mitchell, Director, Advisory Services, KPMG LLP;
Drew Shantz, KPMG LLP

Managing government resources today - people, assets and budget - across siloed data sources can create unnecessary challenges and inefficiencies. A modern approach to public sector resource analysis and management requires combining content from different areas of the organization to provide timely and comprehensive insight. This presentation will discuss how governments can do more with less. By creating a single source for information with real-time reporting and without data duplication, managers and leaders are allowed to:

  • answer ad-hoc questions on-the-fly to provide comprehensive insight into the organization;
  • analyze root causes to identify risks and opportunities in real-time; and,
  • simulate impact of potential decisions to financials and operations.
