Executive Summary

In an effort to promote First Nations' self determination responsibility for the provision of some government services has be delegated to First Nations Bands from the federal Government of Canada. Funding for these services has been transferred to the various Bands through a formal agreement between the two parties thereby establishing a formal accountability relationship. The paper is concerned with building a descriptive model of this relationship. By unpacking and reconstructing the components of the accountability relationship the authors identify incompatibilities between notions of the partnership espoused by both parties (and others) and the elements of the accountability relationship.
