Public Servants: Compared to the prior fiscal year, CAS' 2016-17 travel expenditures by public servants decreased by $20 thousand (5%). This is mainly due to less travel required for IT and facilities projects, including the completion of a new St. John's regional office. These decreases are partially offset by increased travel in the regions and related to security projects.
Non-Public Servants: Compared to the prior fiscal year, CAS' 2016-17 travel expenditures by non-public servants decreased by $10 thousand (8%). This is mainly due to small reductions in various areas.
Compared to the prior fiscal year, CAS' 2016-17 hospitality expenditures decreased by $16 thousand (31%). This is mainly due to a reduction in hospitality requirements in the area of judicial services.
Consistent with the previous fiscal year, CAS did not have any conference fees in 2016-17.
