When we do audits we walk into many different situations. Sometimes, in fact, we will walk into a situation where a department will tell us, “Look, we're working on something. Please wait until we've done that and come back and do the audit after we've implemented it.” We hear that a number of times.
Also, there are situations where, yes, our audit results could have an effect on the changes that people want to bring forward.
Sometimes our audits will help to spur something along. A department may have been working on something but it may have been put on a back burner. We come in and we do an audit on a situation and that spurs them to get it completed.
We walk into a number of different situations. Fundamentally, though, it's not our job to try to set policy or to try to say when policy should be changed, or legislation, or any of those types of things. What we do is decide what topics we want to audit, when we want to audit them, and we go in and do that.
Occasionally we will change our audit schedule if we feel that the department is in a particularly significant transformation period for that program and that it makes more sense to come in after they've completed that. Occasionally we will do that, but usually we just keep going with our audit schedule no matter where things are. Sometimes they line up with the legislative calendar and sometimes they don't, but that's not really something we take into account or that we try to influence.
