The Office of Government Commerce (OGC), the Treasury-backed agency responsible for promoting best practice, efficiency and better procurement in the public sector, has appointed Rufus Leonard, the brand and digital media consultancy to re-design and re-develop its web presence. The appointment follows a three-way pitch, organised by the COI, who were themselves responsible for developing the brief and requirements. The contract will last for up to 5 years, and will also include ongoing support and maintenance for the new site. OGC is looking to raise its profile, following a decision to expand its market coverage to include local authorities, health and education, and emergency services, as well as central government departments. This means that the web is going to play an increasingly important part in reaching out in a cost effective manner to these audiences, which are spread right across the country.
The CBSA manages, controls and secures Canada's border at approximately 1,200 points across Canada. Border Services Officers face a growing challenge in intercepting potential threats, including high risk individuals, firearms, explosives and drugs. An average of 260,000 travelers are processed into Canada every day. Some of these travelers pose risks to the border officers at border crossings. In 2004, there were 621 weapons seizures, 8,711 drug seizures valued at $290 million, and currency seizures from suspected proceeds of crime valued at approximately $12,978,867. In addition, work-alone situations currently occur at 138 border sites, 95 of which are land port of entries. These situations put CBSA officers at increased risks. Canada's New Government is committed to ensuring that our borders are protected from those who threaten the security of Canada, while ensuring that legitimate commerce or travel is not delayed. To ensure Canada's borders are secure, the Government must ensure that those who guard our borders are themselves secure. Providing CBSA officers with side-arms and training, and ensuring that work-alone situations are eliminated, will help achieve this goal.
