PROTOCOLS

It is my pleasure to welcome you all to this very important Ministerial retreat on the implementation of a modern Performance Management System (PMS) as a tool for appraising employee performance and the delivery of institutional and presidential mandates in the Federal Public Service.  The new PMS is a bold step to institutionalize the principle of service, output and outcome-oriented operations in Ministries, Extra-Ministerial Departments and Agencies (MDAs) by creating systems and processes that support delivery of services in a more efficient and effective manner. The PMS provides a systematic process of planning work, setting targets, providing support to employees and measuring results. It also provides the framework for continuous tracking of employees’ performance in a manner that is consistent and measurable, for developing and improving their capacities to perform on their jobs and for motivating them for increased productivity.

2. As we are all aware, the new PMS is expected to replace the Annual Performance Evaluation Report System (APER) which is the appraisal mechanism in the Public Service over the last four decades.  Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, institutionalization of a new performance management system is at the heart of the on-going reform initiatives and culture re-orientation in the Public Service. This is to ensure appropriate linkage of key government tools towards the attainment of national development goals, and to entrench an accountability driven, result oriented, high performance and merit-based system as well as fairness and transparency in employee performance evaluation and management in the Public Service. I am pleased to inform you that the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and indeed all the Agencies in the Sector are committed to the successful implementation of the PMS and other reforms activities towards bequeathing to the nation, a world class Public Service that is repositioned to deliver efficient services as the backbone of the Government.

3. I am glad to inform you that a number of critical documents, which are essential to successful implementation of the Performance Management System service wide have all been put in place by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation. Among these are the PMS Policy, PMS Implementation Guidelines and Frameworks. These documents are to assist us to effectively and successfully implement this all important presidential deliverable. I am bold to say that we are familiar with these document which are very robust tools for the deployment of the new appraisal system.

4. We are gathered here today as critical stakeholders in the Housing and Urban Development Sector to further discuss and understand the new system and our roles for a successful roll out, implementation and institutionalization of the new appraisal system in the Federal Public Service

5. I want to appreciate the officers from the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Heads of Agencies and Directors here present, who have taken time out of their very busy schedules to attend this retreat.  It is our belief that our collective efforts in supporting the process of institutionalization of the new appraisal system will put the Service on a path of sustainable and improved service delivery to the Nigerian citizens.

6. Once again, I welcome you all and wish us all fruitful deliberations.
