J&K to launch officials' assessment programme: Abdullah
Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that a Results-Framework Document (RFD) to assess performance of government departments would be launched later this month in the state.
RFD is an effective assessment and management system aimed at judging the performance and functioning of government departments. Addressing a two days' workshop on RFD, Abdullah said that all government departments would be asked to formulate RFDs for the last quarter of the current year and for next year.
The performance would be judged on the basis of timeline completion of targets, outcomes of schemes, priorities fixed, quality of work, status of benefits of projects accruing to people and other issues. "There should be performance evaluation of bureaucracy and government departments, and RFD will be the right instrument for the same, Abdullah said.
He added that the initiative would provide a mechanism for performance assessment in relation to delivery of service, realisation of targets, completion of schemes in a qualitative manner and the outcomes of work done.
