Vihiga CECMs Commit to Deliver

County Executive Committee Members signed performance contracts as a commitment to meeting targets in their respective departments.

The exercise that was overseen by Governor Dr. Wilber Ottichilo saw CECMs commit to delivering on the projects and activities captured in their 2019/20 work plans.

Speaking at the event, Vihiga Governor Dr. Wilber Ottichilo said the performance contracting tool will aid his Government in delivering quality services to Vihiga people. He said CECMs putting pen to paper is a clear indication that his government is committed to making Vihiga a model County in development matters. "I have set structured and workable systems, it is now time to work", said the Governor. " Performance Contacting will enable my Government to meet the targets we intend to achieve in this financial year, I thank my CECMs for for taking cognizant of the importance of performance contracting", he added.

CECM for Public Service, administration and Coordination of County Affairs Paul Mbuni said the exercise will enable the County Government to do an analysis of where it is at the moment and where it is supposed to be in the future.

Apart from being a legal requirement, performance contracting will enable Vihiga County Government to come up with measures to address human resource issues like employee appraisals, promotion criteria, motivation among others.

There will be a mid year evaluation in December that will inform decisions to adjust some strategies to conform to the existing situations.

Governor Ottichilo said the County is working on modalities of having revenue collection automated to ease the whole exercise and also beef up collection.

The speaker assured the people of Vihiga County that both wings, The Executive and The Assembly, are working together for the sake of bringing up development in the county. She emphasised that good governance can be achieved by responsible leadership and it is the reason they have chosen to work together.
