Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Judd, do you think it's fair comment to say that the Treasury Board was negligent in protecting taxpayers' funds that were being misused, going overbudget to the extent that they did? Do you not feel that the Treasury Board was negligent in terms of doing something sooner?
As our chairman said, it's kind of too little, too late. The horse is already out of the barn by the time you've shut the barn door.

But we're not talking about policy issues and resource issues. We're talking about an agency that came to you with a budget shortfall of $335,000. Whether they're a small agency or a big agency, I mean, does this happen all the time that it didn't ring bells, that here was a department that was obviously terribly overbudget? I don't imagine their budget is that large, but $335,000 should have rung a few bells of concern.

So could you tell me what's happened to the executive director who misled the Treasury Board?

Did he get a bonus, a performance bonus?

I don't want generically, I want specifics. I want to know, what happened to the individual who misled you, the Treasury Board? Is he still there, and did he get a performance bonus?

You mentioned that you had a report going, trying to find out why the employees didn't come to the various levels of reporting with concerns that they had. Our understanding, from the report, is that they did.
So perhaps you could explain to me a couple of things--first, why you were not aware that employees were reporting that there were problems in the agency, and second, what your report came up with.

Would you please table it with the clerk of the committee? We'd appreciate that.

To whom did they not report or disclose, the Treasury Board?

Is that with the Public Service Commission?

That's with the Treasury Board.

Do all civil servants, all personnel working for the public service, know that's where they are to report to? Are they advised of that? Are they given reminders on a regular basis that this is who they are to report to?

So a new employee may not know that this is where they are to direct their concerns.

Are you doing something to rectify that, to make sure that all present employees of the civil service know the proper process to register complaints?

With the Auditor General's report, although she did indicate that she wants restitution, or she's suggesting that the individuals who got performance bonuses, and benefits that they shouldn't have, be required to return the money, if you will, I'd like to take it one step further. When we talk about performance bonuses, how on earth could you give anybody performance bonuses when they went overbudget? Isn't that part of a performance of an individual, that they are able to manage the resources they have, to manage the department in such a way that they fall under the guidelines?
How is it possible that the Treasury Board would consider giving performance bonuses when there isn't a performance given?
