Greening Government Operations

Annex A

2011-12 Report on Plans and Priorities

Mandatory reporting on meeting the requirements of Section 7 of the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) Policy on Green Procurement, as applicable to departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act.

Targets / Strategies / Comments

Approach: CNSC’s DG of Finance and Administration has been mandated to address all aspects of the PWGSC Policy on Green Procurement.

Management Processes and Controls: The CNSC will be reviewing its contracting activities to include environmental considerations in the performance of the work where applicable. Furthermore, procedural documents on procurement and materiel management will be reviewed and updated to integrate environmental considerations in decision-making, from the procurement through to the disposal process. Subject to the completion of the implementation of a new version of the CNSC’s financial system, the CNSC will update the procurement module to improve the tracking and monitoring process of purchases from PWGSC green consolidated procurement instruments.

Setting Targets: The CNSC ensures that all purchases are made through PWGSC green consolidated procurement instruments, where available. The CNSC has established a number of targets for 2010-11. In addition, CNSC is planning to roll out the acquisition card to all support staff. In doing so, the federal government’s greening policy will be brought to the new cardholders’ attention within three months of receiving the card.

Meeting Targets: The CNSC expects to meet most of the targets for 2010-11.

Training: The CNSC requires that all existing functional specialist staff take Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) Course C215 by the end of 2010-11.

Performance Evaluations: Performance objectives related to green procurement were included in a senior contracting officer performance appraisal for 2010-11. In addition, the manager will include performance objectives related to green procurement in functional specialists’ performance evaluation for 2011-12.
