Message from the Auditor General: FA1-23/2017-1-0E-PDF

“I have prepared this message to inform the House of Commons—as subsection 7(1)(b) of the Auditor General Act instructs me to do—that we did not receive all the information we needed for two of the audits we presented as part of the spring 2017 reports of the Auditor General to the Parliament of Canada. We have recently had many discussions with the Privy Council Office on this issue, and as a result, the government put in place a new order-in-council that I believe is a good first step to shape how the government will deal with our right to access information in future audits. Still, it is important for the House of Commons to be aware that sometimes, we have not received the information we needed to do our audits. I ask the House of Commons for its support as we work with the Privy Council Office to find a lasting solution to this problem”--p. 1.
