Back to the Ministry of Transportation Summary page

MINISTRY ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM - VOTE 2701

The program provides leadership, direction, and planning to enable the ministry's divisions to deliver the government's priority transportation initiatives. It is committed to utilizing effective controllership techniques to plan, develop, acquire, allocate and manage the ministry's facilities, finances and human resources, while responding to ongoing requirements to meet all government directives and processes as established by central agencies.

Advice provided to program areas is generated through an integrated approach, utilizing staff within the ministry, including Finance, Communications, and Facilities Management; and externally, including Human Resources, Audit, and Legal Services. While Human Resources, Internal Audit, and Legal Services retain their strategic leadership and dual reporting relationship with the Centre for Leadership/Human Resources Management, the Ministry of Finance, and the Attorney General, respectively, their functional costs are assumed by the Ministry of Transportation.
