Good morning, everyone. This is meeting number 69 of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts.
We are continuing our study of “Report 1, Management of Fraud Risk”, from the spring 2017 reports of the Auditor General of Canada.
I'll remind everyone that we began this on Tuesday. We heard from the various different departments and from our Auditor General on Tuesday. They will not be giving another opening statement. We will carry on the meeting from where we are.
We have returning Mr. Michael Ferguson, the Auditor General of Canada; Paul Glover, president of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency; Bill Matthews, comptroller general of Canada, the Treasury Board Secretariat; Simon Kennedy, deputy minister, the Department of Health; Hélène Laurendeau, deputy minister, the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development; Ian Shugart, deputy minister, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development; and Marie Lemay, Department of Public Works and Government Services.
We will now proceed with questions from the members. So that we can understand the format here, we're going to begin with how we ended. There are two departments still to report in regard to the mandatory training. Then we will go back to the first round of questioning without hearing another witness.
We thank Mr. Kennedy. He answered the question of Mr. Christopherson in regard to mandatory training. Mr. Christopherson asked how we can be certain any training is being adhered to, when we have training that's laid out and only 20% in some departments are taking that training.
We will now move to Mr. Glover.
