Funding: Literacy and Essential Skills – Follow-up

3. Follow-up

Any organization receiving funding is required to report on the results achieved.

Core-funded organizations are required to complete the Annual Performance Report, while project partners are required to complete the Project Results Report.

Annual performance report and environmental scan (for core funded organizations)

Organizations that receive core funding will be required to complete the Annual Performance Report (APR) and environmental scan in order to report on overall performance. The report asks the organization to critically analyze how it is managed, what it has achieved and what it plans to achieve.

Organizations are required to complete the APR which includes information on:

  • basic profile and budgetary information on the organization
  • a self-assessment of their performance (how it is managed) in the following seven areas:
    • governance
    • results and performance
    • risk
    • people
    • stewardship
    • client-focused service
    • accountability
  • actions to be taken to close gaps in performance among the seven areas noted above
  • a review of results in terms of what it plans to achieve (outputs and outcomes)
  • an environmental scan which provides details on the state of literacy and essential skills in their particular jurisdiction or areas of expertise

Project results report

Organizations are required to use a Project Results Report (PRR) throughout the lifetime of the project to demonstrate the overall performance and achievement of results. The report has a results-based approach to project management. It also have an assessment of the project's contribution to building the expertise, tools and partnerships to ensure that Canadians obtain literacy and essential skills needed for work, learning and life.

Specifically, the PRR summarizes the:

  • expected and actual results of the project;
  • activities and outputs that will be carried out to achieve the results;
  • possible issues which could affect the success of the project; and
  • overall progress of the project.
