2010 Fall Report of the Auditor General of Canada
Chapter 1 – Canada’s Economic Action Plan

This chapter examined whether selected federal entities adequately managed selected programs for Canada’s Economic Action Plan (EAP), putting in place appropriate management practices and providing programs to eligible recipients in a timely manner. The findings generally were that the selected EAP programs examined in the audit adequately managed implementation, had appropriate management practices and were delivered to eligible recipients in a timely manner.

Recommendation 1.69 stated that the Department of Finance (Finance) and PCO should prepare a summary report to Parliament at the conclusion of the EAP that includes a detailed account of the EAP’s impact on the economy. The departments generally agreed, and stated that they are committed to supporting the government in its reporting on the delivery and economic impact of the EAP, building upon the five reports to Canadians that have been provided to date.

PCO, TBS and Finance agreed with Recommendation 1.74 that the practices introduced for the EAP should be assessed to determine which of them could be implemented, where applicable, to provide more timely and efficient processes for the design and delivery of current and future programs and initiatives.
