Background Information

Since April 2018, all organizations are required to use a results reporting structure based on the Policy on Results, which consists of a Departmental Results Framework (DRF) and a Program Inventory.

The Policy on Results sets out the fundamental requirements for federal departmental accountability for performance information and evaluation, while highlighting the importance of results in management and spending decision making, as well as public reporting. It seeks to improve the achievement of results across government and enhancing understanding of the results the government seeks to achieve, does achieve, and the resources used to so.

A Departmental Results Framework describes:

This collection provides the data behind the PSC’s DRF indicators that measure if the PSC is meeting its core responsibility of Public Service Hiring and Non-partisanship.

To view the PSC’s full Departmental Results Framework and Program Inventory, please visit the  Infographic for the PSC on GC InfoBase.
