{File By EX} ~ Prepare to Be Audited

"Marco, a newbie public program administrator in a major government department of the System, was worried. No, that was an understatement - he was scared you-know-whatless. He was about to undergo an audit by the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, and this, he had been advised, meant t-r-o-u-b-l-e in the Capital City. Marco knew that the Auditor General was a formidable warrior who saw herself as “an independent and reliable source of the objective, fact-based information that Parliament needs to fulfill one of its most important roles: holding the federal government accountable for its stewardship of public funds.”" So writes our mole within the Public Service in this month's installment of File By EX in the Ottawa Citizen.
I decided to depict Marco at his desk being informed in no uncertain terms that his department is about to under siege.
