Dr. Ghislain Arbour—The Evaluation Center Visiting Scholar from the National School of Public Administration, Quebec, Canada
Evaluation Cafe: February 20th, 2013
In 2000, the legislative assembly of the Province of Quebec, in Canada, adopted a results-based management system through its Public Administration Act (L.R.Q., 2000, c.8). Since then, the evaluation function has been the object of several administrative developments in order to make it a useful information input in the newly organized government management cycle. Among other initiatives, many public bodies adopted internal policies in order to specify the priorities, the meaning, the scope and the responsibilities associated to the evaluation function. This presentation is about an analysis of the evaluation policies adopted by several departments, through the lens of an institutional theoretical framework inspired by the work of Elinor Ostrom.
