Species at Risk Program: Results-Based Management and Accountability Framework and Risk-Based Audit Framework

8. RMAF-RBAF Implementation Review Strategy

The RMAF-RBAF implementation review strategy, presented in Table 16, was developed based on the principle of continual improvement. The strategy ensures that plans are in place to systematically review the performance and risk measurement strategy, the overall performance of the SAR Program, the protection of wildlife species at risk in Canada and the effectiveness and efficiency of the Species at Risk Act. The strategy will also ensure that the necessary adjustments are made, where required, to the performance and risk measurement strategy or the Program. This strategy identifies the approaches to be used (product), the timeframes and the responsibilities for the coordination of these reviews.
