Action Plan Implementation Status Update Report to the Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee - As of March 31, 2012

Regional Operations

Evaluation of the Miawpukek First Nation Grant Agreement (10013)
Approval Date: 02/22/2011

Action Plan Expected
Completion Date
1. Consider moving longstanding items from the comprehensive funding agreement to the Grant Agreement to reduce reporting burden to the MFN. The Department is currently reviewing the request and will be working with program sectors to determine the feasibility/possibility of including Contribution funding items into the annual Grant as a part of the base amount. Completion:

June 2011
Status: Underway

As of 31/03/2012:

The Region has identified contribution funded programs that could be included within the Grant authority. These items have been forwarded to HQ program for consideration.

AES: Underway
2. Consider putting in place a mechanism for funding level review that is based on community specific factors and needs rather than the formula approach commonly used by AANDC with other funding agreement approaches. A review of the current processes used for determining Grant base funding amounts, and consideration of program funding calculation methodologies currently used by AANDC will be required prior to further discussion with the community with respect to the acceptance of this recommendation. Completion: June 2011 Status: Underway

As of 31/03/2012:

To date a proposal requesting adjustments to the Grant Funding amount has not been prepared.

AES: Underway
3. Explore the opportunity to make a grant funding arrangement, similar to the MFN Grant Agreement, available to other eligible First Nations. AANDC is currently assessing the options of utilizing a Grant Funding approach for First Nations through the implementation of the new Policy on Transfer Payments, which comes into effect, April 1, 2011. Completion:

March 2012
Status: No Action to date

As of 31/03/2012:

This activity has been undertaken as part of the implementation of PTP and the increased use of the Grant approach. Consideration for funding calculation methodologies should be nationally agreed upon and included in a grant funding model. Recommend that this item be included on the DG PTP steering committee agenda (or other appropriate committee agenda) for further discussion when the topic of Grant Agreements is on the agenda.

AES: Close
