Travel and Hospitality Expenses, Contracts and Position Reclassifications Notice
On December 12, 2003, the Prime Minister announced the mandatory publication on departmental Web sites of travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials; contracts entered into by the Government of Canada for amounts over $10,000 (with only limited exceptions such as national security); and the reclassification of positions.
For national security reasons, the TIMC is exempted from the mandatory disclosure of its travel and hospitality expenses. The same reasons justify the non-disclosure of contracts entered into by TIMC and to reclassification actions of TIMC employees.
Under the provisions of the Access to Information Act, members of the public may submit requests to the Department of National Defence for information on TIMC.
