The inaugural EXCO meeting was held after the commissioners and special advisers were sworn in.
The governor said, “We must advocate transparency and uphold accountability in all we do in our respective portfolios. In enthroning a high-performance culture, an organisational performance scorecard has been developed for each ministry.
“The scorecard will be deployed in tracking key performance targets and deliverables of each Ministry and reports will be demanded on a quarterly basis. A formal assessment of performance targets and results achieved by each ministry shall be conducted. These shall form the basis of further review and linkages to other key human resource processes,” he said.
