He said in the capital yesterday – when various Permanent Secretaries signed Performance Agreements (PAs) – that they will report to him on the progress they have personally made, as well as on the results achieved by their institutions.

They will also be expected to deliver a report at the end of this year.

Giving a brief background on the implementation of the PMS in the public service, Kapofi said he will individually with the Permanent Secretaries to discuss their performance, including challenges they have faced, and identify how best to resolve those issues and bring performances back on track.

Kapofi explained that following the abolition of the appraisal system for the public service under the Wages and Salaries’ Commission (WASCOM) system, Government designed and developed a comprehensive PMS.

The aim of the PMS is to improve public service performance at organisational and individual levels.
