IR0113 - Compliance Chart Revised July 25, 2013 to Include Responses Received After July 19, 2013

Statement by Sonia L’Heureux, Parliamentary Budget Officer (interim)

In April 2013, I sought information necessary to undertake analysis into the 2012 federal budget. That analysis was requested by a parliamentarian pursuant to s. 79.2 of the Parliament of Canada Act. The information necessary for this purpose was requested from government departments and agencies. The first deadline for providing it came and went, and the majority of departments and agencies did not comply with the totality of my request. I informed the Speaker of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Commons. They asked me to write to the non-compliant departments and agencies again, requesting them to provide the information. That second deadline of July 19, 2013 came and went, and I have yet to be provided with all the information that I need to undertake the requested analysis. If and when I am provided with it, I look forward to performing the analysis and, thereby, discharging my legislative mandate.

Statement by Sonia L’Heureux, Interim PBO, Regarding Information Request IR0113

On May 20, 2013, the Member of Parliament for Outremont sought a progress report from the PBO on the analysis he requested regarding the impact of Budget 2012 savings initiatives.

Based on the current number and content of responses, at this time, the PBO is unable to complete the analysis.  We will continue to pursue the requested information from the government and will report back to the member in due course.
