Thank you, Minister.
Thank you for the question.
As the documents issued with the Main Estimates explain, when government responsibilities are transferred mid-year, the credits are automatically transferred. That's what happened on August 4 and November 15, 2011.
For 2011-2012, Shared Services Canada does not have credits as such, but we will as of April 1st, 2012. To explain the use of these credits, we will present a report on our plans and priorities, which will be tabled in the House at the same time as those of the other departments.
Since August 4, 2011, our main priority has been to maintain operational stability in the 43 departments. They have transferred money and employees to us, and we have continued our activities under the plans and projects in effect in those departments until the end of the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
