Thank you. It's an excellent question. It's really important question, and pretty central, in fact.
The truth of the matter is that with a shared building and a shared facility, as we say here, there actually is a shared accountability on this one. As was set out through the presentation, our department and our minister act as custodian. Our department is responsible for doing basically the project management and project delivery. We've adopted an interesting model for Centre Block especially, given the shared accountability.
As to the shared part, parliamentarians ultimately set what their needs are—and that's parliamentarians from both Houses, supported by the respective administrations and, as was mentioned earlier in the presentation as well, the key supporting functions. Those would be the Library of Parliament and the Parliamentary Protective Service, with each of their responsibilities. Those requirements are set by those entities, and we work together.
What is interesting and a bit novel for us is that Jennifer is leading not just a PSPC team, but an integrated project office that consists of representatives from the firms we've hired to conduct the work, and members of the House administration and members of the Senate administration. Different people are coming together, and we're working together on this to try to collectively work out the requirements. In effect, there's what I'm going to call an on-the-ground challenge function that happens in real time as we move through this together, with the respective administrations all working together as a part of this integrated project office to try to pull common decisions together, because it is a common space, to your exact point.
