Specifically, through the Values and Ethics Program Framework and its corporate risk profile, the Department has identified its transfer payment (grant and contribution) programs as the highest conflict of interest risk area. The Department has established a Centre of Expertise in the Human Resources Branch for Values and Ethics and identified a Values and Ethics Champion at the assistant deputy minister level. The Department’s Values and Ethics Champion, managers, and the Centre of Expertise provide advice and guidance to eliminate or reduce conflict of interest. Additionally, the Department added three conflict of interest clauses to its contribution agreements to avoid conflict of interest situations involving employees and recipients.
