Ottawa is finally getting something right, according to one of its fiercest critics of late, federal auditor general Sheila Fraser.

In the past few years, Fraser has taken the federal government to task most notably for its sponsorship scandal. But when it comes to making improvements to human resources management, the government is getting it right, said Fraser in her annual report released last month.

“The government is making satisfactory progress in laying the groundwork for some far-reaching changes in the way it manages human resources,” she said.
