Audit & Evaluation - Reports & Responses

In 2012 the GNWT, in partnership with the Fédération Franco-Ténoise, developed the first GNWT Strategic Plan on French Language Communications and Services 2013-2018 (Strategic Plan 2013-2018) to improve communications and services delivery to the public in French across the GNWT, including all GNWT institutions as outlined in the Government Institution Regulations.

The Strategic Plan indicates the quality and adequacy of GNWT policies, plans and actions with respect to French language communications and services.  Progress towards planned goals and objectives should be evaluated and reported on regularly. 

In 2020 the GNWT developed a Monitoring, Evaluation and Accountability Plan to ensure the assessment of the implementation of the Strategic Plan.  The MEA Plan outlines an ongoing series of actions to determine the overall success and value of the Strategic Plan, and to inform the redevelopment of the next five-year Strategic Plan.

It should be noted that 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.  The most recent was a compliance audit in 2020-2021, the results of which – as well as the GNWT’s response – are published here:

An On-Going Commitment to Quality

In 2017-2018, an evaluation of the Strategic Plan 2013-2018 was conducted by a third-party contractor; the purpose of this evaluation was to the determine the overall success and value of the Strategic Plan 2013-2018 and inform the development of the next five-year Strategic Plan on French Language Communications and Services 2018-2023 (Strategic Plan 2018-2023). At the same time, the third-party contractor also audited the GNWT’s French language communications and services.

The results of the evaluation of the Strategic Plan 2013-2018, the audit of GNWT French language communications and services and the GNWT’s responses are presented below.
