Strategies / Comments

  1. The AANDC Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Strategy was developed and implemented during the 2011-2012 FY.
  2. AANDC's Departmental GHG reduction target was misreported as "23.45% by March 31, 2021" in the department's last RPP for 2011-2012. This target was based on erroneous baseline emissions for 2005-2006 which were corrected and accepted by the Office of Greening Government Operations (OGGO) during 2011, and was expressed relative to the department's actual emissions for 2009-2010 rather than 2005-2006 as required.
  3. This target does not apply to buildings owned by AANDC. Targeted emission sources include department-owned vehicles.
  4. For the purposes of this target, AANDC is treating fuel purchased on "non-specific" fleet credit cards and consumed by vehicle types such as all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, materiel handling equipment, marine vessels, heavy trucks, special purpose trucks, and heavy mobile equipment as having been used by normal "on-road" (passenger/light-duty) vehicles. 
  5. The AANDC Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Strategy includes: roles and responsibilities, regional GHG reduction targets, potential methods to decrease emissions (i.e. vehicle right-sizing, driver training, up-fitting, etc.), and performance management strategies.
  6. Departmental GHG emissions in kilotonnes of CO2 equivalent stated above have been rounded to two decimal places.

Surplus Electronic and Electrical Equipment Target

Total number of departmental locations with EEE implementation plan fully implemented, expressed as a percentage of all locations, by the end of the given fiscal year. FY 2011-2012 18% (13 locations in the National Capital Region)  
FY 2012-2013 33% (13 locations in the National Capital Region and at least 11 regional locations)  
FY 2013-2014 100% (All departmental locations)  

Strategies / Comments

  1. The AANDC Implementation Plan for Departmental Surplus Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) was developed and implemented during the 2011-2012 FY.
  2. Current definition of departmental locations requiring EEE implementation plans: Operational facilities (72 total), including leased accommodations (63) and department-owned (9) buildings which support departmental operations. Locations do not include staff housing and non-operational real property owned by AANDC for future transfer to First Nations. This definition may be subject to change during the finalization of the department's implementation plan for the disposal of departmentally-generated EEE.
  3. AANDC's Asset Information Management System tracks most departmental surplus EEE directed to disposal mechanisms.

Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Presence of a green meeting guide. Yes  

Strategies / Comments

  1. The AANDC Green Meetings Guide was developed and implemented during the 2011-2012 FY.
  2. AANDC adopted a guide for greening meetings by adapting the guide developed by Environment Canada, and incorporating best practices established in similar guides prepared by other government departments.
  3. The draft AANDC Green Meetings Guide applies to all types of meetings. The guide includes a basic checklist for all meetings, and additional checklists for larger events.
  4. Roles and responsibilities: DG of Corporate Accounting and Materiel Management is target lead. The Chief Financial Officer and Senior Assistant Deputy Minister of Regional Operations are co-champions for greening departmental operations.

Green Procurement Targets

8.10 As of April 1, 2011, each department will establish at least 3 SMART green procurement targets to reduce environmental impacts.

FY 2012-2013 95% (expected)  
FY 2013-2014 100% (expected)  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Refers to specific type of commodity.
  2. Measurable: Information available through Public Works and Government Services Canada Standing Offers and AANDC's financial information system.
  3. Achievable: Forthcoming departmental policy will mandate the use of Public Works and Government Services Canada standing offers for all copy paper purchases during 2012-2013. Target is already partially implemented since most departmental paper purchases utilize PWGSC standing offers and have some recycled content.
  4. Relevant: Paper is a highly visible commodity to employees and provides a constant reminder of the Federal Government's commitment to greening operations. The target also complements departmental efforts on FSDS targets 8.7 and 8.8 for reducing printing devices and paper consumption.
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. AANDC established this target late in the 2011-2012 FY for implementation during 2012-2013, and is therefore unable to report on anticipated progress against the target for 2011-2012.
  2. For reference, 90% of all departmental paper purchases through PWGSC standing offers during 2010-2011 had at least 30% recycled content.
  3. Exclusions include paper used by departmental operations which print maps and paper supplies used with laboratory equipment. Target is restricted to paper used in office machines such as photocopiers and printers.
  4. Isolated locations where local suppliers are unable to provide recycled paper at or above 30% will be exempted from the target.


8.10.2 By March 31, 2014, the average fuel efficiency (in litres per 100 km) of all new light-duty vehicles purchased in the fiscal year by AANDC will be 15% improved over the average light-duty vehicle fleet fuel efficiency (in litres per 100 km) in fiscal year 2010-2011.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Average light-duty vehicle fleet fuel consumption relative to kilometres travelled in 2010-2011. Baseline: 13.2 L/100km  
Average fuel consumption relative to kilometres travelled of new light-duty vehicles purchased FY 2011-2012 Target not established  
FY 2012-2013 12.1 L/100km  
FY 2013-2014 11.2 L/100km  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Refers to specific type of commodity.
  2. Measurable: Information available in the PWGSC Government Motor Vehicle Ordering Guide and completed AANDC Vehicle Purchase Information and Justification Forms.
  3. Achievable: All departmental vehicle purchases require approval from Headquarters Asset Management, and AANDC is confident that new vehicles purchased to replace existing vehicles will be comparatively efficient. Resources have been identified for target implementation.
  4. Relevant: Vehicle purchases represent a significant proportion of the department's overall purchases of goods. The target also complements departmental efforts on FSDS target 8.5 for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from departmental light-duty vehicles.
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. Scope: All light-duty vehicles available through the PWGSC Government Motor Vehicle Ordering Guide (GMVOG)
  2. Baseline is provided by the Automotive Resources International (ARI) Financial Services Inc. Partnership Review report for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada for the period of April 2010 to March 2011.
  3. Performance indicator: Average fuel efficiency of all new vehicles acquired per year, based on average of manufacturer/GMVOG-stated (not actual) fuel consumption values. Each new vehicle's average fuel efficiency is to be calculated based on the assumption of equal use on city and highway roads (50%/50%).
  4. Expected environmental benefits: Reduced fuel consumption and fuel purchases. Target also supports departmental implementation of FSDS target 8.5.
  5. AANDC established this target during the 2011-2012 fiscal year for implementation during 2012-2013 and 2013-2014.

 

8.10.3 By March 31, 2014, 50% of contracts for professional services will be consistent with environmental criteria identified in the Guideline for Greening Services Procurement.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Volume of professional services contracts awarded that meet target criteria relative to total volume of contracts for professional services during the 2012-2013 fiscal year. Not available*  
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. FY 2012-2013 25% (expected)  
FY 2013-2014 50% (expected)  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Target applies to all contracts for professional services, including low-dollar value (LDV) contracts, sole-source contracts, advanced contract award notice (ACAN) procurements, departmental standing offers for services, PWGSC contracts, and call-ups against PWGSC Standing Offer Arrangements (SOAs) and Supply Arrangements (SAs).
  2. Measurable: Inclusion of green procurement criteria in service contracts is tracked in the mandatory AANDC Procurement and Contracting Checklist. Green procurement is also tracked by the department's financial information system
  3. Achievable: During 2010-2011, over 50% of departmental contracts by volume were call-ups and competitive procurement processes. AANDC is confident that it can include environmental considerations in such procurement processes and others.
  4. Relevant: Services constitute the majority of AANDC's procurement expenditures. For reference, over 66% of departmental procurement expenditures were for services during 2010-2011.
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. * AANDC will establish the baseline for this target during the 2012-2013 FY.
  2. Expected environmental benefits: decreased resource consumption due to departmental procurement operations and acquired services, and demonstration of the department's commitment to greening operations to both suppliers, clients and employees.
  3. During the 2012-2013 FY, AANDC will develop and implement tools to support the inclusion of environmental considerations in service contracts.

8.11 As of April 1, 2011, each department will establish SMART targets for training, employee performance evaluations, and management processes and controls, as they pertain to procurement decision-making.

(in 2010-11)
 
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. >75%  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Defined achievement level of 75% and type of employee.
  2. Measurable: Information available from the Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) and in-house HR tracking systems.
  3. Achievable: CSPS Course C215 can be completed in half a day.
  4. Relevant: Targets all relevant employees.
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. Methodology: Employee positions encompassing Procurement-related duties are defined as procurement functional specialists, materiel management functional specialists, real property functional specialists, managers of procurement, materiel management and/or real property functional specialists, and acquisition cardholders.
  2. In-house training used: None – CSPS Course C215 only.
  3. Reporting requirements: Collect data from CSPS annually. AANDC Procurement and Materiel Management maintains a list of training courses completed by its employees.
  4. Plans for engagement: To be addressed through the employee performance management process, and discussed by AANDC's Materiel Management (or "MATMAN") working group.


Employee performance evaluations for managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management.

By March 31, 2014 15% of performance evaluations for Managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management will incorporate environmental considerations.

Target Status  
Number of performance evaluations of managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management that incorporate environmental considerations relative to total number of performance evaluations of managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management. 4%
(in 2010-2011)
 
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. <15% (expected)  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Defined achievement level of 15% and types of employees. 15% represents the proportion of AANDC managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management located in the National Capital Region, and with responsibility to lead Green Procurement Implementation.
  2. Measurable: Information available from in-house HR tracking systems.
  3. Achievable: Target only applies to employees with responsibility for green procurement implementation and performance.
  4. Relevant: Targets all relevant employees (managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management in the National Capital Region / AANDC Headquarters).
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. Methodology: Managers and functional heads of procurement and materiel management are defined as individuals with responsibility to manage procurement and materiel management activities. Detailed criteria have been established to further define procurement and materiel management activities for the purposes of this target.
  2. Plans for engagement: Inclusion in future Employee Performance Agreements.

Target Status  
Number of departmental procurement processes and controls which support green procurement relative to the number of departmental procurement processes and controls which remain to be updated to include support for green procurement. Not available  
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. Not available  

Strategies / Comments

Why This Self Selected Target is SMART:

  1. Specific: Target applies to all departmental management processes and controls which relate to procurement.
  2. Measurable: During the 2012-2013 FY, AANDC will develop an inventory of all current departmental management processes and controls which relate to procurement.
  3. Achievable: AANDC recently completed a review of all departmental procurement policies, and has resources dedicated to procurement policy and the implementation of this target.
  4. Relevant: AANDC management processes and controls which relate procurement do not all support green procurement at present.
  5. Time-bound: Date established for target implementation and completion.

Other Reporting Considerations:

  1. Methodology: Analysis of departmental management processes and controls relating to procurement to identify those that should be updated to include environmental considerations.
