Education and Social Development Programs and Partnership - Infrastructure Branch

Summative Evaluation of the First Nation Infrastructure Fund (FNIF)
Approval Date: 24/02/2010

Project Recommendations Action Plan Expected Completion Date Program Response
1. Ensure that:
a) when there is a call-up for proposals, enough time is provided in order to create an atmosphere where the particular FNs have an equal opportunity to access the program and submit proposals;

b) INAC regional officers are equipped with the required time and resources in order that the selection processes perform efficiently and in a transparent manner.
a) Increase length of call out period from 2 months to 4 months. 31/03/2011 Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

A further call for proposals is not expected as the fund is fully committed through to the end of 2012/2013.

AES: Underway

b) Provide training, increased guidance and workshops to regional offices. 31/03/2011
2. Put in place a mechanism or process, due to the high staff turnover, to ensure that knowledge and corporate memory are duly passed on to successors so that key information would be communicated in a timely fashion to First Nations. Centrally store general program documentation, such as project selection rational and joint Infrastructure Canada and INAC program adjustments and decisions. 31/03/2011 Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

Key documents and materials are now centrally stored and available.

AES: Underway

3. Put in place a performance measurement process to comply with the MOU and report to INFC. Incorporate FNIF indicators within the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Performance Measurement Strategy. 31/03/2011

Status: Close

Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

Early discussions underway with regional offices to select one or two key FNIF performance indicators. Once finalized and found to be feasible to collect, these will be incorporated into the CFM Performance Measurement Strategy.

AES: Close – Fully Implemented

4. Negotiate with INFC in order to be more strategic in the use of FNIF funds, taking into consideration local/regional priorities especially since the demand from FNs, is higher than the funding capacity. Work with Infrastructure Canada to identify priorities across regions. 31/03/2011

Status: Close

Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2010:

INAC continues to work closely with Infrastructure Canada to review investment needs and trends to align these with strategic priorities.

AES: Close – Fully Implemented
