Dear Ms. Binnington,

In your letter dated 17 September 2013, you mentioned a couple of initiatives that were ongoing regarding the civilian classification grievance process.

As such, I am writing to you for a status update on:

  • the departmental submission to Treasury Board for authority to award a contract to a classification firm, and
  • the roll-out of the HR portal.

An update on these, as well as any other initiatives that may have been undertaken, would be greatly appreciated.
