The Department of National Defence (DND) is guilty of 'gross mismanagement' and breaking ethics law, says a new report from the Office of the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner of Canada.

"The results of our investigation are troubling. Public servants must be able to have confidence in their senior leadership," Commissioner Joe Friday said in a media statement Tuesday.

The report looked into whistleblowers' allegations thatsenior managers at DND were not giving the public timely access to information about founded cases of wrongdoing at the department.

"Commissioner Friday concluded that DND committed gross mismanagement and contravened the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act," Friday's officesaid in a media statement Tuesday.

According to Treasury Board of Canada rules, once a case of wrongdoing has been confirmed, the department has 60 days to release information about the offence to the public.

Friday's office said his probe revealed three instances where DND missed its disclosure deadline in one case by almost four years.
