Welcome to the 2016/17 Accountability Framework (AF) survey portal.  

The Department of Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) is actively engaged in the implementation of the Accountability Framework (AF). MACA continues to identify ways to enhance this tool and is planning some changes for the 17/18 delivery..

Please use your access code provided by the regional office to begin the self-directed survey. Completed surveys should be reviewed with Council and a motion or resolution provided to support the final submission using this online system.

There are comment buttons on each indicator page, which allow Municipalities and Designated authorities to explain their response to questions, provide context and/or to elaborate on the communities’ specific situation. It also allows for the community governments to leave comments or questions related to each specific indicator.

At the completion of the data collection, MACA will review responses and a validation process will be completed. MACA will follow up with communities to identify specific areas where there may need to be some follow up to the response provided by community.

MACA regional staff are available to provide support to community governments as they complete the survey. Please contact your Assistant Regional Superintendent if you require assistance with the AF or the online tool.

MACA encourages community governments to take full advantage of the AF tool to focus on core areas of operations that support the success of your community government. This tool has the opportunity to benefit MACA, as well as, every Municipality and Designated Authority in the Northwest Territories.
