Malacañang will be conducting periodically a review of the performance of Cabinet officials to make sure the commitments made in a year are followed and set targets are achieved.
“It’s more for tracking the work done by each and every Cabinet secretary,” said Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda.
Each Cabinet secretary is directed to submit to the Office of the President its accomplishment report every quarter, which will be then reviewed against the program targets for that period.
Tasked to supervise the performance audit of the Cabinet are Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr., Cabinet Secretary Rene Almendras and Budget and Management Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad.
Abad earlier proposed for a performance contract scheme of Cabinet officials.
He recognized that if the performance of government employees are periodically reviewed, so too must the performance of the Cabinet members. PNA
