OAC Performance Measures Framework

As a first step in its performance measures framework, OAC developed a logic model that shows how OAC activities contribute to public value: from short- and mid-term outcomes through to long-term impacts on Ontario’s economy, society and culture. The logic model reflects OAC’s strategic plan, Vital Arts and Public Value: A Blueprint for 2014-2020, and is the foundation of OAC’s performance measurement framework.

OAC’s performance measures are short-term outcomes that:
  1. can be clearly attributed to OAC activities,
  2. can be feasibly measured every year, and
  3. help to guide decisions and build understanding about how OAC is achieving its goals.
By collecting performance measurement data on short-term outcomes, OAC gains evidence about its progress and contributions to longer term impacts.

OAC updates its performance measures report annually to track results against the indicators and targets for each measure.
