Annex A. Terms of reference for the review

The objectives of the project were that it was to:

  • provide an assessment of the current state of the public sector innovation system in the Public Service of Canada, including (but not limited to) a framework for understanding the public sector innovation system in-depth, the role of the different components and the actors operating within it, its strengths and weaknesses, and its ability to deliver change

  • propose a set of priority areas for action for the Canadian government to reinforce its capacity to innovate and thereby deliver better outcomes for citizens and the government

  • demonstrate the role that innovation can play in public sector governance and concrete steps that can be taken to advance this, contribute to the growing body of data on public sector reform which can inform approaches to public sector innovation, both within Canada and among other countries, in support of good governance (including for donor and developing countries seeking to support good governance).
