Evaluation of the New Building Canada Fund
Infrastructure Canada - Audit and Evaluation Branch July 09, 2018
This evaluation covered a three-year period from the Fund’s inception in 2014-2015 to 2016-2017. While the focus of this evaluation was on the design and implementation aspects, it also examined how effectively the NBCF delivered on its mandate.
4.4 Efficiency Finding 11: The time between the submission of projects by recipients and when it is reviewed by INFC's PRP has been reduced since the NBCF was amended in 2016.
A comparative analysis found that under PTIC-NRP the average project approval was reduced from 217 working days prior to the implementation of these changes to 86 working days post-implementation. This represents a reduction of almost 60%. In addition, the median time spent went from 198 working days to 77 working days, which represents a reduction of about 61%.
