Kelly Sears has been engaged by the Chief Audit and Evaluation Executive at Correctional Service Canada to carry out a neutral assessment of the evaluation function. The Treasury Board Policy on Results requires that an independent assessment be carried out by all large departments every five years. Kelly Sears has completed several neutral assessments in recent years on behalf of such departments as Natural Resources Canada, Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. This project will continue until the fall of 2024.
