PIPSC to join independent review of Shared Services Canada

PIPSC is happy to announce that the Institute has been selected to take part in the Government of Canada’s independent review of Shared Services Canada, as a representative on Gartner Canada Co.’s panel of information technology (IT) experts. We will be sure to bring forward a message that Shared Services Canada needs both a plan and proper resources if it is to succeed. We also know that government decisions to outsource IT transformation projects have led to cost over-runs and in many cases catastrophic results.

Shared Services Canada is also undertaking a separate consultation and asking public servants from both within the department and outside it to respond. We encourage you to take the time to respond and share your views.
