Message from the Inspector General
I am proud to present the 2023-2026 strategic plan of the Office of Inspector General of Ville de Montréal. Our organization is unique in Canada. Its hierarchical and economic independence gives it full autonomy, reflected in its ability to make contract integrity a priority in Montreal.
Our strategic plan underscores our commitment to maintaining the deep-seated trust that City Council, related corporate entities and Montrealers have in our office. We have made our strategic choices with that in mind, based on three core values.
Since its creation in 2014, the OIG has developed in-depth knowledge of Montreal’s contractual integrity issues. Specifically, we accrued this knowledge due to our proximity with business units and suppliers, which enables us to detect and prevent breaches of contract. It also enables to be key observers, and thus gather information and even denunciations, which can potentially lead investigations or help us improve our training program.
The Office is also known for its proactive approach. We are a leading figure for our partners in the field thanks to our extensive expertise in contract performance monitoring. We will keep improving our monitoring plans and techniques, and implement the tools we need to maintain our high level of performance.
Lastly, we are committed to never take for granted our added value for the City and related corporate entities. Thanks to the commitment of our passionate, driven and creative teams, we will pursue our goal of ensuring our mission’s perennity, which includes deepening and exporting our expertise. In this way, the OIG will continue to ensure exemplary contract management, in line with the legal framework.
