Local Government Officers In Osun Charged On Improved Performance

coat of armsLocal Government Officers have been admonished to justify the money invested on them by government through various training programmes by improving on their job performance.

The Chairman Local Government Service Commission, Dr. Peter Babalola, gave the word of advice while declaring open a 3 day workshop titled “Budgetary Control, Project Monitoring and Evaluation” held at the Local Government Service Commission’s Multipurpose Hall.

Dr. Babalola noted that the workshop was designed for Directors of Administration and Service, Finance and Budget as well as Due Process Officers, Engineers and Internal Auditors to re-prepare them towards budget implementation, control and discipline, especially now that, the 2014 budget is nearing approval.

He stressed that, budget monitoring should start from conceptualization to completion while report should be made periodically and formally to relevant stakeholders and authorities.

The Commission’s boss made it known that, since the State Governor Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has turned the state to project sites, it is imperative to train relevant personnel who are saddled with the duty of implementing and monitoring the developmental projects.

He stated that, budgets should be seen as a tool of management control, discipline and effective project monitoring and evaluation.

He assured the participants that every positive recommendation and suggestions that, will assist the present administration to achieve the desired goals, will be welcomed and considered.
