  • Workforce Management in Manitoba's Public Sector
    Audit Status: In Progress A substantial portion of Manitoba’s public service is nearing retirement, particularly among senior management. The Public Service Commission reported that within the next 5 years, nearly half of senior managers are expected to retire, and 70% by 2033. The public service is also seeing a substantial number of job vacancies, creating concern for the future staffing levels and leadership within the public service. We are looking at workforce management in Manitoba’s public service. This will include whether: There are action plans and codes of conduct in place. The classification process is consistent with workforce management principles in The Public Service Act. Workforce planning in the public service supports an agile and flexible workforce that can meet the changing needs of government.
  • Cybersecurity incident response process at Shared Health
    Reliable and accessible information systems are vital for delivering public health-care services in Manitoba. However, these information systems are also susceptible to cyberattacks, including data theft and ransomware. An effective cybersecurity incident response process and adequately designed and implemented controls are essential for managing and recovering from security incidents. In this audit, we will examine the controls implemented by Shared Health to mitigate the risks after a cybersecurity incident has occurred. Watch the video:

  • Audit of the Management and Control Activities of the Preparation of the Public Accounts
    Audit Status: In Progress We identified a number of control deficiencies and errors during our audit of the 2021/22 Public Accounts. These issues point to problems with capacity and distribution of responsibilities in government, related to the preparation of the Public Accounts. These issues also impact our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate audit evidence to complete the audit of the Public Accounts, in order for the Department of Finance to meet the annual September statutory deadline. As a result, we are conducting a performance audit of management and control activities related to the preparation of the Public Accounts. This audit will determine the likely causes of control and accounting process deficiencies identified during the audit of the Public Accounts
  • Transitioning Incarcerated Individuals From Custody
    Audit Status: In Progress The Department of Justice’s mission is to support and promote safe and just communities for all Manitobans. Manitoba’s corrections system contributes to this mission, with responsibility for the care, rehabilitation, and reintegration of the thousands of people encountering the Justice system each year. When an individual is sentenced, Correctional Services Division is responsible for preparing them to relocate into the community after incarceration. This is done through individual assessments and interventions that respond to identified needs. This audit will assess whether the Correctional Services Division is preparing individuals for release from custody.

During this time, approximately $400 million was provided to these third-party organizations.
