Greening Government Operations—capacity-building
Activity Target as percentage (as reported in 2011–-2012 RPP) Actual results as percentage Description/Comments
Training for procurement and materiel management staff 100 100 All agency procurement officers have completed the online green procurement course.
Training for acquisition cardholders 5 5 The green procurement training currently being taken by procurement and materiel management staff is offered to over 100 acquisition cardholders across the Agency. Corporate Support Services Division recommends that employees follow the online green procurement course before being assigned an acquisition card.
Performance evaluations 100 100 A coding block to identify purchases that follow the green procurement policy has been added to AMMIS. The functionality is also being developed in the new financial system, CDFS, which will replace AMMIS in April 2013. Green procurement performance clauses are being added to this year's performance objectives for all procurement officers. Since the coding block has been added to AMMIS, green procurement performance identifiers have been added to the performance evaluations of contracting and materiel management employees.
Procurement processes and controls   Benchmark year Statistics Canada is to add environmental performance considerations in the evaluation criteria of all requests for proposals. A standard text has been developed to be included in all statements of work/requirements for all agency procurement.
Greening Government Operations—use of green consolidated procurement instruments
Good/Service Target as percentage (as reported in 2011–-2012 RPP) Actual results as percentage Description/Comments
All green consolidated procurement instruments Benchmark year 49% of contracts awarded 70% of non-salary dollars spent under contracts In 2008–2009, these data were not available in Statistics Canada's asset management system. As part of the Agency's green procurement initiatives, the system was to be modified to enable contracting and procurement officers to flag purchases as 'green.' However, no further investments will be made in AMMIS because of the plan to migrate to CDFS. The percentage identified here is the relationship of contracts let via PWGSC tools, rather than Statistics Canada tools. PWGSC tools have green considerations embedded in them.
Greening Government Operations— reduction initiatives for specific goods
Good/Service Target as percentage (as reported in 2011–-2012 RPP) Actual results as percentage Description/Comments
Office supplies Benchmark year 17.02% of the procurement for office supplies is completed under standing offers awarded by PWGSC. 19.7% of all office supplies purchased by the Store have green considerations. Statistics Canada has taken strong steps on the acquisition of office supplies. As of April 2009, it has been mandatory for all such purchases to be made through the Statistics Canada Store, except for regional operations. PWGSC tools have green considerations embedded in them.
Printers 1.7 Full-time equivalents per printer 3.4 Full-time equivalents per printer Plans are under way to centralize the control of Statistics Canada's printers and photocopiers. This initiative will have a significant positive impact, resulting in fewer printers and photocopiers and an increased percentage of green supplies for these machines. Statistics Canada is undertaking a printer modernization initiative, which will reduce the number of printers to 1 printer per 15 FTEs.
Photocopy paper 3,920 sheets per full-time equivalent 3,061 sheets per full-time equivalent PWGSC has recently issued a new standing offer for paper. Statistics Canada continues to look for paper reduction opportunities.
