SUBJECT: Year 2000 Project


1.1 The purpose of this directive is to provide information on the Year 2000 initiative which relates to the compensation systems of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC).


2.1 Lately, the Year 2000 and its impact on computer systems on January 1, 2000, has generated a lot of concern and produced a lot of information.

In an environment such as compensation, dates are critical to the delivery of services and can affect the accuracy, timeliness and credibility of the results. Therefore, PWGSC has established a Year 2000 Project to investigate the impact of the change to the year 2000 on the pay and pension systems for which the department is responsible.

2.2 The Year 2000 Project will ensure that all changes to systems are identified and tested well before the turn of the century in order to ensure that all compensation computer systems continue to function properly up to and after January 1, 2000.

Members of the Year 2000 Project Team are working to develop the best strategy to manage the implementation of any required systems changes in order to minimize their impact on the ongoing day-to-day operations.

Clients will continue to be kept periodically informed on the status of the project through communications with the PWGSC Compensation Services Office and Compensation Directives.


3.1 Any request for information regarding the foregoing should be addressed to your PWGSC Compensation Services Office.
