The workshop started at 9:30am prompt with individual silent prayers from members present. Mr Komba, Senior Performance Coordinator, Performance Management Service Directorate (PMSD), started the 3-day Workshop. The essence of the workshop was to acquaint Agencies and Commissions who submitted their PTT, Managerial Matrix and Project tracker to PMSD with a view to signed Performance Contracts with the President, to know exactly what is needed from them and to understand that the Performance Tracking Table (PTT) is result based. Director PMSD, Abdul Rahman Sowa, led the workshop, which was interactive. Participants were encouraged to ask questions in areas where they needed clarifications.
On that note the Chairman for the 3-day Workshop Mr Abdul Rahman Sowa, Director PMSD reiterated the fact that Performance Contract is based on the principle of Result-Based Management – a system that integrates strategy, people, resources, processes and measurement to improve decision-making, transparency and accountability. Going forward, the Performance Contract is not about the President but rather the country and “if people don’t change, changes will change them”. Therefore institutions should not overlook the Performance Contract but rather take it seriously.
