STAKEHOLDERS IN THE GOVERNANCE SECTOR OF THE PRP HOLD WORKSHOP ON THE WAY FORWARD
Date: 2017-05-15

Stakeholders of the Governance Sector under the President Recovery Priority (PRP) Delivery Programme on Wednesday 10th May 2017, converged to discuss the transition plan of President Recovery Priorities (PRPs) involving the President Delivery Team (PDT) and the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the governance sector.

Speaking at the workshop, in the conference hall of Maritime Building, Government Warf, Freetown; the Commissioner, ACC Ady Macauley Esq., lauded the efforts of the Heads of MDAs and the Head of PDT governance team, Jeannette Eno.

Commissioner Macauley thanked the PDT for making MDAs accountable to the President and the people of this country within a strict weekly timeframe. When I took up office a year ago, the Pay No Bribe (PNB) campaign was my first assignment, and I braced myself to give out the best, Mr. Macauley averred. 'The PDT have been on our toes to ensure timely reporting’ Commissioner added.

He furthered, availability of data on our activities as a country has been a very big challenge but, PDT has set the pace for us to take off from that challenge. Commissioner stated that, the PDT has developed ultramodern tools to track progress on PNB and other activities in MDAs. He emphasized the need to maintain and customise those tools. Mr. Macauley also said that, the PNB has equipped him to face any critic because of the readily available data to show the levels of bribery by different sectors.

In her statement, Governance Sector Coordinator, PDT Jeannette Eno expressed profound gratitude to the Commissioner and his staff for the high levels of cooperation and commitment in progressively working with the PDT from planning to implementation of PNB.

The PDT has been working very closely with the ACC from planning to implementation stage of the PNB project. Several meetings/workshops with PDT enhanced knowledge transfer in the areas of developing tools on activity tracking and the use of basic computer skills to ensure effective monitoring of the project. Institutional coordination for effective delivery through efficient methods such as Deep Dives, Initiative Working Groups, District Sector meetings and District Delivery Forums were immensely useful in the PNB delivery process. Weekly data collection and reporting of progress on PNB by the Commissioner to the President through a programme called ‘spotlight’ presentation was also facilitated by the PDT.

The PNB platform is funded by UK Aid and GoSL, with Coffey International providing technical support to the ACC and GoSL in the implementation of the project.

The 10 to 24 months mandate of the PDT in driving the process of the PRPs will end 30th June 2017.

The engagement brought together representatives of MDAs including, Mr. Abu Bangura, General Manager, Sierra Leone Port Authority (SLPA), Mr Mohamed Sesay, Director Inspectorate Division Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) and Dr. Sarian Kamara, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS), who made meaningful contributions.
