We are currently seeking candidates to join our volunteer Board of Directors
The Canadian Audit and Accountability Foundation (formerly CCAF-FCVI), based in Ottawa, is a dynamic, independent non-profit research and educational corporation founded in 1980. Its mission is to promote and strengthen public sector performance audit, oversight and accountability in Canada and abroad through research, education and knowledge sharing. The Foundation believes government is accountable to its citizens for the way it uses public resources and delivers public goods and services. For accountability to work properly, we believe all parties to the parliamentary accountability relationship – oversight bodies, public sector departments and organizations, and auditors – play important and interdependent roles. They operate together to form a system of accountability.
The Foundation promotes innovation and excellence in these areas and is focused on the needs and interests of its members as well as the broader public good. Further information on the Foundation and its strategy and activities can be accessed on our website.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors of respected professionals and thought leaders. Directors have links to our members and the communities we serve, and work together in a collegial manner to advise and oversee management's implementation of the Foundation's strategic goals and achievement of its mission and vision, and build relationships within its member communities. (Current Board of Directors)
The Board currently holds three meetings annually. In addition, Board members serve on one or two functional committees that meet by conference call about three times a year. Successful candidates will begin their service following election by the Foundation's members at the next Annual General Meeting on September 25, 2018. The Board utilizes staggered terms for directors of one to four years to facilitate balancing continuity and turnover of membership.
