OPERATING IN A COST CONTAINMENT ENVIRONMENT: HOW THRIVING ORGANIZATIONS LEVERAGE THEIR COLLECTIVE EXPERTISE

Thursday, May 21, 2015

Using limited public resources efficiently and effectively is everybody's business. As Accounting Officers, Deputy Heads rely on the advice and recommendations of many departmental experts to fulfil their role. This professional development day is being held three years after the introduction of the Deficit Reduction Action Plans that brought cost containment forward as a new approach of Government Operations. Departments are pursuing business efficiencies not seen previously that requires the leveraging of collective expertise from within and across organizations. The growing push for enterprise solutions, with direction from the Centre, to manage government operations further reinforces the need for increased partnership and collaboration efforts to ensure alignment between emerging risks and proper controls.  Financial Management Transformation initiatives, while taxing an enterprise's internal control management framework due to rapid decision-making, are developing an emerging internal expertise that is found within relatively unknown places. This professional development day will feature departments and functional communities engaged in achieving results effectively without compromising stewardship of taxpayers' money. They will share innovative ways to provide guidance, assess controls against core reporting activities and undertake assurance work in a cost efficient way through sound resource allocation. Join us on this day as we highlight GOC wide direction that is in its early stages of implementation and showcase innovative initiatives. Discover what this means for your future career path.

In this Professional Development Day, an annual event, we will examine the roles and responsibilities of departments, the Prime Minister's office / Privy Council Office, Department of Finance and the Treasury Board Secretariat.  The day will focus on developing the government's agenda through the Speech from the Throne and the Federal Budget and on translating government priorities into action through Memoranda to Cabinet and Treasury Board submissions. Another important aspect of the machinery of government is effective reporting to Parliamentary committees. The day will end with a discussion on the role of the Deputy Minister as Accounting Officer, and the evolving role of the Chief Financial Officer.  This day will of special interest to all new FI's, those who need to increase their understanding of interactions between departments and central agencies.  Participants will learn the key steps in the financial process, from funding initiation to public reporting, the financial roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of key stakeholders in the government's departments and agencies.
