The CRTC’s first Departmental Performance Report said that “specifying expected program outcomes, developing meaningful indicators to demonstrate performance, perfecting the capacity to generate information and report on achievements – is a building block process.”[1]  In 1999 it added that “[t]he Departmental Performance Report provides a focus on results-based accountability by reporting on accomplishments achieved against the performance expectations and results commitments as set out in the spring Report on Plans and Priorities.”[2] The CRTC  said that the “Report on Plans and Priorities provides additional detail on … its programs primarily in terms of more strategically oriented planning and results information with a focus on outcomes.”[3]
