Office of Audit and Evaluation (OAE)
The Office of Audit and Evaluation is a key provider of reasonable assurance and advice on departmental operations to the Deputy Minister and the Comptroller General of Canada. Reporting directly to the Deputy Minister, the Office makes recommendations to improve governance, controls, performance and cost effectiveness of Public Works and Government Services Canada's (PWGSC) operations. It provides reasonable assurance on:
the effectiveness and adequacy of risk management, controls, and governance processes through its internal audit function (in compliance with the Treasury Board Policy on Internal Audit); and,
the relevance and performance of departmental programs, policies, and initiatives through its evaluation function (in compliance with the Treasury Board Policy on Results).
The Office of Audit and Evaluation also supports the Department's open and cooperative relationship with various federal oversight entities, such as the Office of the Auditor General and the Office of the Procurement Ombudsman, by providing a single point of coordination thereby ensuring a unified departmental approach and response.
