Ryder, Mr D to ask the Minister of Public Works
(1) What number of heads of departments of his department completed performance assessments in the (a) 2015-16, (b) 2016-17 and (c) 2017-18 financial years? (2) What are the reasons for any heads of departments not completing performance assessments in each specified financial year?
(1) It is assumed that the Honourable Member, when asking about heads of departments in the Department of Public Works that reference is actually made to the Director General, Deputy Directors-General and Chief Directors, who head various business units in the Department of Public Works. In this respect, the details are as follows:
(a) 2015-16 financial year: 34 heads of departments completed performance assessments.
(b) 2016-17 financial year: 30 heads of departments completed performance assessments.
(c) 2017-18 financial year: 34 heads of departments completed performance assessments.
(2) In a few cases wherein non-compliance occurred by managers in the respective financial years, the reasons have mainly centred around the submission of performance assessments after the stipulated deadlines. As a result, the Department has instituted action and excluded the affected officials from any performance incentives linked to their positions.
