The CGC is in the process of establishing a Program Evaluation function, reporting to the Chief Audit Executive, that aligns with the Treasury Board Policy on Evaluation. Commencing a risk-based Evaluation Plan continues to be deferred due to other priorities within the CGC. During the current and next two years, the focus is on enhancing Performance Measurement Strategies to support existing and new program activities, establishing baseline measurements, and developing data sources. Completion of those activities strongly supports the future benefits from the Evaluation function.

Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations over the next three fiscal years

All upcoming Internal Audits over the next three fiscal years

In accordance with Treasury Board Policy on Internal Audit, the Chief Audit Executive performs an annual risk assessment of the CIHR audit universe in order to produce the CIHR Risk-Based Audit Plan. Historically, this plan was based on a five-year period, with the most recent period ending March 31, 2012.  Consistent with policy, at the end of the five year period, the CAE must reconsider the audit universe (which may include adding, deleting or clustering of units) and perform a renewed risk assessment.

The Risk Based Audit Plan for the period from 2012-13 to 2014-15 was approved at the March 21, 2012 meeting of the Audit Committee.

Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations over the next three fiscal years

Internal Audits

The following activities are included in the CNSC risk-based Audit Plan for the period 2011-12 to 2013-14. This plan is in the process of being reviewed and updated.

The updated plan will be submitted to the CNSC’s Audit Committee in May 2012 for review and recommendation for approval by the CNSC’s President. It is based on the current capacity of the CNSC’s audit function, risk assessments of proposed audit projects, and management responses and action plans for prior audits for follow-up. The revised plan will outline the projects planned for the upcoming three years. Projects undertaken depend on factors such as resources available to the audit function, the scope and complexity of projects, and the CNSC’s emerging issues and priorities.

The Commission has an Audit Committee with three members who are external to the government and two members internal to the Commission. The Committee is chaired by an external member.

Additional information on the CNSC Internal Audits is available on the CNSC Web site.

As a small agency under the current Treasury Board policy, the CNSC is required to evaluate all transfer payment programs every five years, and to undertake other evaluations directed by the President or by Treasury Board. These evaluations are based on an assessment or management needs and other factors such as risk.

Evaluations are undertaken internally by staff of the Head of Evaluation (the Director-General of Strategic Planning), who reports directly to the President on matters pertaining to evaluation. The President is advised by members of the Evaluation Committee, who are members of the CNSC’s Management Committee.

Notes/comments: The risk-based Audit Plan for 2012-15 described above is not yet final. Consultations continue with senior management to ensure that proposed audits address the department's highest risks and priorities. The Plan will be reviewed by the Departmental Audit Committee early in the new fiscal year, and recommended to deputies for approval and implementation. In the interim, the mission security audit and the strategic and operating review audit are approved and will proceed in the first quarter of 2012-13. Note, too, that the internal audit team has the capacity to conduct five internal audits each year, and that two audits are identified as "in reserve" should resources be available to conduct them.

The PSC has an established evaluation function governed by professional standards and TBS policies. The function also receives guidance and input from its departmental Evaluation Committee.

The rolling PSC 5-Year Evaluation Plan is updated annually. It takes into consideration emerging issues and priorities and shows progress towards increased evaluation coverage. Upon approval, the 5-Year Evaluation Plan 2012-2017 will be strategically integrated into the organization’s overall management activities and will support decision-making with the generation of timely, strategically focussed, objective and evidence-based information on the performance of PSC’s policies, programs and initiatives as an organization.

The table below gives the status of frameworks and evaluations planned for 2012-2013 and for the following two years. We reassess risks and priorities annually as part of our evaluation planning process. Consequently, activities planned for the 2013-2015 period may be revised to reflect changes in priority and resources level.

Evaluations

Statistics Canada always had a unique system of continually evaluating its statistical and corporate services programs. Prior to 2010, quadrennial program reviews identified accomplishments, challenges and future priorities along with users' satisfaction with services provided. Biennial program reports updated the quadrennial program reviews at mid-cycle.

In 2010, the Agency began working towards meeting the TBS Policy on Evaluation, and requested that programs complete a program performance report, including a program profile, logic model, update on past priorities, current priorities and strategic overview, and the top priorities for the coming three to five years. These components form the foundation of the TBS Performance Management Strategy: they ensure that the performance measures selected and developed produce useful and comprehensive information for monitoring and evaluating programs. The transition to full implementation of the Policy on Evaluation will be completed by April 2013; thus, the following table lists planned program performance reports up to 2012-13.
