ENB finds ways to monitor plans

The National, Friday, May 6, 2011

THE East New Britain provincial administration will establish a data monitoring system to track implementation of its strategic development plan and its implementing vehicle, the corporate plan.
Administrator Akuila Tubal highlighted this last Friday during the launching of the 10-year provincial strategic development plan and the provincial corporate plan at the Kokopo Secondary School hall.
He said the development plan alone would require K2.5 billion and he expected that to increase the revenue base by 2021 to K1.6 billion per year.
Tubal said this could be done through an effective monitoring framework, including a data system.
Tubal said the administration would be undertaking further consultation as part of the rollout of the development plan.
He said the rollout was critical to the effective implementation of the plan.
He challenged public servants to organise themselves in the next 10 years.
“All divisional heads, district administrators and LLG managers are required to strategically manage their staff in order that the vision, mission and strategies were adequately responded to by way of sector planning and annual budgeting,” he said.
“The plans will not only be implemented by the provincial administration only but by all stakeholders, including the private sector under the public-private partnership policy framework.”
He said the administration recognised the critical role of the private sector in this process and would be engaging with them through the ENB Chamber of Commerce.
Tubal expressed confidence the provincial government would support the administration to deliver these plans.
Department of Provincial Local Level Government Affairs director capacity building, Dickson Guina said the launch of plans was yet another milestone reached for the province.
