Performance Contracting Department
Short Term Consultancy
To Develop Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Strategy and to Undertake Publicity Campaign on Implementation of Citizens Service Delivery Charter
Background
The GOK has been implementing public sector reforms geared towards regulating the manner, propriety and effectiveness of the services offered by public institutions. This is in recognition that the quality of these services has significant impact on and contributes to socio-economic development and welfare of the citizens.
The broad objective of public sector reforms is to increase customer satisfaction with public services, ensure accountability for utilization of public resources and to facilitate creation of competitive advantage for the country.
This has been achieved largely through introduction of performance contracting system as the national public sector management accountability framework.
This has been achieved through introduction of performance contracting system as the management accountability framework for public service. Performance contracts help to improve service delivery to the public by ensuring that top-level managers are accountable for results, and in turn hold those below them accountable. They also assist in reversing the decline in efficiency and ensuring that resources are focused on attainment of the key national policy priorities of the Government.
Performance contracts are designed to address all management perspectives including financial stewardship, customer satisfaction, institutional capacity as well as operations and procedures.
Customer satisfaction is a key component in service delivery perspective of a performance contract. To address this perspective, all public institutions on performance contract have developed citizens’ service delivery charters.
The citizen’s service delivery charter is a statement of quality by an institution to its customers on the levels of services they should expect from that institution. It includes information on the duration the service is expected to take, the requirements before the service is rendered and the cost of the service. It also stipulates procedure to be followed in the event services are not commensurate with the service standards indicated in the charters.

1.    Undertake development of IEC strategy on performance contracting system;
2.    Oversee the development of publicity materials to educate the public on service charters and performance contracts; and
