Management Accountability Framework

The Management Accountability Framework (MAF) sets out Treasury Board's expectations of senior public service managers for good public service management.

MAF is structured around ten key elements that collectively define "management" and establish expectations for the good management of a department or agency. To measure these expectations, Treasury Board conducts yearly assessments to identify where management practices are doing well and where they can be enhanced.

Management excellence and the continuous improvement of programs and services are a priority for the CFIA. As such, the Agency applies the principles of MAF to its daily management practices.

In addition to MAF assessments, the Agency's management priorities can be found in its annual Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP). The CFIA's performance against the management expectations and commitments set out in the RPP is reported in its annual Departmental Performance Report (DPR).
