Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations over the next Three Fiscal Years

A Service Level Agreement has been established between the Internal Audit Sector of the Office of the Comptroller General of Canada (OCG) and the federal regional development agencies (RDA), including WD. This agreement became effective April 1, 2012 and details the provision of internal audit services by the OCG to the RDAs.

As a result of this agreement, an RDA Risk-Based Audit Plan (RBAP) was developed in 2013 for audits to be conducted in future fiscal years.
