Action Plan Implementation Status Update Report to the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee - As of September 30, 2010

Northern Affairs Organization

Summative Evaluation of the Contribution for Inuit Counselling in the South (2009093)
Approval Date: 05/14/2010

Project Recommendations Action Plan Expected Completion Date Program Response
1. INAC's NAO, in collaboration with IRS, should consider where the ICS contribution and urban Inuit may be best supported within the federal family. This consideration should take account the various evaluation and research exercises pertaining to urban Aboriginal people, which are to be completed during 2010-11, including information on the evolving needs of Inuit living in urban communities. The option of transferring the funding associated with the ICS authority to the Basic Organizational Capacity (BOC) funding for TI should also be explored as both authorities essentially support core activities.
  • NAO will engage IRS in an examination of the feasibility of transferring the funding associated with the ICS authority to the BOC.
  • In addition, NAO, in collaboration with IRS, will consider where the ICS contribution and urban Inuit may be best supported within the federal family taking into consideration findings from other evaluation and research exercises pertaining to urban Aboriginal people, as well as any other information deemed important.
May 15 - July 31, 2010

Consideration will begin immediately, and will take into account findings from the evaluation and research exercises. It is anticipated that this work will be concluded by the end of the fiscal year 2010-2011.
Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

Initial discussions have been held with IRS and agreement achieved on objective of moving funding. Further discussions in summer were postponed due to other priorities and pressures in both organizations. Next meeting will involve CFO and is being scheduled for early November. Next steps include determining specific mechanisms. Now targeting late Fall to complete.

2. In the short term, INAC's NAO and IRS should clarify and document the roles and responsibilities of their respective organizations vis-à-vis the ICS contribution and its recipient(s) and determine how best to improve recipient reporting so as to better align with current performance measurement requirements.
  • NAO and IRS will jointly develop a document outlining the roles and responsibilities of their respective groups vis-à-vis the ICS contribution and its recipient(s).
  • Provide such direction to the recipient.
May 15 - June 30, 2010 Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

Roles are clear for 2010-2011 and have been communicated to TI. Ongoing roles and responsibilities beginning this fiscal year can only be confirmed once recommendation #1 is fully actioned.
