BUJUMBURA July 4th (ABP) – The action plans of the services under the supervision of the Ministry of National Solidarity, Social Affairs, Human Rights and Gender for the year 2019-2020 were successfully carried out, according to the Minister responsible, Mrs. Imelde Sabushimike.
The Minister who spoke on Friday in Bujumbura City during a meeting to assess the activities of the ministry said that the government’s action plan in that sector was carried out at a rate of 98.9%, after provisional data. The ministry’s internal action plan was completed at a rate of 99.1%. That of the CDFC (Center for Family and Community Development) is 97.9%.
Minister Sabushimike welcomed the results, adding that this was made possible by the hard-working men and women of her ministry.
Last year’s execution of the government’s action plan was evaluated at 98.9%, a year ago, on July 4, 2019. In 2017, the minister won first place with a score of 100 %. For the year 2018, the ministry was rated more than 80%. The factors that contributed to reaching that score for the activities planned during the 2018-2019 fiscal year include the approach to quarterly operational action plans, the dynamism of the staff and the collaboration between the employees and their the use of institutional and individual performance contracts, the use of periodic, quarterly, semi-annual and annual evaluations.
However, some have not been assessed due to exceptional circumstances, namely the Covid-19 pandemic, said Mr. Salvator Ndayegamiye, planning, monitoring and evaluation officer.
For some services, budget data is not included in the assessment that part of their budget was used to help the victims of the Gatumba inundations in Bujumbura province. The annual action plan for the year just started 2020-2021 and its annual operational plan for the 1st quarter 2020-2021 of each service is expected no later than July 10, 2020, said Mr. Ndayegamiye.
