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.
