A Management Accountability Framework for the Federal Public Service

Report by Mariane Beaudin, Anita Mayer

This brief report is a summary of a roundtable hosted by the Public Policy Forum in May 2003 held to seek the advice of participants on the draft of the Management Accountability Framework developed by the Treasury Board Secretariat at the time. The Management Accountability framework was developed to serve as a framework for management accountability vis-à-vis the Deputy Minister; more broadly, it was expected to serve as the “lens” through which the Treasury Board Secretariat evaluates departmental management performance.

The participants in this roundtable included academics, public administrators, and members of the private sector. As the report indicates, Deputy Ministers have expressed strong support for the Management Accountability Framework, but it was agreed that the Framework should be validated with the members of the academic community studying public administration, as well as other key players. Participants discussed any additions they thought should be made to the Framework, whether such indicators were relevant and/or realistic, and other related issues.
