Department of Policy harps on importance of effective reporting

2nd Sep, 2019 | By Kabiru Musa and Odugbo Sarah | ||

To continue to ensure the Department of Policy, Planning, Research and Statistics, under the Education Secretariat, delivers on its mandate, the Director, Dr Sani Mohammed Ladan has stressed on the need for prompt reporting of education activities, plans and programmes of the various agencies, boards and departments under the Secretariat.

Speaking with the various heads of units of the Monitoring and Evaluation Department, the Director said prompt submission of reports was necessary for effective and efficient planning and better implementation of set goals. Dr Ladan noted that the way reports were written and submitted revealed that there were still much to be put in place in order to improve the process for quality and functional service delivery. He said the meeting had become imperative for the Department to intimate the officers concerned and discuss modalities of solving the current challenges faced by the FCTA Boards and Departments of the Education Secretariat .

Presenting their individual papers on the workable ways to better reporting and prompt submission, Mr Oyetola Steven, Deputy Director, EMIS & R and Mrs Binta Moze, Assistant Director, Monitoring respectively in the Department of Policy, Planning, Research and Statistics emphasized on the template for monitoring and tracking the implementation of Strategic Education Sector Operation Plan (SESOP) which according to him needs details of numbers of the type of activities carried out among the ones earlier planned.

They asserted that regular reporting helped in updating information and developing of future plans for the Education sector in FCT while prompt reporting prevented cases of data gap when stakeholders requested such information from the Education Secretariat. The highlight of the meeting was the interactive session on factors inhibiting regular and prompt reporting and submission of reports which included delay in the release of funds which often affected the implementation of Strategic Education Sector Operation Plan (SESOP) activities and the need to streamline the activities carried out by the Boards and Departments for proper reporting with focus on training among others.

In response, the participants numbering twenty one from the various Boards and Departments of the Education Secretariat said it was a welcome development which would help them work as a team to be able to plan adequately as well as giving room for proper coordination of information. They also commended the Director of the Department for his visionary leadership.
