The fraudulent billing spanned 36 federal departments, agencies and Crown corporations between 2018 and 2022 with an estimated total of almost $5 million.

As three cases of fraud by subcontractors have come to light, the federal government says it’s taking new action to improve oversight and better detect fraudulent activities.

When asked at a news conference if anyone within government had been held accountable for the incidents, Jean-Yves Duclos, the minister of public services and procurement, said there hadn’t been any signs it was due to mismanagement.

In light of the first three cases of fraud, uncovered through separate investigations, officials said PSPC would establish a new Office of Supplier Integrity and Compliance to replace the integrity regime that came into effect in 2015.
