Quarterly Financial Report (unaudited) - 3rd Quarter 2015-2016

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015

1. Introduction

This quarterly report has been prepared by management as required by section 65.1 of the Financial Administration Act and in the form and manner prescribed by the Treasury Board. This quarterly report should be read in conjunction with the Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates. This quarterly report has not been subject to an external audit or review.

Mandate

The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP (CRCC)'s fundamental role is to provide civilian review of the conduct of the RCMP members in carrying out their policing duties, thereby holding the RCMP accountable to the public. The CRCC ensures that complaints about the conduct of RCMP members are examined fairly and impartially. Its findings and recommendations help identify and remedy policing problems which stem from the conduct of individual RCMP members or from deficiencies in RCMP policies or practices. A summary description of the CRCC program activities can be found in Part II of the Main Estimates.

Basis of Presentation

This quarterly report has been prepared by management using an expenditure basis of accounting and a special purpose financial reporting framework designed to meet financial information needs with respect to the use of spending authorities. The accompanying Statement of Authorities includes the CRCC's spending authorities granted by Parliament and those used by the agency, consistent with the Main Estimates for the 2015–16 fiscal year.

2. Highlights of fiscal quarter and fiscal year-to-date (YTD) results

This quarterly report reflects the results of the current fiscal period in relation to the Main Estimates for which full supply was released on June 18, 2015. Events that have taken place following the close of the quarter are not reflected in this report.

By the end of the third quarter of 2015–16, the CRCC had spent approximately 63% of its authorities. The CRCC's expenditures on personnel totaled 81% of its planned expenditures. The CRCC is anticipating that spending on personnel will remain high throughout the year as it continues its transition to its new mandate.

3. Risks and uncertainties

The CRCC has no control over serious incidents between the RCMP and the public. Such events may impact on workloads across the CRCC and have the potential to negatively affect the achievement of service standards. Through the use of supply arrangements for specialized investigators, the tracking of workloads within the CRCC and, where needed, the reallocation of staff and resources, the CRCC maintains the necessary flexibility to undertake important and high profile investigations.

4. Significant changes in relation to operations, personnel and programs

The CRCC relocated its public complaint intake function from Surrey, B.C. to its headquarters facilities in Ottawa. This change created operational efficiencies and better integrated complaint intake with complaint review requests and investigations. The move also generated significant net savings which have been reallocated to other priority operations
