Response of Library and Archives Canada to the Round VI Management Accountability Framework Action Plan 2009-2010

Accountability

The aim of the MAF is to have each organization develop a chain of "Accountabilities for results [that] are clearly assigned and consistent with resources, and delegations [that] are appropriate to capabilities."

With respect to this MAF component, LAC has a responsibility delegation structure that covers all management tiers. The delegation structure is based on LAC's PAA, making it consistent with the institution's mission and activities. At LAC, therefore, responsibility is shared and characterized by continuity, and ensures that results are achieved for all Canadian citizens. TBS did rate LAC for the first year on accountability.
