Abstract
Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), a special operating agency of the Department of National Defence, contracted Dalhousie University to support the development of a management accountability framework (MAF) as part of DRDC’s EXPEDITION 09 project. The DRDC MAF used the Treasury Board MAF as a model, with Expectations, Indicators and Measures tiers. Under Cycle 1 of the contract, a full Expectations tier was developed for the DRDC MAF, and a pilot study was conducted to examine application of the Stewardship Element of the Expectations, Indicators and Measures tiers to the DRDC management cadre. A survey instrument was used as the interface between the DRDC MAF and managers, to minimize management overhead. The results of the pilot study confirm the feasibility of the survey-based approach and provide a generally positive assessment of DRDC managers’ performance against indicators for stewardship: financial management and control; project management; procurement; asset management; and information management.
