Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates (OGGO)

The committee met once this week to commence its study of the new entity Shared Services Canada. Hon. Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Minister for Status of Women, appeared as a witness to make a statement and answer questions.

The committee later suspended and resumed sitting in camera to proceed with matters related to committee business. It was agreed that the committee invite Mario Dion, nominee for the position of Public Sector Integrity Commissioner, to appear at its meeting of Tuesday, December 13, 2011. It was also agreed that a meeting of the Subcommittee on Agenda and Procedure be convened when the House of Commons resumes sitting in January 2012 in order to plan the Committee’s business.
