Reports on Plans and Priorities (RPPs) are individual expenditure plans for each department and agency (excluding Crown corporations). These reports provide increased levels of detail over a three-year period on an organization's main priorities by strategic outcome(s), program activity(ies) and planned/expected results, including links to related resource requirements. The RPPs also provide details on human resource requirements, major capital projects, grants and contributions, and net program costs. They are tabled in Parliament by the President of the Treasury Board on behalf of the ministers who preside over the appropriation-dependent departments and agencies identified in Schedules I, I.1 and II of the Financial Administration Act . These documents are usually tabled on or before March 31 and referred to committees, which may then report to the House of Commons pursuant to Standing Order 81(7).
