In 2017, we audited the Government of Alberta’s capital planning systems to:
- guide departments in identifying capital needs
- confirm that departments’ capital needs aligned with long-term program needs and service delivery plans
- make capital investment recommendations to government committees
We made three recommendations to the Department of Infrastructure. In 2019, responsibility for the Government of Alberta capital planning systems was transferred from the Department of Infrastructure to the Department of Treasury Board and Finance. We completed the assessment of implementation based on these updated responsibilities.
In August 2022, we completed our assessment of whether the Department of Treasury Board and Finance has implemented our recommendations to improve maintenance planning systems and evaluate capital maintenance programs for buildings. We found both recommendations have been implemented.
