The organizational structure of the Department of Capital Works and Services (CWS) personnel reflects the two main mandates of the Department: a) Capital Planning and Engineering Services and b) Regional Capital Works Programs and Services. The Department has been divided between two offices for efficiency purposes with partial decentralization to Val-d’Or as follows:
a) Capital Planning and Engineering Services (Montreal Coordination Office):
The responsibilities of the Capital Planning & Engineering Services’ office include the establishment and management of programs and services at the local level. This division specifically manages the New Relationship Agreement (NRA) capital planning, fire protection, purchasing and tracking of inventory of the CNG’s material resources and the development and implementation of by-laws relating to these activities. The department is also instrumental in the establishment of by-laws related to regional governance.
b) Regional Capital Works (Val-d’Or Liaison Office):
The responsibilities of the Regional Capital Works office focus primarily on providing operation and maintenance (O & M) services and the deliverance of programs at the regional level. This division specifically manages the planning, construction and O & M of all CNG buildings and other facilities required for the operations of the CNG (including those of justice, policing and CHRD). The establishment of by-laws related to housing and buildings used for regional governance and the coordination of housing programs in the Cree communities is also under the role of the liaison office.
The CWS mission statement advocates building goals and objectives to work towards achieving our goal: “Ensuring that the Eeyou/Eenou local and regional governments’ infrastructure and related services enhance people’s quality of life”.
