Thank you very much, Mr. Chair, and thank you all for being here.
It's an interesting part of the question, but I do have another one, and I'm going to share my time with Mr. MacKinnon, if I may, Mr. Chair.
I sit on the public accounts committee too. I'm here with both hats. In public accounts, for the past two and half years we've heard constantly from the Auditor General about the outcomes we should be looking at when we do procurement. The most important outcome we have to look for is what we deliver to Canadian citizens. However, we're not looking at how we deliver services, how we deliver what a government is supposed to deliver.
In the context of IT, how would you see government changing the way we look at these outcomes for Canadian citizens? How do we go about opening up the procurement process to SMEs? I believe that would be one of the best ways to encourage the change we need. How do we improve and deliver on our commitment to Canadian citizens?
