Greening government operations

The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying (OCL) continues making progress towards integrating environmental performance considerations into its procurement decision-making processes.

Even though OCL has not yet established green procurement targets, it is contributing to the protection of the environment by using green procurement instruments whenever possible, buying high-content recycled paper, purchasing rechargeable batteries as well as recycling spent batteries and empty toner cartridges used in office printers.

Other initiatives include printing documents double-sided whenever possible, circulating documents of interest and/or making them available on a shared computer drive rather than printing multiple copies for internal distribution, and using the OCL's website as the preferred means for public distribution of information and corporate publications.

In 2011–12, the OCL worked toward the implementation of an electronic document and records management system which included scanning all registration files for migration to digital format. The migration was completed in March 2012, and since April 1, 2012 the Registration unit has been working 100% digitally. This helps reduce the consumption of paper.

The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying (OCL) has a rolling three-year audit plan.

In 2014–15, the OCL will continue its progress in implementing previous audit recommendations.

The Internal Audit Plan for fiscal years 2014–15 to 2016–17 can be found on the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying website.

B. Upcoming evaluations over the next three fiscal years

In 2014–15, the OCL will develop its multi-year evaluation plan to scope its future evaluative work.

As a small organization with limited resources, the OCL will coordinate its efforts between its audit and evaluation activities accordingly. This may result in modifications to the audit plan.
