Thank you.
I will just reiterate from the start that Statistics Canada is completely in control of its census and survey programs as well as its statistical methods. Our role at Shared Services Canada is to provide the IT platform to ensure the delivery of Statistics Canada's important programs, and to do that in a secure way.
We have 24 different services in our service catalogue at Shared Services Canada, and we have established service level expectations for each one of those services so that our customer departments know what level of service to expect from us. We've been working, as the president said, since about October with the chief statistician on a plan to reduce the risk in the IT infrastructure that is supporting Statistics Canada. It's a two-phase plan. The first phase was to address immediate areas of concern, and we're wrapping up that phase, and, as the chief statistician noted at this committee back a couple of weeks ago, he is satisfied that the level of risk has been substantially reduced.
The longer-term plan, as my colleagues alluded to, is to transfer Statistics Canada data holdings out of their old data centre and into the new one, but at every stage of this project, Statistics Canada retains ultimate control over the classification of its data and where that data is stored.
