Head of Service Briefed on the Independent Mid-year Review of the 2016 PMCs

Consultants commissioned to independently conduct a mid-year review on the 2016 Performance Management Contract (PMC) signed by Regional and District Co-ordinating Directors were at the Local Government Service Secretariat on the 7th of November, 2016 to brief the Head of Service, Dr Callistus Mahama on the outcome of the exercise. Present at the meeting were the Chief Director, Mr. Joseph M. Dasanah and Directors of LGSS.
The briefs by each of the consultants consisted of evidence examined to establish the true status of on achievements by RCDs and DCDs under the Key Performance Areas (KPAs) for the first half of the year. Preliminary results of the exercise showed a general satisfactory performance by all RCCs and MMDAs.
Other issues reported include; non functionality of RCCs and MMDAs websites due to internet connectivity challenges from National Information Technology Agency (NITA); presentation of HR reports without analysis; non-functionality of substructures; need for restructuring and management of records offices of RCCs and MMDAs; and the non-issuance of fire safety certificates by the Ghana National Fire Service for the buildings of RCCs and MMDAs.
The mid-year review is expected to provide RCDs and DCDs an opportunity to reflect on their priorities and targets based on observations from the exercise and fashion out appropriate strategies to address the challenges for the second half of the year.
The Head of Service thanked the consultants for their efforts and indicated that LGSS will await submission of their final reports for necessary action.
