President Emmerson Mnangagwa is this week expected to reveal how Cabinet ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of Government agencies and departments performed under contracts they signed last year.
Mnangagwa will on Thursday announce the government officials’ performances last year when they sign this year’s contracts on the same day.
This year’s performance contracts signing ceremony would be broadcast live on national television on 16 March according to a statement released by the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC). Part of the statement reads:
Guided by the nation’s (economic) blueprint, NDS1, the progress of each leader has been tracked and these results will be announced, with clear indications of those who exceeded their targets and those who did not.
To foster a high-performance culture across the entire public sector, the Government of Zimbabwe, will on March 16, 2023, sign performance contracts under the Integrated Results-Based Management System: with all Cabinet ministers, all permanent secretaries, all CEOs of local authorities and all CEOs of State-owned enterprises.
Mnangagwa introduced performance-based contracts as a way of fostering a high-performance culture among office bearers.
OPC said the performance contracts will all be evaluated on delivery, efficacy, management and implementation.
