Objective and Scope

The objective of this audit was to determine whether the Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission has adequate systems to manage the risks in it agreements to expand market access and value-added processing.


We concluded that the APMC does not have well-designed systems to manage and communicate the risks of its business arrangements and the agency does not have sufficient evidence to demonstrate that its risk management systems are operating effectively.
