Results-based Management and Accountability Framework

For Human Resources Management
Program architecture activity

1.0 Introduction

The viability and the evolution of organizations depend increasingly on their human resources. Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is no exception to the rule. The expertise, skills and dedication of its staff members make it possible to fulfill its mission: to preserve the documentary heritage of Canada and to be a source of enduring knowledge accessible to all. Its staff is the main resource for fulfilling its current responsibilities and for guaranteeing its future.

Just as it does with its financial and material resources, LAC must ensure the proper management of its human resources. It is this good management that enables it to maximize the value of its staff and develop its potential in order to achieve its strategic outcome. Responsibility for human resources management is shared by two groups of stakeholders who must work closely together to act wisely and effectively: functional specialists and line managers.

This Results-based Management and Accountability Framework (RMAF) outlines the roles and responsibilities of HR functional specialists and line managers. It presents a logic sequence of activities and the outputs for each, as well as a chain of expected outcomes for each organization. In also sets forth performance measures and a strategy for monitoring progress, measuring results and performing evaluations. The RMAF is therefore organized as follows:

  • Profile of LAC Human Resources Management
  • Logic Model
  • Continuous Performance Measurement Strategy
    • Performance indicators
    • Measurement strategy
  • Evaluation Strategy
    • Evaluation-related Issues
    • Methodologies
