The Federal Ministry of Transportation has introduced a digital platform known as the performance management system as a new tool for measuring the performance of the staff of the ministry.
Speaking at a town hall meeting and award ceremony organised by the ministry in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo said, “There is a new template for measuring the performance of civil servants known as performance management system and the system will be used in the award selection process going forward.
”It is also important to note that the newly introduced system will soon become fully operational and will provide the parameter for future selections for the awards. At the end of the year instead of having APER form, the new system will be put in place”.
He explained that the system is designed to show staff clearly their performance and it is now left for them to seek ways of improving their contribution.
The Minister noted that despite the ministry’s lean resources, the management has prioritised the provision of a good working environment for its staff.
”We have ensured training and retraining of staff, availability of working tools to motivate staff towards increased productivity and improved service delivery.
”I want to use this medium to encourage staff to be solution providers, and also develop an attitudinal change in fulfilment of the objectives of FCSSIP – 2021 – 2025″ Mu’azu said.
Some staff of the ministry was presented with outstanding performance awards.
