Abstract
The Directorate of R&D Program Oversight was created in August 1998 and tasked to develop a strategy and processes for: (a) measuring the performance of the Defence R&D Branch in program delivery, and (b) assessing program effectiveness. This paper describes the system that has evolved, beginning with the performance measurement framework in which the oversight system must operate. This includes: Vision, Mission, Values, Strategic Objectives, Key Objectives, Business Plans, Business Activities, Outputs and Impact. The linkage of DRDC's performance measurement framework to DND's Defence Strategy 2020 is noted. Next, the paper provides considerable detail on measuring performance and preparing an annual performance report. The performance measurement concept is structured around the above-noted Key Objectives and DRDC's four Business Lines: (1) R&D for the Canadian Forces and National Defence. (2) Strategic S&T Policy and Advice. (3) S&T with National Security Partners. (4) Corporate Management. The principal focus is on (1), our main Business Line. Performance metrics include: success rate on Major Initiatives and milestones, resource expenditures, and client satisfaction.
