6. OBSERVATIONS – INTERFACES WITH OTHER JUSTICE SECTORS

The DND/CF LA’s interfaces with the Department of Justice are satisfactory.

DND/CF LA lawyers described their interfaces with the Department of Justice as professional and helpful. DND/CF LA management advised us that these interfaces are appropriate. Interviews with a sample of departmental representatives corroborated these views of the interactions. PSDI Portfolio representatives stated that the relationship with the DND/CF LA is good, despite the fact that they have assigned new tasks to the DND/CF LA that it was not required to carry out when it was part of the Business and Regulatory Law Portfolio. The PSDI Portfolio Office further indicated that both the quality and timeliness of input from the DND/CF LA are good.

It is the audit team’s opinion that the DND/CF LA’s interfaces with the Department are satisfactory.
