Audit and Evaluation
The GNWT’s provision of French language communications and services is guided by its Strategic Plan on French Language Communication and Services. The Strategic Plan indicates the quality and adequacy of GNWT policies, plans and actions with respect to French language communications and services.
The GNWT’s first Strategic Plan was developed in partnership with the Fédération franco-ténoise for 2013-2018.
In 2017-2018, an evaluation of the 2013-2018 Strategic Plan was conducted by a third-party contractor; the purpose of this evaluation was to the determine the overall success and value of the Plan and inform the development of the next five-year Plan. The contractor also audited the GNWT’s French language communications and services. The GNWT also developed a Monitoring, Evaluation and Accountability Plan to ensure the assessment of the implementation of the Strategic Plan.
The current Strategic Plan 2018-2023 has a renewed focus on accountability, including monitoring and evaluation, and includes provision for systematic audits to be carried out across GNWT institutions. Audits may concentrate on a specific issue, or on a few questions.
