Corporate Management and Comptrollership (CM&C) is responsible for providing service excellence in the areas of financial administration, asset and facility management, and contracting and procurement management. As well, Audit and Evaluation, which falls under Corporate Management and Comptrollership, supports the governance responsibilities of the Senior Executive Committee and provides services across the RCMP.
CM&C plays an important challenge function within the RCMP as it is accountable for supporting the most effective use of RCMP resources, positioning the organization for longer term financial stability, strengthening RCMP relationships with central agencies, as well as being an advocate of the RCMP as an organization of management excellence.
The primary role of CM&C is to support the responsible spending and safeguarding of the RCMP’s financial and physical resources to assist the RCMP in achieving its goal of being a strategy-focused, intelligence-led organization of excellence.
In addition to supporting the operational requirements of the organization, CM&C is also the centre of excellence for the RCMP’s implementation of the government-wide Modern Comptrollership initiative.
Under this initiative, CM&C strives to make the RCMP a model of modern management practices.
Through the provision of modern corporate management tools across all levels of the organization, CM&C supports the RCMP in addressing its strategic priorities and ultimately enables the organization to provide safe homes and safe communities for Canadians.
Corporate Management and Comptrollership (CM&C) is the expert functional authority responsible for delivering financial administration, asset and facility management, contracting and procurement management as well as internal audit, assurance and consulting services.
It plays a support role for its RCMP business line partners at Headquarters, the four regions across Canada (Pacific, NorthWest, Central and Atlantic), and by extension, its police community partners.
CM&C is also responsible for Force-wide implementation of Modern Comptrollership, a long-term government initiative focused on improved decision making, organizational performance and accountability for results.
Corporate Management and Comptrollership is divided into three key service lines and one centre of excellence:
The Office of Comptrollership Modernization is the centre of excellence for the RCMP’s implementation of the government-wide Modern Comptrollership initiative.
Modern Comptrollership is one of the key priorities identified by the Government of Canada to modernize management practices for the 21st century and to make the Government of Canada more transparent to Canadians and more responsive to their needs.
The RCMP became a pilot department for the implementation of Modern Comptrollership in January 2000 and, in April 2002, the RCMP made the Office of Comptrollership Modernization permanent, demonstrating its commitment to the implementation of modern management principles and practices across the Force.
Modern Comptrollership within the RCMP ensures that managers are provided with integrated financial and non-financial performance information, a mature approach to risk management, appropriate control systems and a framework of shared values, ethics and ethical practices, all with a focus on results.
The goal of Modern Comptrollership is to foster an environment that encourages effective leadership and clear accountability across the organization, while building a workforce of excellence consisting of motivated employees.
