Transforming Commercial Border Management
The Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) Asset and Revenue Management (CARM) project is intended to transform CBSA’s approach to working with its commercial clients in order to realize modern, fair, and fiscally responsible trade enablement by providing greater transparency in working with clients such as commercial traders and other trade chain partners. Working with the Director and Sponsor, e-Cocreate assessed the status of CARM, a $370 million project that was mid-stream to completion. The review informed project management, and e-Cocreate’s work preparing a Treasury Board submission that supported the project.
Grants and Contributions Modernization at Canadian Heritage
Working with the Chief Transformation Officer, e-Cocreate identified a risk-based process model for grants and contributions that would allow the department to reduce file processing costs significantly while reducing client burden and improving its ability to track and report on performance. e-Cocreate developed project management materials and prepared a TB submission to deliver this transformed approach.
