This is Bureaucracy Now, the Word and Paper Report.
Thank you for listening.
Today we have a special report on the drafting of objectives for guidelines to ensure that the oversight of core policies involving public resources and the government public administration are informed by professional and objective functions that are dependent on departmental management.
We have an interview with a senior official charged with providing assurance as to whether these activities are managed in a way that demonstrates responsible stewardship.
Also today on our show, we will present the latest in our series on ways to ensure deputy heads are supported in their roles as defined in section 16.4 (1) and 16.4 (2) of the administration of departments and processes act.
This series is the result of an in-depth Bureaucracy Now investigation of management, control, and governance. Our investigative team has found that deputy heads need to receive assurance and advice from their departmental committees and functions to inform decision making at the highest levels of their departments.
More to come later in the show.
But first we would like to remind you of our appeal to supporters of Bureaucracy Now ! and our campaign to ensure our program continues to bring stories not covered by main stream media to the airwaves.
All across our country people are organizing events, staging fundraisers, and circulating petitions in what is known as the Bureaucracy Now Movement. The efforts are targeting local radio stations and opinion leaders and gaining strength every day.
As a listener who has yet to change the channel, we ask that you resist invitations to participate in these projects - as they seek to have our program taken off the air and to close our operations permanently.
Boycotts of our sponsor the Dominion Paper Company have also had an impact, and we may not be able to continue on-air much longer.
Please do what you can to support us by not supporting our detractors. Maybe even send them a memo.
Now back to our show, and our top story – the drafting of objectives for the oversight of policies.
