Response from Infrastructure Canada

From Public Services and Procurement Canada

Mr. Michael Wernick
Clerk of the Privy Council and Secretary to the Cabinet

Dear Mr. Wernick:

This is further to your letter dated November 2, 2017 in which you seek our collaboration in responding to the challenges posed by the pay system.

Infrastructure Canada (INFC) is currently served by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) with a dedicated team rather than the Miramichi pay centre who provides general pay services to the majority of the Public Service. PSPC provides pay services exclusively to INFC employees through a Memorandum of Understanding.

INFC has put several measures in place to support employees through diligent monitoring and case by case management of pay issues as they arise. Senior Management and employees are also kept informed of any pay-related issues and actions being taken to resolve them. Attached table provides specifics regarding processes in place.

As we tackle these challenges, INFC will continue to be proactive in addressing pay issues. We are committed to working with our employees to ensure pay issues are resolved as quickly as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Kelly Gillis
