Business Transformation

As part of a branch-wide business transformation initiative, the Corporate Services Branch (CSB) has initiated a review of all its functional activities (Financial Management, Human Resources Management, Information Management/Information Technology, Procurement, Facilities Management, Audit, and Security services). This review was launched in September 2006. The purpose of the review is to build CSB's capability and capacity to deliver integrated corporate services to its clients. Through the business transformation exercise, CSB will:

  • clarify its strategic direction and delivery priorities;
  • increase process standardization across functional areas;
  • clarify roles and responsibilities within CSB, and between CSB and its clients and suppliers;
  • enhance the Branch's understanding of clients' needs and establish service level agreements;
  • develop a capacity to track and report on performance;
  • develop integrated tools, templates, processes, and infrastructure to support efficient and effective operational delivery;
  • develop a knowledge inventory that supports knowledge transfer, learning, and coaching; and
  • partner with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat to ensure that the implementation of the business transformation is aligned to emerging policies and practices.

This business transformation is being designed to achieve the following results for CSB clients:

  • increased access to integrated internal service infrastructure solutions;
  • increased ability to demonstrate business results;
  • increased ability to assure and report on compliance with Government of Canada legislation, policies, practices, and controls; and
  • increased access to advice and information for decision making.

The business transformation of the Corporate Services Branch is designed to increase the Branch's ability to support the Department's programs in meeting their commitments and aligning their results to the strategic direction of the Department and the government.
