Manitoba’s Auditor General Tyson Shtyklo issued a report on the status of 209 recommendations from seven reports issued between November 2019 and October 2020. Less than 10 per cent of those recommendations have been implemented according to Shtyklo as of September 2022.
“If our recommendations are not implemented, our work is not having the desired and needed impact,” said Shtykalo, who today released his report, Follow up of Previously Issued Recommendations. “I do recognize that things were exceptionally challenging for a couple of years due to the pandemic, but I did expect to see more progress implementing our recommendations.”
Shtykalo encouraged the Public Accounts Committee to call the responsible entities to a Committee meeting to discuss the lack of progress.
“We strive to promote government accountability and public administration excellence for Manitobans,” the Auditor General said. “The primary way we do this is through our audit work and recommendations. It’s important that audited entities be held accountable for implementing these recommendations.”
