The Agency’s revenues totalled $189.2 million in 2009–2010, compared to $182.2 million in 2008–2009.

This difference is mainly explained by the variation in the gain for revaluation due to the value fluctuation of the Canadian dollar.

Green Procurement

Meeting Policy Requirements

1. Has the department incorporated environmental performance considerations in its procurement decision-making processes?


2. Summary of initiatives to incorporate environmental performance considerations in procurement decision-making processes:

  • Staff from Corporate Security, Infrastructure and Management Services as well as from Information Management and Technology Branch were involved in training sessions.
  • Workgroup was formed to address changes.
  • Training for new incumbents is planned for 2011.
  • Corporate credit card holders were trained.
  • Green criteria are included in telecommunication purchases (e.g. rebuilt telephone sets).
  • MM Green Procurement Report development in SAP has been initiated (completion by March 31, 2011).
  • Pilot project involving partitions was implemented: a reusable partition system was purchased and installed, rather than building two new rooms with gypsum, which cannot be re-used once floor plans change.

3. Results achieved:

  • Training was delivered on as-required basis.
  • MM Green Procurement Report was developed, and is ready to be implemented.
  • There is a more comprehensive approach in accommodations plans and fit-up standards.
  • The re-utilization of existing furniture and refurbishing of partitions was implemented where possible.
  • Messages were posted on Entre Nous (CIDA intranet) to increase employees’ awareness of Earth Day and Environment Week, and of their impact on the environment (their environmental footprint).
  • The first fully "green" barbecue was held during National Public Service Week: recycling and composting measures were carried out, which resulted in a very small amount of garbage.

4. Contributions to facilitate the government-wide implementation of green procurement:

  • N/A

Green Procurement Targets

5. Has the department established green procurement targets?

  • The department is already using 100% green procurement for paper, computers, monitors, laptops, servers, furniture, and vehicles through the National Masters Standing Offers of Public Works and Government Services Canada.
  • A printing strategy will be developed to reduce the amount of equipment related to printing, scanning, faxing, and photocopying.

6. Summary of green procurement targets:

  • Provide training to all credit card holders in the Agency.
  • Provide training to new cardholders for corporate purchases.
  • Develop with Human Resources a communications strategy to integrate training on environmental aspects in performance evaluations.
  • Implement an agreement with a non-profit organization for recycling printer cartridges.
  • Provide training for modifications to SAP MM for Green Reporting.

7. Results achieved:

  • Recycling of used BlackBerry smart phones and parts, and cellular phones.
  • Current vehicle fleet meets Green Procurement Policy requirements: no change to fleet during the year.
  • Ten additional videoconference systems purchased and installed.
  • Green procurement standing offers used for all furniture purchased.

Response to the Auditor General

On November 3, 2009, the 2009 Fall Report of the Auditor General of Canada was presented to Parliament. Chapter 8 of this report assessed how CIDA had implemented its 2002 Policy Statement on Strengthening Aid Effectiveness, and provided a series of recommendations related to aid effectiveness. The Auditor General’s full report, which includes CIDA’s response, can be found at:

Summary: Chapter 8—Strengthening Aid Effectiveness—Canadian International Development Agency

The audit covered the period 2002–2009. It examined the planning and support of country programs, project selection and monitoring, and corporate management processes and oversight. Auditors gathered information at CIDA headquarters and in five countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, Honduras, and Vietnam.

The audit found that CIDA had not put in place all the required management processes to implement and monitor its aid-effectiveness commitments. As well, the Agency’s country-planning frameworks were found to have been not managed effectively. Although the audit found CIDA’s project selection rationales to be consistent with the principles of aid effectiveness and its project-planning processes addressed potential risks, it was noted that these processes would benefit from a consideration of CIDA’s strengths relative to those of other donors. Finally, the Auditor General noted that the frequent changes in policy direction and substantial turnover of senior managers in recent years posed significant challenges to CIDA in achieving its aid-effectiveness agenda, as the long-term nature of international development requires stability and predictability of programming.

Despite these drawbacks, the Auditor General did note that CIDA has performed very strongly in several areas critical to poverty reduction, and that the Agency had made considerable progress in donor harmonization, local ownership, and solid risk-management practices. Finally, the Auditor General made it clear that CIDA is well regarded out in the field, and that its partners appreciate the Agency’s efforts.
