Management Accountability Framework

The Management Accountability Framework (MAF) is a key performance management tool that the federal government uses to:

  • Support the management accountability of deputy heads.
  • Improve management practices across departments and agencies.

What are MAF’s Objectives?

  • To clarify management expectations of deputy heads and support ongoing dialogue on management priorities with their executive team and the Treasury Board Secretariat.
  • To provide a comprehensive perspective on the state of management practices and challenges in the federal government.
  • To identify government-wide trends and general issues in order to help deputy heads set priorities and resolve issues.
