Formative Evaluation of the National Archival Development Program
Final Report

3.2 Key informant interviews

Key informant interviews formed a central line of evidence in this evaluation. The interview guide was developed by PRA in consultation with LAC, drawing from the evaluation issues outlined in the RMAF-RBAF of the program. We conducted a total of 16 interviews with 18 key informants between February 4 and March 5, 2008, including representatives from LAC's Strategic Office, the CCA, Provincial/Territorial Councils and institutional Project Recipients. Most interviews were conducted by telephone; however, two were conducted in person. Similar to the selection process used for the project file review, key informants were selected to ensure that a range of project sizes, national objectives, regions and archival types were represented. Table 3 presents the distribution of key informants consulted. Names of key informants are not provided for privacy reasons. See Appendix A for the interview guide.
