Audit and Studies Plan — 2011 and 2012

The Public Service Commission (PSC), on behalf of Parliament, oversees the integrity of the staffing system and the political impartiality of the public service. As part of fulfilling its accountability to Parliament, the PSC conducts independent audits and studies to examine the staffing activities of departments and agencies and to analyze government-wide issues.

This Audit and Studies Plan is designed to support the PSC's goal to audit departments and agencies on a cyclical basis of about five to seven years. More specifically, this plan identifies the engagements planned for 2011 and 2012. This plan is subject to modification as the PSC updates its risk assessments and monitoring activities.
