Management is responsible for implementing our recommendations.

We examine management’s implementation plans and perform procedures to determine whether management has implemented our recommendation(s) when management has asserted they have been implemented. We repeat our recommendations if we do not find evidence they have been implemented. We may also issue new recommendations for matters that come to our attention in the course of our assessment.

In this assessment of implementation, we report that three recommendations from 2014 have been implemented, and we make two new recommendations.

Alberta Health
