The Ordre des comptables professionnels agréés du Québec is concerned by the issue of fund transfers raised during the preparatory phase of the Higher Education Summit

MONTREAL, Jan. 31, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- The CPA Order wishes to provide an independent external perspective on the views exchanged during the preparatory phase of the Higher Education Summit. It should be noted that the reliability of financial statements, which are audited by CPAs, cannot be called into question in any way. Indeed, universities are required to prepare their financial statements in accordance with Canadian accounting standards, while the CPA's opinion on these financial statements must be issued in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standards.

"The resource envelopes received from the Ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie (MESRST) allow for funds to be transferred from the operating fund to the capital fund. Under no circumstances is this accounting manipulation, and this practice does not call into question the validity of the audited financial statements," said Daniel McMahon, FCPA, FCA, president and CEO of the CPA Order.

Here is a straightforward example. Part of the funding allocated to the universities by the MESRST in the operating fund is earmarked for purchases of furniture, tools and equipment. Purchases of computers used for teaching are funded through the resource envelope of the operating fund, but at year end, in accordance with accounting standards, these acquisitions must be transferred to the capital fund since the assets in question will provide benefits over more than one fiscal year. "These fund transfers are therefore a standard and regulated practice," added Mr.McMahon.

All firms conduct financial statement audits in compliance with applicable budget rules, accounting standards and auditing standards.

"In all cases, we can assure the public of the professionalism and thoroughness of our CPA members who do the work." In this regard, it is hoped that the Summit's recommendations will lead to a better alignment of university funding rules, budget rules and accounting standards with the aim of maximizing transparency and improving the various stakeholders' understanding of accounting information.

The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
