Performance Measurement and Reporting
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are committed to demonstrating results to Canadians for the funds invested through the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program. Therefore, processes for performance measurement and program evaluation, as well as for monitoring progress and appropriate use of funds have been established.
Banting postdoctoral researchers will be expected to:
- contribute to the review and evaluation of the Banting program and associated policies and processes by participating in evaluation studies, surveys, workshops and audits;
- provide data and/or reports upon request so that Vanier-Banting Secretariat staff can assess progress and outcomes during and after a postdoctoral researcher’s tenure of the award; and
- contribute to trajectory studies to assess the long-term impact of the Banting program.
Banting postdoctoral researchers must complete an end-of-award report as well as two follow-up surveys (one, five years after their fellowship has ended; the other, ten years after award tenure). Results from these documents allow Vanier-Banting Secretariat staff to measure the performance of the program. With the consent of the postdoctoral researcher, these results will also be used to highlight success stories.
The names of Banting postdoctoral researchers and other basic award information will be published on the Banting website.
