Organizational Information

PACS Organization Chart

Over the course of the year, the organization was fully staffed. However, as of April 2007 there were no personnel in the PACS, therefore, this year’s Management Representation Statement was signed by PCO. The DPR was prepared by PCO staff, based on information from a variety of sources. Non-financial information was prepared from reports and presentations that were in the PACS files. PCO provided financial services to the PACS under a Memorandum of Understanding.


PACS departmental performance and resource utilization tables are presented using its strategic outcomes and Program Activity Architecture (PAA) developed in 2006-2007 to respond to the government-wide initiative led by the Treasury Board Secretariat.

In 2006-2007, the following financial tables were applicable to PACS operations:

  • Table 1 Comparison of Planned to Actual Spending (including FTEs)
