5. COMPLIANCE WITH LEGISLATION AND POLICIES

There is compliance with key government legislation and policies.

We reviewed a sample of financial transactions from the 2008-09 and 2009-10 fiscal years. All transactions had relevant supporting documentation (e.g. copies of invoices, contracts) and showed the required approvals under the Financial Administration Act.

The TBP LSU complies with the requirements of the Official Languages Act. Services are provided to the client in the language of choice[1], and staff meetings are bilingual. The LSU tracks its commitment to employment equity and its statistics show that it exceeds both departmental and portfolio percentages.

It is the opinion of the audit team that there is compliance with the key government legislative and central agency policy requirements governing the LSU’s operations.
