Expenses claim reports

As of November 30, 2011, Hôpital Montfort became responsible for complying with the Broader Public Sector Expense Directive of the Management Board of Cabinet.

In fulfilling their mandates, staff and members of the Board of Trustees are required to travel to attend meetings and conferences, participate in working groups and training sessions, and meet with Ministry officials, various partners and other stakeholders.

In the interest of accountability, transparency and value for money, Hôpital Montfort has decided to post the expense reports of senior managers and Board of Trustee members on its Web site, in keeping with the Broader Public Sector Expense Directive of the Management Board of Cabinet.

Expenses incurred and claimed are governed by the Hôpital Montfort travel and representation expense authorization policy.

Since November 30, 2011, all Ontario hospitals are required to post the expenses of their senior managers and Board of Trustee members on their Web site every six months.

The Hôpital Montfort Board of Trustees has implemented the new travel and representation expense authorization policy based on principles of accountability, transparency, value for money and fairness.

Accountability
Hôpital Montfort is accountable for the public funds used to reimburse travel, meal and hospitality expenses. All expenses incurred must support the Hospital’s operating objectives.

Transparency
Hôpital Montfort is transparent with all stakeholders about its activities. The rules for incurring and reimbursing travel, meal and hospitality expenses are clear, easy to understand and available to the public.

Value for Money

Taxpayer dollars are used prudently and responsibly. Plans for travel, meals, accommodation and hospitality are necessary and reasonable, and reflect due regard for health and safety.

Fairness
Expenses are reimbursed if they have been duly authorized and were incurred to facilitate the Hospital’s business.
