Memorandum

MEMORANDUM TO: Employment Ontario (EO) Service Provider Network

FROM: Teresa Damaso, Director, Program Delivery Support Branch

DATE: March 17, 2016

SUBJECT: Introduction of the Quarterly Status and Adjustment Report (QSAR) to the Apprenticeship Enhancement Fund (AEF) Agreements


 

The purpose of this memo is to announce to AEF agreement holders that a Quarterly Status and Adjustment Report (QSAR) is being introduced for the AEF program. The QSAR will replace the interim and final progress reports.

WHAT IS HAPPENING:

Starting 2016, AEF agreement holders will be required to submit a QSAR on regular intervals. The AEF QSAR is designed to provide a consistent approach for reporting and feedback against performance commitments/deliverables achievement and budget management for all AEF projects.

The AEF QSAR follows the same reporting structure that is already used for many Employment Ontario (EO) programs.

WHAT IS A QSAR?

The Quarterly Status Adjustment (QSAR) is a cumulative performance report. It asks transfer payment recipients to identify where they are underperforming, the cause for this and the corrective action they will undertake to get back on track to meet their agreement commitments by the next quarter or by the scheduled project end date.

NEXT STEPS:

The AEF QSAR and a QSAR Question and Answer (Q&A) documents have been posted on the Employment Ontario Partners Gateway (EOPG) for AEF agreement holders to review.

If you have any questions, please contact your Employment and Training Consultant (ETC).
