1. Background

Parks Canada Agency (PCA) is conducting a series of cyclical audits of key financial, administrative and management practices for all field units, service centres and the national office. There are 32 field units and four service centres in the PCA. Field units are groupings of national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas that are usually in proximity to one another. Their proximity allows them to share management and administrative resources. The service centres support the organization in a variety of professional and technical disciplines.

The Northern New Brunswick Field Unit (NNBFU) comprises: Kouchibouguac National Park; Fort Beauséjour, Grand-Pré, Monument-Lefebvre, Boishéhert and Beaubears Island Shipbuilding, Fort Gaspareaux, Beaubassin, Fort Lawrence, and Augustine Mound And Oxbow National Historic Sites; and Saint Croix Island International Historic Site. The NNBFU operates with a budget of approximately $6.4 million.

The audit of the NNBFU was conducted by Paragon Review and Consulting Inc. on behalf of the Performance, Evaluation and Audit Group of PCA as part of this cyclical audit program.
