The military has its own pay system that is separate from that of the public service. In 2014, the Treasury Board approved that we go ahead with a project to modernize military pay. In 2015, they asked us to move military pay into Phoenix. We looked at that and last June, we assessed that was probably not going to be the best idea we've ever had, so we cancelled that move. The transfer of money back to us is money that had gone to Public Services to help define that project. Since we've cancelled it, we're going to keep the payroll system in the military. We're upgrading the system now and that will keep us in good shape for the next five years. We're not going to move it over to Phoenix.
