The Management Accountability Framework (MAF) establishes the standards for management in the Government of Canada and is the basis for management accountability between departments/agencies and the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) and the Public Service Human Resources Management Agency (PSHRMAC).

In 2005, the TBS and PSHRMAC assessed the state of management in over 50 departments and agencies (including the Privy Council Office) using the 41 indicators in the MAF.  The results are a snapshot of a department's performance against a specific set of standards, as of March 31, 2006. They do not reflect the efforts made towards strengthening management performance since that time.  The TBS and PSHRMAC continue to work with federal government departments and agencies to refine this assessment tool.
