Service standard


The ITB Branch is taking concrete steps to reduce administrative burden and improve client service. This includes streamlining the annual reporting process for contractors and implementing a six-month service standard for completing verification of annual reports.

The goal of the six-month service standard is to:

  • award contractor credits in a timely fashion;
  • standardize the annual reporting process; and
  • be accountable and transparent in our verification processes.

While the service standard does not provide contractors with a guarantee of credits after a certain date, it does provide reassurance that their annual reports will be reviewed quickly and efficiently.

Our commitment

We are committed to completing verifications within six months, 80% of the time.
