Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Greater Accra region have been tasked.

by Regional Minister Henry Quartey to strictly enforce adherence to the 2024 Performance Contract.

The Local Government Service implemented a performance management system, including the Performance Contract, to boost.

productivity and improve performance in accordance with the Local Governance Act, 2016 (Act 936).

Additionally, it gives the metropolitan, municipal, and district assemblies (MMDAs) and the Greater Accra Regional.

Coordinating Council (RCC) a way to assess their own performance and establish new goals that.

correspond to the government's priorities for completing core service commitments.

Yesterday, 28 MMDCEs and their Coordinating Directors signed the Performance Contract with the RCC during.

a signing ceremony held in Accra.


Additionally, the regional minister signed on behalf of four assemblies whose chief executive nominations had.

been overturned by President Akufo-Addo over the weekend.

"The President has nominated certain MMDCEs to take their place and revoked the appointment of.

some of them.

"
To make sure the nominees are verified, we'll be checking up with them," he said.


In order to improve the reputation of their particular assemblies, Mr.

Quartey challenged the MMDCEs to demonstrate commitment and attention towards attaining the Performance Contract's key.

KPIs.

Having statutory meetings, filing reports, and increasing revenue were among the critical metrics.


"The majority of the indicators are well-known to be routine actions, like filing reports on.

time, attending statutory meetings, and increasing revenue, among other things.

"
Accordingly, he said, "it will not be acceptable for any assembly to receive a citation.

for non-performance or non-compliance.

"
A significant step in accomplishing the region's development objectives, according to the regional minister, was.

the signing of the Performance Contract.

According to him, it acted as a road map, giving their efforts a clear direction.

and defining goals, targets, and tactics to enhance people's lives and guarantee sustainable growth.


"This Performance Contract is more than just a written agreement; it is a serious commitment.

to the people that we will make every effort to meet their needs and fulfill.

their dreams," he declared.


He informed the MMDCEs that the evaluation of the 2023 contract will shortly begin and.

asked them to prepare for the exercise.


According to Mr.

Quartey, four assemblies in the area were named among the top 10 performing MMDAs in.

the country, while the Greater Accra RCC came in second in the 2022 Performance Contract.

evaluation of RCCs.

Despite this, one district was in the bottom ten.


Although this accomplishment is admirable, I think it should also be reflected in the lives.

of our people," he stated.

"With regard to that, the RCC would be conducting a pre-assessment of the contract as.

part of its regular quarterly monitoring," he stated.

Mr.

Quartey continued, saying that the RCC would keep up its efforts to make sure the.

assemblies met their goals and would also keep an eye on how the contracts of.

the several MMDAs in the area were being carried out.

"He said we all need to make sure the region always does well in the end-of-year assessment.

 "
The MMDCEs promised to make plans and goals for department leaders to follow the 2024 contracts.
