Veterans Affairs Canada Responsibility Centre Phase II Audit - April 2011
Veterans Affairs Canada has 60 points of service or responsibility centres, including regional and district offices that provide a wide range of services and programs. District offices provide direct service for programs, with regional offices providing functional direction and oversight. The three largest points of direct service are the Quebec, Halifax and Edmonton district offices which combined serve almost one-third of participants in the Rehabilitation Program. All three District Offices have approximately three client service teams and a varied mix of program participants.
This audit was the second of two phases and was developed at the request of senior management to assess the internal controls surrounding the delegated authorities, the adequacy of the management control framework and to identify opportunities to improve efficiency. The first phase of the cyclical audit which was completed October 2010, focussed on operations in the Quebec District Office. This site was chosen because new delegated authorities were being piloted there. The audit team used the results from the Quebec audit to focus and inform the planning for the second phase, which focussed on operations in the Halifax and Edmonton district offices.
