The LAC Evaluation Committee approved this report in November 2009, under the caveat that the Modernization initiative and the renewal of the Program Activity Architecture needed to be integrated to the RMAF once these elements are further advanced. The current RMAF should be reviewed accordingly.
This document presents a Results-Based Management and Accountability Framework (RMAF) for Library and Archives Canada's (LAC) Management of the Documentary Heritage of Interest to Canada, excluding the Government Records Branch (the Branch has developed their own RMAF for disposition of the Government Information of Continuing Value, and their report has been already approved by DHCMT). These activities refer to the Activity 1.2 in the LAC Program Activity Architecture (PAA).
The purpose of an RMAF is to provide management with a "blueprint" for measuring and reporting on the output and outcomes of programs. These three sections are incorporated in an RMAF:
The RMAF was based on a document review, meeting sessions with LAC evaluation staff, and two workshops with program representatives held in February 2009. One workshop was used to finalize the logic model, and the other workshop was used to discuss potential performance indicators and evaluation issues. Interviews were conducted with managers in August and September 2009 on the performance indicators.
