This course offers practical tips and strategies for understanding, addressing and working with the reporting and accountability requirements of the current Expenditure Management System (EMS) that is an essential element in developing and delivering programs, polices and services to Canadians. The Expenditure Management System (EMS) provides a framework in the Government of Canada for developing and implementing federal expenditure plans and it furnishes the evidence needed to allocate monies to key government priorities through the fiscal and budget processes. The EMS is intended to ensure value for money for all government spending. As an ongoing feature of this process, strategic reviews were also introduced to identify and to re-allocate funds from lower priority and lower performing program activities to higher priority, higher-performing activities. The results of these reviews are then reflected in Budget cycle documents.
