Management Accountability at the CRA

While still part of the Public Service of Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has a unique governance structure. Due to its act of creation, the Canada Revenue Agency Act, the Agency has a Board of Management (Board) that is responsible for overseeing the organization and administration of the Agency and the management of its resources, services, property, personnel and contracts.

In terms of management assessment the Agency is assessed by both the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) via its Management Accountability Framework (MAF), and by the Board of Management via the Board of Management Oversight Framework (BoMOF). Although there is some intended overlap, TBS refrains from assessing the Agency in areas that fall under the legislated authorities of the Board.
