Highlights of the auditor general's fall report to Parliament, released Tuesday:
The government must do more to protect critical infrastructure, such as power grids, from cyber threats.
The federal cyber-response centre still does not operate around the clock as promised, and is closed on weekends.
National Defence and Veterans Affairs don't have the information needed to ensure that soldiers moving back to civilian life get the help and benefits they're entitled to.
National Defence isn't keeping up with maintenance of its thousands of buildings and other facilities.
The government hasn't kept a 2007 pledge to publish analyses of its long-term fiscal prospects, but promises to do so starting next year.
The decision to raise the eligibility age for old age security, to 67 from 65, will save the government about $10 billion a year when it is fully implemented in 2029.
