THAT the City of Greater Sudbury extends the operation of the wrongdoing hotline to the end of June 2019 as outlined in the report entitled "Wrongdoing Hotline Status Report", from the Auditor General, presented at the Audit Committee meeting on May 15, 2018.

Relationship to the Strategic Plan / Health Impact Assessment

This report relates to the priority of 'Responsive, Fiscally Prudent, Open Governance' initiatives as outlied in 2015-2018 Corporate Strategic Plan.

Report Summary

Residents/staff have filed complaints to the wrongdoing hotline.

In accordance with stated priority of 'Open Governance', complaints need to be properly investigated.

Our analysis identified a higher than anticipated volume of complaints due to some confusion about the purpose of the 'Wrongdoing' Hotline.

Nine complaints out of 83 complaints received resulted in action planned or taken to improve future compliance with CGS policies.

Financial Implications

There are sufficient funds in the budget to cover the wrongdoing hotline.
