Table 3-9:  Response to Parliamentary Committees and External Audits for 2007–08

Response to Parliamentary Committees

NRC did not participate in any Parliamentary Committees in 2007-08 that required a response.

Response to the Auditor General

There were no OAG performance audits completed in 2007-08. Significant progress has been made by NRC in implementing the recommendations of the previous year’s audit. Overall, very positive progress has been made by NRC in implementing the OAG’s recommendations.  All six of the recommendations made subsequently in the OAG’s February 2007 Status Report have been assessed as either being fully (four) or substantially (two) implemented.  Related accomplishments include:

  • Revised role of Council and membership profile;
  • Approved Corporate Business Plan;
  • Draft Human Resources Branch Business Plan pending SEC approval by March 31, 2008;
  • Development of the Management, Resources and Results Management Structure (MRRS) for NRC including key performance indicators and targets; and
  • Development of the Balanced Scorecard aligned to the Corporate Business Plan.

Work still requiring progress includes recommendations pertaining to the collection and reporting of performance data and research project management.  However, significant activity is being undertaken to address them.
