Frequently Asked Questions

Who Administers the Evaluation(s)?

Typically, the staff person responsible for governance at your organization will act as the administrator in partnership with the Governance Committee or Board Chair.

Who Takes Part in the Evaluation(s)?

This depends on the organization and the evaluation being conducted.  Some organizations include the management team in the evaluation process.  For board and board chair evaluations, board and management team members normally take part in these surveys.  Committee and committee chair evaluations are usually completed by the committee members and any staff members that attend or otherwise have full line of sight to committee meetings and performance.  Board members complete self and peer evaluations of individual directors.

Can We Customize the Questionnaires?

Yes and no!  The core, best practice, research-based questions are not intended to be varied and will provide robust, comprehensive results and scorecards for your use.  Maintaining consistency in these questions allows Governance Solutions to provide your organization with peer comparators, adding better objectivity and context to your results.  You are welcome to add a few further questions tailored to your own situation and issues.

Is Our Information Confidential and Secure?

Yes.  All data is reported in aggregate and is kept confidential.  Even your administrator is not able to view individual results.  All of our online products subscribe to the highest levels of security.  All data is housed on Canadian servers.

What Evaluations Should We Conduct?

Our Evaluation Solution allows your organization to choose which evaluations to conduct – the board as a whole, the Board Chair, the Board Committees, the Committee Chairs, Individual Directors either self and/or peer – you make the choice and you decide who takes part.

Is There Support if I Have a Problem?

Yes.  Your administrator should be able to handle any routine technical problems you may encounter, like providing login and password information, how to complete a survey, timelines for completion, etc.  For those times when support is needed beyond the routine, Governance Solutions can be reached at 1-888-698-3971 between the hours of 9:00 and 5:00 EST or by email anytime at support@governancesolutions.ca

When Do We Get to See the Results?

This is a decision each organization makes.  Results are provided to the administrator by Governance Solutions once all respondents have completed their surveys.  This occurs immediately after the administrator closes the evaluation with a simple click of a button.  The administrator will provide reports to respondents based on your organization’s evaluation workplan.  For example, some organizations have a Governance Committee review reports before distributing them to others.    

Who Gets to See the Results?

Each organization makes this decision based on its board and circumstances.  Typically, the Governance Committee sees all of the reports with the exception of the individual director reports.  Board members see the board and committee reports, the board chair sees the committee chair and individual director reports, and the Governance Committee Chair sees the Board Chair’s report.  Some boards share the Board and Committee reports with the management team members who took part in the survey, while others choose not to. 

Can We Have a Governance Solutions Consultant Give Us Recommendations Based on our Results?

Yes, at an additional cost.  Customized recommendations and governance action plans are available and affordable.  Contact us directly for a quote.
