Management Commitments
  • The Results for Canadians management philosophy is based on four commitments:
        • citizen focus
        • values
        • responsible spending
        • achieving results
citizen centred service and the management board agenda
Citizen-Centred Service and the Management Board Agenda
  • Better service for Canadians is central to this Agenda.
  • To achieve it, the Government of Canada is implementing three major initiatives to:
    • Focus directly on client satisfaction

Service Improvement Initiative

    • Improve citizen access

Service Canada

    • Modernize service delivery

Government On-line

policy framework
Policy Framework
  • All departments and agencies directly serving citizens will adopt a systematic approach to service improvement planning integrated with their annual business planning process;
  • Client satisfaction will be measured at least annually for key services to the public using the Common Measurements Tool metrics; set a minimum 10% client satisfaction improvement target, to be achieved over the next five years;
  • Targets and performance against targets (client satisfaction and service standards) will be measured and reported annually in departments’ RPP/DPR documents;
  • Accountability for results, “from Clerk to clerk”;
  • TB President’s Awards will be established for excellence in improving client satisfaction
service improvement initiative improving service performance
Service Improvement Initiative:Improving Service Performance
  • In May, 2000 Treasury Board approved the Service Improvement Initiative and a policy framework for a results-based approach to continuous service improvement
  • The initiative and policy framework are based on the recommendations of an interdepartmental committee on service improvement (ACSI) and will continue to be driven by the service community
service improvement initiative improving service performance6
Service Improvement Initiative:Improving Service Performance
  • The Committee found that public sector best-practice organizations use a results-based approach to continuous improvement of client satisfaction, integrated with the annual business planning process
  • Analysis of 260 departmental examples suggests:
    • targeted service improvement planning exists in pockets;
    • client satisfaction rates have increased by up to 40%;
    • a systematic results-based approach is not widespread.
