Government To Measure Performance With Newly Introduced Balanced Scorecards

Benjamin Kamumanya, the Permanent Secretary minister of Local Government, revealed the government’s new move. He said it will use the balanced scorecard to measure civil servants’ performance this fiscal year.

“It is an instrument to accelerate levels of evaluation, monitoring, output, outcomes and levels of impact,” he said.

He said scorecards help to show whether someone has achieved the targets set for him or not. This means that it will fix things like failure to account for money, paying wrong salary grades, ghost payments among others.

He made these remarks at Hotel Africana in Kampala on Friday, August 26, 2022. This happened during a performance improvement meeting aimed to train CAOs and town clerks on how to balance scorecard works.

Apparently, technical people and heads of departments are needed to implement these government programs. If these are absent, one is only cutting themselves off from the relevant technical arm according to Kamumanya.

“We do not have planners in all the districts but we need plans and reports. Go fill those posts. You need three things including wage. If you have wage, you recruit, but if you do not, tell us and we inform the government,” Kumumanya said.

In separate news earlier reported by NEWSLEXPOINT.com, Ministry of Local Government is set to officially launch Standardized Security Stamps on Friday that will be used by newly elected Local Council Chairpersons 1 and 2 country wide.

The new stamps take effect June when the new office bearers take office however ministry of local government in partnership with local councils will collect old stamps from ex officials.
