Formative Evaluation of the Canadian Apparel and Textile Industries Program (CATIP) — Textile Production Efficiency Component (TPEC/CANtex)
This report sets out the findings, conclusions and recommendations from a Formative Evaluation of Industry Canada's CANtex/TPEC component of the Canadian Apparel and Textile Industries Program. The Evaluation was undertaken during the summer and fall of 2006.
1.0 Introduction to the Evaluation
The objective of this Formative Evaluation is to provide input to inform decision-making concerning program design and delivery, fostering organizational learning, and promoting greater accountability and transparency.
The Evaluation also fulfills a commitment in the Results-Based Management and Accountability Framework of TPEC/CANtex in accordance with the Treasury Board Policy on Program Evaluation and the Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments. A condition of the additional funding received for TPEC/CANtex required Industry Canada to undertake a Formative Evaluation of the program covering operations through to March 2006. The evaluation research was conducted during September and October 2006, and, therefore, this report reflects certain aspects of program operations up to the end of October 2006.
