Introduction

Purpose

This document presents Indian and Northern Affairs Canada’s (INAC) Evaluation Plan to assess the relevance and performance of its programs and policies, and covers the five year period from 2010-2011 to 2014-2015. It also contains performance measurement strategies to be reviewed by the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee at INAC.

The plan proposes increased coverage from recent years to address the requirements of the Treasury Board Secretariat’s (TBS) policies on Evaluation and Transfer Payments and the Federal Accountability Act, which require that there be a "review"/evaluation, of all direct spending, including transfer payment programs, every five years. As such, this plan provides for full evaluation coverage of all the grants and contributions administered by INAC as well as including direct program spending (non-Grant and Contribution) whenever possible to ensure full compliance with the TBS Evaluation Policy by 2013, as required.

Context for Evaluation

The context for evaluation is best described in the following excerpt from the April 2009 TBS policy on Evaluation:

3.2Evaluation provides Canadians, parliamentarians, ministers, central agencies and deputy heads an evidence‑based, neutral assessment of the value for money, i.e. relevance and performance, of federal government programs. Evaluation:

  1. supports accountability to Parliament and Canadians by helping the Government to credibly report on the results achieved with resources invested in programs;
  2. informs government decisions on resource allocation and reallocation by:

    1. supporting strategic reviews of existing program spending, to help ministers understand the ongoing relevance and performance of existing programs;
    2. providing objective information to help ministers understand how new spending proposals fit with existing programs, identify synergies and avoid wasteful duplication;
  3. supports deputy heads in managing for results by informing them about whether their programs are producing the outcomes that they were designed to produce, at an affordable cost; and,
  4. supports policy and program improvements by helping to identify lessons learned and best practices.

The framework for the systematic collection and analysis of performance information is the Department’s Management, Resources and Results Structure (MRRS). Evaluations are organized along the strategic outcomes of the Program Activity Architecture (PAA) and cover all sub- and sub-sub-activities of the PAA.

The plan also includes requirements for performance measurement strategies based on INAC’s approach to performance measurement strategies, which is derived from the following requirement in Treasury Board’s Transfer Payment Policy:

6.5.2 Ensuring that a performance measurement strategy is established at the time of program design, and that it is maintained and updated throughout its life cycle, to effectively support an evaluation or review of relevance and effectiveness of each transfer payment program.

Evaluation Planning Approach

The 2010-2011 to 2014-2015 Evaluation Plan proposes a comprehensive approach to the assessment of the Department’s programs and activities.

It covers all grant and contribution programs as required by the Federal Accountability Act, and TBS Policy on Evaluation as well as the Policy on Transfer Payments. Where possible programs are clustered to allow for the evaluation function to study and conclude on entire policy areas, using an optimal number of studies focused on broader horizontal issues. This approach also supports annual reporting along the structure of the Department’s PAA and supports strategic review exercises.

A special annual assessment (The Health of INAC’s Performance Information System), a requirement of the TBS evaluation policy, will review performance information being collected by the Department and its usefulness for departmental results reporting purposes. The first report that was tabled at the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee in June of 2009 will serve as a benchmark for upcoming years.

Planning Methodology

Documentation of INAC’s "evaluation universe" was a critical first step in developing the plan to ensure its comprehensiveness. The department’s PAA, its grant and contribution programs, their authorities and expiry dates were all analyzed. The plan reflects INACPAA elements / strategic outcomes and its grant and contribution programs.

A second step was to identify past commitments to, and central agency expectations for, evaluations, which required a review of departmental Treasury Board submissions’ program authorities, management responses to Auditor General audits, and previous evaluations.

In addition, an analysis was done of issues and risks related to achievement of expected outcomes based on management risk discussions, evaluation and audit findings, including those of the Office of the Auditor General, reports, and other documentation of program design and delivery issues facing the Department.

The Five-Year Evaluation and Performance Measurement Plan

The INAC Evaluation Plan, 2010-2011 to 2014-2015, proposes comprehensive and sustainable coverage of the Department’s programs and activities.

Coverage

The plan includes a total of 53 evaluations and one special study (53 in total) over a five-year period, focused on INAC’s key policy and program areas. The 52 evaluations provide coverage on all 69 of the Department’s grant and contribution authorities and also include evaluations of non grant and contribution direct program spending where possible.

The special study assesses factors that cut across programs and policies that affect, either directly or indirectly, achievement of the Department’s objectives.

Tables in the next section present evaluation projects and performance measurement strategies. Appendix A presents evaluation projects by sector and year. Appendix B presents performance measurement strategies by sector and year.

Timing

Evaluations have been timed not only to fulfill the five-year cycle requirements, but also to provide ample time (6 months to one year) before program continuation for program managers and decision-makers to consider evaluation findings. A central goal of this process has been to provide even distribution of evaluation projects to the greatest extent possible to mitigate the workload of INAC’s Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Branch and high evaluation activity within INAC sectors. Similarly, performance measurement strategies are planned to be initiated three to six months following the evaluation to provide the opportunity to integrate evaluation findings into performance measurement. PM Strategies will then be reviewed and updated as "evergreen documents" into the future.

Risk Considerations

The Treasury Board policy framework for determining risks and the risk assessment approach in the Policy on Transfer Payments were used to assess risks for evaluation and performance measurement planning. These risk assessments have been considered in the identification of evaluation projects and will be further considered in the identification of evaluation issues for individual projects. The risk assessments also factor significantly in the timing and resourcing for evaluations.

The first risk consideration is referred to as Mission-Risk and includes the following elements:

The second risk consideration is that of materiality, which includes the following elements:

The third risk consideration is that of performance information availability. This is a key concern in determining the scoping and sequencing of evaluations. Elements included in this risk consideration are:

These risk considerations were assessed by the evaluation team in consultation with program managers.

Most evaluations conducted by the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Branch (EPMRB) are impact evaluations, which are summative in nature, focusing on evaluating the relevance and performance of the programs. Implementation evaluations, which typically focus on design and delivery issues and can be conducted jointly with program managers, are also contained in the plan.

Additionally, the performance measurement planning included consideration of INAC’s Results-Based Management Accountability Framework (RMAF) Special Study, conducted in 2008, as part of its risk assessment.
