Executive Summary

This document presents the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada Five-Year Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies 2015-16 to 2019-20. The Plan includes 35 evaluations, which will be launched over the next five years and eleven (11) 'carry forward' evaluations, which will be completed this fiscal year.

The Plan was informed by the guidance provided by Treasury Board Secretariat (March 2014) and reflects the coverage requirements set out in the updated Treasury Board Secretariat Policy on Evaluation that came into full effect on April 1, 2013. The Plan aligns with and supports the departmental Management, Resources and Results Structure; implements a risk-based approach to identify evaluations related to Internal Services; and provides 100 percent coverage of all other direct program spending on a five-year cycle.

This document provides an overview of the factors, which contributed to the timing, scope and calibration (level of effort) of individual evaluations, and shows that all program-related evaluative work will be supported by approved and up-to-date Performance Measurement Strategies. As indicated below, the Plan was developed in close collaboration with programs, other department sectors, and other government departments. 

Finally, the document provides an overview of recent departmental initiatives, which have contributed to the Plan's approach, as well as a summary of the Branch's other activities, which work to support and strengthen the Department's evaluation and performance measurement activities.

The Plan was formally approved at the February 26, 2015, meeting of the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee. This document includes updates on completed evaluations and performance measurement strategies to February 2, 2015.

 
 

 

1. Introduction

The Evaluation and Performance Measurement Review Branch (hereafter, 'EPMRB' or 'the Branch') of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) has prepared this Five-Year Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies, 2015-16 to 2019-20.

Across the Government of Canada, evaluation is understood as the systematic collection and analysis of evidence on the outcomes of programs to make judgments about their relevance and performance, and to examine alternative ways to deliver them or to achieve the same results.

Evaluations are expected to provide Canadians, parliamentarians, ministers, central agencies and deputy heads with an evidence-based, neutral assessment of the value for money, that is, the 'relevance and performance,' of federal government programs.Footnote 1

To support evaluation activities, all programs, including transfer payment programs, are required to have a Performance Measurement Strategy.Footnote 2 A Performance Measurement Strategy is a results-based management tool that is used to guide the selection, development and ongoing use of performance measures to guide program or corporate decision making. Its purpose is to assist program managers and deputy heads to:

Consistent with previous plans, this document outlines the Department's plan for evaluating 100 percent of all eligible direct program spendingFootnote 3 over the next five years. The Plan also includes evaluations associated with Internal Services, which are conducted on a risk basis. In addition, the document explains the Department's rationale for the timing, scope and calibration (i.e., level of effort) associated with individual evaluations, and shows that all program-related evaluative work will be supported by approved and up-to-date performance measurement strategies. Lastly, the Plan provides an overview of the Branch's other activities, which work to support and strengthen the Department's evaluation and performance measurement activities.

1.1 Purpose of the Five-Year Plan

The primary purpose of the Five-Year Plan on Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies is to help the Deputy Head ensure that credible, timely and neutral information on the ongoing relevance and performance of direct program spending is available to support evidence-based decision making on policy, expenditure management and program improvement.Footnote 4 The Plan also:

  • Provides an opportunity to align evaluations to ensure the information needs of the Department and other evaluation users (e.g. central agencies) are being met, as articulated in the Policy on Evaluation;
  • Helps ensure that evaluations supporting program redesign are planned and completed in advance of program renewal;
  • Provides an annual platform for program managers and heads of evaluation to discuss the development and implementation of performance measurement strategies that effectively support evaluations;
  • Allows departmental units responsible for the development of the Report on Plans and Priorities and the Departmental Performance Reports, as well as other groups engaged in strategic planning and reporting activities, to identify when evaluations will be available to inform their work;
  • Initiates regular communication and consensus building on evaluation needs and priorities across the Department; and
  • Provides central agencies with advanced notice of when evaluations will be available to inform their work (e.g. in support of Memoranda to Cabinet, Treasury Board submissions, strategic reviews).

Moreover, the Plan serves the Head of Evaluation as a tool for managing workflows and human resources planning. Status reports on the five-year plans are typically presented at all regular meetings of the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee (EPMRC) to provide assurance of timely implementation and alert the Committee to any required changes or additions. The EPMRC typically meets five times during the fiscal year.   

1.2 Departmental Context

1.2.1 Departmental Mandate

AANDC is the federal department primarily responsible for meeting the Government of Canada's obligations and commitments to First Nations, Inuit and Métis, and for fulfilling the federal government's constitutional responsibilities in the North (a further 33 departments and agencies also hold responsibilities for delivering Aboriginal and northern programs and services).

The Department's overall mandate derives from the Canadian constitution, the Indian Act, the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Act, territorial acts, treaties, comprehensive claims and self-government agreements as well as various other statutes affecting Aboriginal people and the North.

A significant amount of the Department's mandate is also derived from policy decisions and program practices that have developed over the years or framed by judicial decisions with direct policy implications for the Department; (Further details regarding the Department's mandate).

1.2.2 Program Structures and Performance

Departmental activities are largely structured by funding arrangements or formal agreements with First Nations and/or provincial or territorial governments. Most departmental programs, representing a majority of AANDC spending, are in fact delivered through partnerships with Aboriginal communities and federal-provincial or federal-territorial agreements. AANDC also works with urban Aboriginal peoples, Métis and non–status Indians (many of whom live in rural areas). According to the 2015–2016 Main EstimatesFootnote 5, AANDC spends over $8.0 billion annually, with approximately 86 percent ($6.9 billion) going directly to recipients through transfer payments.

Significant efforts were undertaken across the Department starting during fiscal year 2013-14 and continuing into 2014-15 to streamline and bring greater clarity to the Department's program structure (Program Alignment Architecture, Performance Measurement Framework, and Transfer Payment Programs) and to simplify reporting, expand public reporting and better measure and report on what matters.

As result of these efforts, the Department consolidated 39 of its current complement of 69 Transfer Payment Program authorities into 14, with the balance being assessed for further consolidation and AANDC's Program Alignment Architecture was reduced from 75 to 54 elements. Adjustments were also made to the Performance Measurement Framework to better support the Department's efforts achieve its expected strategic outcomes for:

  • The Government – Support good governance, rights and interests of Aboriginal Peoples.
  • The People - Individual, family and community well–being for First Nations and Inuit.
  • The Land and Economy - Full participation of First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals and communities in the economy.
  • The North - Self–reliance, prosperity and well–being for the people and communities of the North (see Appendix A for more detail).

Work continued into 2014-15 to complete the 2013-14 Performance Measurement Strategy Action Plan, as the Department worked to update, right size and complete the Department's Performance Measurement Strategies to support the broader initiatives and objectives described to ensure compliance with federal policy on performance measurement.

1.2.3 Planned Expenditures and Transfer Payments

According to the 2014 Public Accounts of Canada, AANDC is fifth largest federal department in terms of total ministerial net expenditures, and third largest in terms of total transfer payments and grants and contributions, after Finance Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada. In 2013-2014, AANDC's total net expenditures were $8,051,085 with the total transfer payments portion at $6,603,521.Footnote 6 Total forecasted spending for 2015-16 is shown below:

Strategic Outcomes 2015-16 Forecast Spending
The Government $2,070,482,376
The People $3,957,172,176
The Land and Economy $1,601,517,332
The North $394,885,884
Total Forecast Direct Program Spending $8,024,057,768
Internal Services $233,659,100
AANDC Total $8,257,716,868

2. Planning Methodology

The Directive on the Evaluation Function (Section 6.2.3) states that the Head of Evaluation is responsible for developing, and annually updating, a rolling, five-year evaluation plan. The approach for the creation of the Plan was as follows:

2.1 Drivers for Evaluation Planning

In accordance with the Treasury Board Secretariat Policy on Evaluation (Section 6.1.7), this Plan aligns with and supports the departmental Management, Resources and Results Structure, which is the framework for the systematic collection and analysis of performance information. It also ensures the evaluation of all ongoing grants and contribution programs every five years, as required by the Financial Administration Act (Section 42.1).

Finally, in accordance with Treasury Board guidance, the Branch calibrates the level of effort required for individual program evaluation using a risk-based approach. The risk exercise conducted for the 2014-15 Plan was done in co-operation with the Audit and Assurance Services Branch. That process was quite extensive and included extensive consultations with the assistant deputy ministers and directors general community within the Department. That process was not repeated for this year's planning process, however, a risk-based approach was still applied and this Plan is in concordance with the Risk-Based Audit Plan 2015-2016 to 2017-2018.

2.2 Defining the evaluation universe

The evaluation universe shows how all four pillars of the Program Alignment Architecture will be evaluated and how the Plan will achieve full coverage of the Program Alignment Architecture. The evaluation universe also demonstrates how each Program Alignment Architecture element is aligned with the Management, Resources and Results Structure and also shows the breakdown of forecast spending covered in each evaluation. The first step in preparing the Plan included a review of the evaluation universe to ensure the units of evaluation are valid.

Conduct a risk assessment of units of evaluation

In reviewing the evaluation universe, EPMRB engages in the Audit and Assurance Services Branch's risk ranking process and uses the results to inform the level of effort and allocation of resources for evaluations. Each year, the Audit and Assurance Services Branch develops risk rankings for auditable units in the Department. The process involves a review of departmental priorities, business conditions and risks as identified in a wide variety of sources, including, but not limited to, corporate, sector and program risk profiles, corporate and sector business plans, Management Accountability Framework assessments, performance reports, past audit, evaluation and review reports, and the previous year's risk-based planning exercise.  

The Audit and Assurance Services Branch risk approach is consistent with guidance from the Office of the Comptroller General, is thorough, and in many cases, the Audit and Evaluation units are the same. Risk considerations include impact of identified risks on the achievement of departmental outcomes, materiality, scope, potential for public scrutiny, legal risk, prevalence of risk, and the severity of consequences.

The risk rankings can be seen in the Plan and are colour-coded to reflect the five levels of risk identified in the Risk-Based Audit Plan.Footnote 8

2.3 Create the Plan

The 2015-16 Five-Year Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies builds upon the previous year's plan. The Plan reflects a transition to higher-level evaluations at the program and sub-program levels to better align with the Department's program structure and objectives, including Management, Resources and Results Structure elements and grants and contributions.Footnote 9 Deadlines for evaluations were calculated to ensure that an evaluation is scheduled to take place within five years from the date of the previous evaluation.

Planned audits have been added to the Plan to inform the calibration of effort for an evaluation, allow for integration of audit findings, and promote better co-ordination with programs where possible. Audits generally reveal a considerable amount about the design and management of programs and give early indications on the achievement of program outcomes. Audits scheduled in advance of an evaluation can impact the scope and level of effort needed for an evaluation.

Recent audits are also valuable sources of information for evaluation as they inform the analysis of program design and provide analysis of efficiency and economy. Ideally, audits and evaluations will be scheduled in different years, However, where audits and evaluations are scheduled to occur in the same year, it has been agreed that audit work will be conducted early in the fiscal year, so that programs are not overburdened with requests for information, and that the information and findings can be used in the evaluation.

Performance Measurement Strategies for each program/sub-program are included in the Plan, with the most recent approval date included as a reference for evaluation planning. 

Forty-six evaluations (eleven of which have been carried forward from last fiscal year) are scheduled between 2015-16 and 2019-20. The table below shows the distribution of evaluations for the five years covered by the Plan.

Year Government People Land and Economy North Internal Services TOTAL
Carry forward from 2014-15 2 0 4 4 1 11
2015-16 1 1 1 2 5 10
2016-17 2 3 1 2 0 8
2017-18 1 4 1 0 0 6
2018-19 3 0 4 1 0 8
2019-20 1 0 1 1 0 3
TOTAL 10 8 12 10 6 46

As indicated in the Plan, one evaluation is led by another department:

  • Environment Canada-led horizontal evaluation of Climate Change Adaptation (2015-16) (carried forward from 2014-15)

Please note that the evaluation projects identified in the Plan, as well as their components and timing, are subject to change particularly in the later years of the cycle. Changes can arise from various factors, including the introduction of new programs, the consolidation of program authorities, and/or the information needs of the Department.

2.4 Coverage

Total forecast direct program spending for 2015-16 is $8,024,057,768 and this Plan covers 99.91 percent of total forecast direct program spending (excluding Internal Services). Guidance from Treasury Board enables a deputy minister to decide the approach that his or her department will use for the evaluation of Internal Services. AANDC has adopted a risk-based approach to determine which internal services are to be evaluated, drawing upon both the risk analysis conducted by the Audit and Assurance Services Branch as well as the Department's Corporate Risk Profile. Through this process, six areas of work supported by Internal Services were identified for evaluations. These areas were deemed high risk or otherwise identified by senior management as areas of particular consideration. 

The following table provides an overview of planned coverage of direct program spending for the five years of this Plan.

Coverage of Direct Spending ($,000)
  Amount in

AANDC Total Forecast Spending for 2015-2016 $8,257,717  

Note: "Support to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission" (part of 2.4 Residential Schools Resolution will not be evaluated. This accounts for the 0.09 percent variance.

2.5 EPMRB – Implementing the Plan

The Five-Year Plan for Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies is managed by EPMRB of the Audit and Evaluation Sector at AANDC

The Branch undertakes a risk-based approach to calibrate the level of effort required for individual program evaluations when the scope of the evaluation is being developed and the Terms of Reference are being prepared.Footnote 10 The Terms of Reference for each evaluation are then approved by the EPMRC.

The table below provides an overview of resources spent on evaluation:

2.6 How Evaluations are Used in the Department

Evaluations conducted by EPMRB are used by the Department to inform decision making and reporting (e.g., Reports on Plans and Priorities, Departmental Performance Reports, Annual Report on the State of Performance Measurement); to assess progress made by programs in achieving expected results and to incorporate lessons learned in order to improve program design and delivery.

As part of follow-up and continuous improvement, a Management Response and Action Plan (MRAP) is developed for each evaluation. MRAPs are posted on the AANDC website with the corresponding evaluation report. Follow-up reporting on the progress implementing the MRAPs is reported every quarter and is also posted.  

Evaluation reports, MRAPs and follow-ups on MRAPs are published on the AANDC website.

2.7 Other Branch Activities

In addition to conducting evaluations, the Branch undertakes a wide range of activities to support and strengthen the Department's evaluation and performance measurement work. These include providing advice and support on performance measurement, corporate planning and reporting at the departmental level, supporting capacity building and outreach activities and developing research and special studies on evaluation and performance measurement issues. Some highlights of these activities are discussed below.

  • Performance Measurement 

EPMRB, working closely with other key internal service offices, provides advice and guidance on performance measurement strategies and other performance measurement-related activities in the Department.

Moreover, the EPMRC reviews and recommends the Deputy Head approve performance measurement strategies, the Annual Report on the State of Performance Measurement in the Department, and annual updates to the Department's Five-year Plans on Evaluation and Performance Measurement Strategies. Along with the Branch, the Committee also reviews and provides comments on updates to the Program Alignment Architecture and Performance Measurement Framework.

  • Corporate Advice

In addition to the Branch's support for performance measurement, the Branch also provides advice and support towards the development of Treasury Board submissions and Memoranda to Cabinet, on the Department's Report on Plans and Priorities and Departmental Performance Report and other related activities.

  • Capacity Development

EPMRB considers capacity development a key part of its work and has long worked to provide undergraduate and graduate students from across the country with opportunities to learn more about evaluation, performance measurement and the Department in general. Through the years, the Branch has had a particularly close working relationship with the University of Toronto's School of Public Policy. This school was the first to support and participate in the Branch's Summer Internship Program, discussed below. 

EPMRB worked with the University of Ottawa's Graduate School of Public Policy and International Affairs and other departmental stakeholders to develop a Capstone (final year) Seminar course for Master level students in the fall 2014 session. The course brought students and departmental officials together as the former study some of the key issues facing Aboriginal peoples in the areas of governance and economic development.

Over the past year, EPMRB evaluators have also engaged in a range of evaluation capacity development activities. These include:

  • Working with the Canada School of Public Service and the University of Toronto to provide public servants and graduate students with an introduction to evaluation in the federal government; and
  • Supporting the facilitation of the Indigenous Community Development courses offered by Health Canada.
 
  • Summer Internship Program

Beginning in 2008, the Branch has offered a unique internship program whereby eight to ten graduate students from selected universities across Canada, enrolled in Public Policy or Administration are hired for a period of 16 weeks over the summer. In addition to the University of Toronto, the Branch's interns have come from the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, University of Regina, University of Manitoba, University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Concordia University, Dalhousie University, and Memorial University.

This initiative has been very successful with approximately 25 percent of EPMRB interns bridged into permanent federal government positions. Over the years, the program has also generated significant interest and enquiries from other government departments.

EPMRB's Summer Internship Program is intended to:

  • Provide a meaningful work opportunity that will allow interns to apply their knowledge and critical thinking skills to a significant policy or research area.
  • Develop professional skills and networks in the context of the federal public service.
  • Build knowledge, cultural awareness and learning among interns around a specific set of issues and challenges related to their respective department and across government.
  • Offer the opportunity to understand the importance of evaluation and performance measurement across government and enable the potential for policy/program creativity and innovation.
  • Generate future interest in a public service career upon completion of studies, including the potential for bridging.

Students are placed in positions throughout the Department to gain a deeper understanding of AANDC activities, work in teams on a research project, and participate in learning sessions that provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary to complete their research project and to support their career development. This year's project focused on identifying opportunities for integrating reporting requirements, which can also better support the Department's efforts to measure what matters. 

Summer Internship Project – 2014

This year's research project produced Towards Integrated Reporting: A Study to Map AANDC's data elements and reporting mechanisms. The purpose of the project was to support AANDC's ongoing efforts to improve the existing reporting structure to ensure the collection of meaningful performance data. Robust performance data in turn supports good decision making and improves accountability. Students engaged in data analysis, literature reviews, document reviews and key informant interviews to gather evidence on existing data collection methods and tools. The goal was to provide key observations on the alignment and utility of current recipient data reporting, and to recommend ways in which the Department might streamline or simplify data collection. Recommendations included exploring a department-wide Information Management and Information Technology solution, signing data sharing agreements between jurisdictions and developing an integrated report that is mindful of community needs and the reporting burden. The report, containing conclusions and recommendations, was presented to the EPMRC in November 2014. 

  • Special Studies
From time to time, EPMRB and other branches of the Audit and Evaluation Sector conduct or commissions reviews, discussion papers and studies on topics of relevance to their mandates. Special studies conducted since 1999 can be found on the Audit and Evaluation Sector home page on the departmental website. Many of the student intern papers discussed in the previous section can be found on this site.
