OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
Today, the Government of Canada tabled the annual Reports on Plans and Priorities (RPPs) in the House of Commons.
The 2014-15 RPPs contain focused, relevant information that is in line with the content of the Main Estimates, tabled on February 27, 2014, and reflect the Government's commitment to modernizing parliamentary reporting.
Treasury Board President Tony Clement presented RPPs on behalf of 92 government departments and agencies.
- Reports on Plans and Priorities (RPPs) play an important role in the Government's planning and resource management processes. The President of the Treasury Board tables these documents in Parliament on behalf of the ministers who preside over appropriation-dependent departments and agencies. Ministers are ultimately accountable to Parliament for the content and format of their RPPs.
- The 2014-15 RPPs further explain the funding requirements outlined in the 2014-15 Main Estimates, which were tabled in February 2014.
- They provide details over a three-year period on an organization's main priorities, organized by strategic outcome, program, and expected results, and provide links to related resource requirements in the Main Estimates.
- The RPPs form the baseline against which organizations assess and report on their year-end performance through Departmental Performance Reports.
"This year's changes to the Reports on Plans and Priorities exemplify our Government's commitment to ensuring all Canadians have access to the information they want on how their tax dollars are spent, and have it available in a clear and concise format. Our Government continues to improve transparency and accountability in important public reporting documents such as the RPPs."
The Honourable Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board
