OTTAWA —
Gold necklace, hockey ticket, camera, ipod, spa
Even a gift card to the liquor store.
It\'s part of half.
Over the past five years, a federal department has distributed millions of dollars of loot to favored workers.
The Treasury Board Secretariat, with approximately 1,900 employees, now spends more than $100,000 a year rewarding staff.
Since the conservative government took office for the first time in 2006, annual output has quadrupled.
That figure peaked at $135,000 in 2011, the year when the Conservative government began cutting staff and programs to eliminate the federal deficit by 2015.
Tony Clement, chairman of the Treasury Board, recently criticized the benefits that civil servants can enjoy and publicly vowed to cut them, which made him inconsistent with the Union.
But internal documents show that his department is so generous to him.
Known as the \"instant rewards\" program, goods and services worth up to $500 are sometimes distributed.
Transportation includes Sears sewing machine, laptop, Tiffany ring, Garmin GPS equipment, as well as various cash cards for spa, restaurant, gas station, bar, toys R & R, Canadian Tires, shopper\'s pharmacy, Tim Houghton and Starbucks.
The cheapest employee reward is a $10 gift card from a coffee shop or bowling alley.
A worker received a French language book worth $14.
For some, it sounds more like a punishment than a reward.
At the high end, many employees receive a $500 Best Buy gift card, for example, most of the store\'s merchandise is in the Rideau Center mall.
A worker from the \"expenditure management\" received a $50 gift card that can be used in any LCBO.
The internal documents obtained by Canadian media under the Access to Information Act list the names of the workers, but do not state the reasons for the hundreds of awards.
According to the rules of the Canada Revenue Service, such awards are considered taxable benefits and are often listed under the \"gross value\" reported to the Canada Revenue Service, as well as the \"net value\" in the hands of workers \".
For example, a $10 gift certificate for the second Cup is worth $14.
According to the Canada Revenue Service, the gross is 29.
The difference is that the employee should pay the tax for the benefit, which is the tax paid by the department.
The reward program has a net cap of $500 per item or cash card.
A year ago, when a new Democratic lawmaker asked several departments if they had bought tickets for sports events, the dispute over employee awards came.
Clement\'s response was that the Treasury Board purchased four NHL tickets worth $1,109 for employees between 2009 and 2011.
The minister banned the purchase of sporting goods.
Shortly after the information was released by the NDP, tickets for the event began.
The US Foreign Ministry also banned the purchase of such items. According to reports, American officials spent $69,498 on hockey and baseball. S.
The visit during the period from 2006 to 2012 was mainly for the promotion of Canadian exports.
Federal policy encourages rewards for the good work of employees, but it also states that \"recognition often does not cost anything.
\"Informal and No.
Cost confirmation-
A human said, \"it will take a minute.
Resource documents on the website of the Treasury Board.
\"Write Bravo.
Leave a card on the employee\'s desk and just say \"bravo, work well \". . . . Stick a post-it-
Pay attention to saying \"thank you\" in the staff\'s work space \".
\"Most departments and institutions have employee recognition programs, and many departments and institutions have an\" instant reward \"element, a management tool authorized by the government in 1990.
An internal survey showed that managers prefer the \"instant rewards\" program because they are easier to manage and less costly than more formal rewards.

With regard to the broad policy of access to information, the \"instant reward\" document was delivered more than two months after the statutory deadline set out in the Access to Information Act expired.
A department spokesman did not respond to requests for comment and information last week.
