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.

No expenses to report at this time.
