Introduction

Purpose

This document sets out the Indian and Northern Affairs Canada's (INAC) Evaluation Plan to assess the relevance and performance of its programs and covers the five year period from 2011-2012 to 2015-2016. It also contains performance measurement strategies to be approved by INAC's Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee (EPMRC). This plan provides for full evaluation coverage of all the grants and contributions administered by INAC as well as direct program spending to ensure full compliance with the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) Evaluation Policy by 2013.

Context for Evaluation

The April 2009 TBS Policy on Evaluation states:

3.2 Evaluation 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 program requirements for performance measurement strategies based on INAC's approach to performance measurement strategies. INAC's approach for performance measurement strategies 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.

The Annual Update of INAC's Five Year Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies

The 2011-2012 to 2015-2016 Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies proposes a comprehensive approach to the assessment of the Department's program activities, strategies and initiatives and is updated annually. Programs are strategically clustered for evaluation and performance measurement allowing for a focus on broader horizontal issues. This approach also supports annual reporting on results following the Department's PAA.

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 INAC PAA 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.

Following the completion of this analytical phase, consultations were held with responsible program managers to identify emerging areas not already captured as well as to validate proposed evaluation and performance measurement projects. Based on the analysis and consultations, the five-year plan has been updated and approved by EPMRC chaired by the Deputy Minister.

Coverage

The Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategy Plan includes a total of 47 evaluations and 25 Performance Measurement Strategies over a five-year period, focused on INAC's key policy and program areas. The Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Branch (EPMRB) also undertakes a number of specialized research projects including the Annual Assessment on the State of Performance Measurement, not all of which are reflected in this plan.

Evaluations to be completed in fiscal years 2011/2012 to 2015/2016 are to provide 100 percent coverage of all the Department's grant and contribution authorities and direct program spending (excluding authorities and program expenditures related to the Residential Schools Agreement and excluding internal services).

In order to reach 100 percent coverage every five years, evaluations will need to cover approximately 20 percent of Departmental grant and contribution authorities and total program expenditures each fiscal year. The evaluations to be completed in 2010/2011 are on schedule for achieving the goal of full coverage. In order to ensure that the plan will achieve approximately 20 percent coverage each fiscal year, the Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategy Plan will need to be updated when financial information is made available on the Internal Financial System.

Tables in the next section present forecasted 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. Appendix C presents projects completed in 2010-2011. Appendix D presents evaluation coverage of INAC's PAA.

Timing

Evaluations have been timed not only to fulfill the five-year cycle requirements, but also to provide sufficient time (six months to one year in advance of program continuation) for program managers and decision makers to consider evaluation findings for policy or program design renewal. A central goal is to provide even and strategically clustered distribution of evaluation projects to balance the impact on program managers, regional operations, and across sectors as well as on the EPMRB.

Please note, however, that the evaluation projects identified below, as well as their components and timing, are subject to change, particularly in the later years of the five year cycle. Changes in evaluation requirements can arise from a number of factors, including the introduction of new policy and programs, the consolidation of program authorities, and/or the information needs of INAC and the federal government.

Similarly, performance measurement strategies are planned taking into consideration evaluation work, policy renewal and program renovation. Performance measurement strategies are intended to be "evergreen documents", to be reviewed and adjusted as necessary by programs on an annual basis.

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 scoping and project planning. These risk assessments have been considered in the identification of evaluation and performance measurement projects. The risk assessments also factor significantly in the scoping of projects, and consequently, resourcing and time frames.

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:

The Evaluation Process and Protocols

EPMRB is guided by the TBS policy and standards on evaluation (April 1, 2009). For program and senior managers whose programs are being evaluated by EPMRB, the following principles guide the evaluation process:
