RELIABLE AND SECURE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES TO CANADIANS – A COMMITMENT OF THE NEW GOVERNMENT

February 2, 2016

Following the tabling of the 2015 Fall Reports of the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, Minister Foote issued the following statement:

We welcome the recommendations in the Auditor General’s 2015 Report regarding Information Technology Shared Services.

Canadians expect the information technology systems that support Government of Canada operations and services to be secure and cost-effective and contribute to citizen-centred government activities.   

Shared Services Canada (SSC) has already begun the implementation of the recommendations from the Auditor General’s report and is taking steps to improve services.

The 2015 report of the Auditor General reviewed the work of SSC during the first two years of a seven year plan to modernize the government’s information technology (IT) infrastructure.

That early period was focused on the planning and design of the transformation plan.

To continue making progress towards consolidating and modernizing the Government of Canada’s IT infrastructure, SSC, in full collaboration with other government departments and agencies, will deliver an updated IT Plan in the fall of 2016.  This plan will be developed in consultation with industry experts to ensure we include private and public sector expertise in the new plan.

Our government is committed to delivering the high-value programs and services Canadians deserve.  Having modern, reliable and secure infrastructure is critical to achieving this objective. 

The Honourable Judy M. Foote
Minister of Public Services and Procurement
