TRACK KEYNOTE: ENABLING THE TRANSFORMATION TO ACTIVE DATA GOVERNANCE

Deborah Henderson, PMP, CDMP, Senior Data Governance Principal Consultant & Practice Manager, BROADSTREETDATA SOLUTIONS
Doug Lloyd, Financial System Authority, GOVERNMENT OF CANADA

 The Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada is the central function, which manages the allocation of cash to 110+ departments and agencies that make up the Government of Canada.   The Treasury Board is responsible for accountability and ethics, financial, personnel and administrative management, comptrollership, approving regulations and most Orders-in-Council. The Treasury Board has an administrative arm, the Secretariat, which was part of the Department of Finance until it was proclaimed a department.  As the administrative arm of the Treasury Board, the Secretariat has a dual mandate: to support the Treasury Board as a committee of ministers and to fulfill the statutory responsibilities of a central government agency.  The Secretariat is tasked with providing advice and support to Treasury Board ministers in their role of ensuring value-for-money as well as providing oversight of the financial management functions in departments and agencies.

 The intersection of cash management, federal reporting and value for money is core to the mission of the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS).   Within its mandate is to provide guidance to all departments and agencies on the use of financial systems in the Government of Canada including military.   The intensity of data centric decisions combined with the requirement of more complex activity based reporting and access to information requests has helped the organization advocate a move from passive data governance largely enabled through a common operating framework and supporting systems to active data governance based on an integrated accountability framework, data standards and common definitions of information.   In this discussion you will be privy to the approach of how to solve a high matrix politically oriented and federated environment through topics such as:

  • Positioning data standards as the central point for the enablement of cross departmental reporting
  • Developing actionable management frameworks, policy and directives that are used to define the operational data governance model
  • The importance of leading with business definitions to help Information Management develop supporting policy
