In June 2021, we completed our assessment of implementation from our October 2019 examination of the International Centre of Regulatory Excellence (ICORE) recommendations.
We found that the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) implemented the four recommendations:

  • IMPLEMENTED Recommendation: AER Board to improve its oversight processes
  • IMPLEMENTED Recommendation: Perform sufficient due diligence to assess the risk of further waste of public resources not already identified in context of ICORE
  • IMPLEMENTED Recommendation: Evaluate whether any additional funds expended on ICORE activities are recoverable
  • IMPLEMENTED Recommendation: AER staff are made aware of, and are sufficiently trained on, AER’s whistleblowing process, consistent with Section 6 of Alberta’s Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection) Act
