Statement of Conformance and Assurance

We have completed the internal audit of the Emergency Management program and the Business Continuity Planning program at the Department of Justice. The overall objective of the audit was to provide assurance that the management control framework is effective for these programs.

This audit conforms to the Internal Auditing Standards for the Government of Canada, as supported by the results of the quality assurance and improvement program.

In our professional judgment, sufficient and appropriate audit procedures have been conducted and evidence gathered to support the accuracy of the conclusion provided and contained in this report.

The conclusion is based on a comparison of the conditions, as they existed at the time of the audit, against pre-established audit criteria that were derived from the OCG publication Audit Criteria Related to the Management Accountability Framework: A Tool for Internal Auditors (OCG, March 2011).
