The Trillium Party believes that the Auditor General’s resources should be for reviewing reports and updates provided by government departments and agencies ensuring accounting accuracy, it should be expanded to perform value-for-money audits and seeking out fraud.
- Increase resources to the auditor general’s office and focus on value for money audits.
- Ensure that the authority of the Auditor General’s office is sufficient to keep government under control – particularly when government is in violation of accounting standards and is breaching the trust of Ontarian’s through wasteful spending.
Compensation, Pension and Severance Packages:
Through the Auditor General’s Office there is a need for:
- Full disclosure and review of all financial expenditures of public funds.
- Requiring organizations that receive public funding from the Provincial Government to disclose annually the positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees paid over a certain level in a calendar year. This would apply to the Provincial Government, ministries, municipalities, hospitals, school boards, universities, colleges, any private-public partnerships and other public sector employers who receive significant funding from the provincial government.
