Recipients need to submit work plan, says secretary


Recipients and implementing agencies of the 2020 Capital Investment Budget need to submit their work plans and cash flow to the Department of National Planning and Monitoring, says secretary Koney Samuel.
They include heads of department, State-owned companies and provincial administrators.
It is part of the due diligence process of budgeting based on their 2020 capital budget appropriation.
“Late submissions of work plans and cash flows may result in further delays in expediting the release of funds in a timely manner,” he said.
“And failure to submit the work plans and cash flow will result in zero funding released.”
Meanwhile, about 200 staff of the department were given Bibles on Thursday to encourage them to seek God for guidance.
Seventh-day Adventist church pastor Tony Kemo, who conducted a dedication service at the department, urged the staff members to trust in God “with all their heart and not to rely on their own understanding”.
Samuel reminded them to understand the expectation on the department by the Government and the people.
“We are public servants, we are here to serve the nation. The impact that we create very much depend on the kind of people that we have in this department,” he said.
“We must be disciplined, take ownership of our jobs because we are accountable to the Government, to the people and most importantly to God.”
