The intent of the Public Sector Accountability Act (BPSAA) and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is that public organizations spending taxpayer dollars must be transparent and open to scrutiny – a belief that is endorsed by SAH, our management team and Board of Directors. Public disclosure of our executive team’s compensation adds a new dimension of transparency already in place at SAH. The following is a link to Dr. Webb’s compensation contract:
SAH is committed to being open and transparent with its stakeholders and the general public. Further to this commitment is our compliance with the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act 2010. This act was implemented to strengthen and reinforce accountability, transparency and oversight of government expense claims.
As per direction received from the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, SAH has created this summary which details the expense reports of Board Members and Senior Staff.
