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 organizational change project. The DRDC MAF used the Treasury Board Secretariat MAF as a model, with Expectations, Indicators and Measures tiers. In Cycle 2 of the contract, full Indicator and Measures tiers were developed, and the Expectations tier developed in Cycle 1 was refined. In Cycle 2, two pilot studies were conducted using web-based surveys of the DRDC management cadre. The first pilot of Cycle 2 evaluated the Risk Management and Accountability elements. The second pilot of Cycle 2 evaluated Policy and Programs and Service elements, and re-evaluated the Stewardship element from Cycle 1. The results of the pilot studies confirm the feasibility of the survey-based approach and provide a partial first assessment of DRDC’s organizational performance against indicators for the elements of the proposed DRDC MAF.
