Report on Annual Expenditures for Travel, Hospitality and Conferences 2013–2014

As required by the Treasury Board Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures, this report provides information on the annual expenditures for each of travel, hospitality and conference fees for the Canada School of Public Service for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014. It also provides the variance explanations from the previous fiscal year in each of these areas.

This information is updated annually and does not contain information withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act.

Expenditures on travel, hospitality and conference fees incurred by federal departments and agencies are related to activities that support a departmental or agency mandate and the government's priorities.

In particular, for the Canada School of Public Service, this includes delivering results in accordance with the Treasury Board Policy on Learning, Training, and Development, which came into effect on January 1, 2006. The policy highlights the value of learning and the importance of creating a learning culture within the public service.

The School's strategic outcome and programs are outlined in the Canada School of Public Service's Report on Plans and Priorities 2014–15. In that context, School employees plan, design and offer learning programs and activities across the country.

Expenditures for travel, hospitality and conferences have declined from $1.6 million in 2012–13 to $1.5 million in 2013–14. This 6.25 percent reduction is due to continued efficiencies and compliance with the Directive's requirements to manage expenses and thereby minimize cost.

  • a reduction in the number of teaching contractors and changes to the School's programs.
