Assess how programs/services are delivered within a government agency, and consider options in terms of delivery models.
Delivery models in government are rapidly changing
With changes in technology, greater opportunities and challenges, evolving client expectations and increased capabilities of service providers and partners, government agencies are implementing new ways of delivering their programs and services that are more responsive, efficient and effective.
Delivery models may include digital delivery, organizational restructuring, new job designs, centralization/decentralization, shared service delivery, public-private partnerships, single window delivery, partnerships between government agencies, new funding mechanisms, partial or full privatization. Delivery model options are typically examined as part of initiatives to improve service levels, responsiveness and efficiency.

Key steps of a delivery model assessment
Assess how well the current delivery model is working (typically done through interviews, workshops and surveys with clients, stakeholders and in-house staff)
Identify the full range of potential delivery models (often done through benchmark comparisons with similar organizations in other jurisdictions). The tools help to ensure a consistent approach in defining the delivery model options.
Assess the delivery model options based on a clear and agreed upon assessment framework and criteria (these will evolve over the duration of the assessment as more information becomes available)
Develop an implementation plan for the transition to the selected delivery model.
