Audit of grants and contributions recipient information: Em20-57/2017E-PDF

"The Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) 2016 to 2017 Report on Plans and Priorities presents $1.7 billion of planned expenditures on voted Grants and Contributions (Gs and Cs) programs. Payments made to Gs and Cs recipients represent a significant commitment of ESDC's resources and affect the everyday lives of Canadians. Gs and Cs recipients are organizations and individuals that have been approved to receive payments as a result of their participation in Gs and Cs programs administered by the Program Operations Branch (POB) and the Processing and Payment Services Branch (PPSB), respectively. The Common System for Grants and Contributions (CSGC) is the system of record of Gs and Cs recipient information. Client records containing Gs and Cs recipient information are stored in the Project Life Cycle (PLC) Module of CSGC for organizations and in the Client Module of CSGC for individuals. The five key components of the Gs and Cs recipient information stored in CSGC include the recipient's: name, postal address, business number or Social Insurance Number (SIN), direct deposit banking information and contact information of the recipient's primary contact representative. The integrity and accuracy of the Gs and Cs recipient information is important to ensure payments issued by ESDC are made to the right recipient. An audit of Gs and Cs Recipient Information, formerly named as the Vendor Management Phase 2 audit, was approved as part of the 2015 to 2017 Risk-Based Audit Plan. The objective of this audit was to assess the design and operating effectiveness of key controls that ensure the integrity of Gs and Cs recipient information and ongoing monitoring of Gs and Cs recipient information"--Executive summary, p. 1.
