Risk Management and Economic Stimulus Programming

11/25/2009

The final report from a half-day event about managing risk on the frontline of economic stimulus. The gathering brought together program managers tasked with designing, delivering and managing the government's economic stimulus package and the internal and legislative auditors charged with oversight. Federal public servants, as well as government officials from both provincial and municipal levels, as well as members of the private sector, discussed with speakers and panellists how best to balance the demand to quickly unroll billions of dollars with the need for fiscal prudence and sound management of public funds.
