‘Sys­tem adapted to suit Jo­hor ad­min­is­tra­tion’

New Straits Times - - News -

JO­HOR BARU: The key per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors (KPI) set for each Jo­hor ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor is de­ter­mined by they them­selves with input from Men­teri Be­sar Datuk Seri Mo­hamed Khaled Nordin.

A book­let, which showed a sum­mary of the evaluation scores from last year, showed that some ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lors had as many as 29 KPIs on their plate, while oth­ers had just 10 KPI items to be ful­filled in a year.

Per­modalan Darul Ta’zim Sdn Bhd, a state gov­ern­ment-linked com­pany, mon­i­tors and tab­u­lates scores of each ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor on a quar­terly ba­sis, using a sys­tem known as INPRES, or Per­for­mance Evaluation Index.

The sys­tem is an ex­panded ver­sion of an evaluation method used by the Per­for­mance Man­age­ment and De­liv­ery Unit (Pe­mandu) at the Fed­eral-level.

A spokesman from Per­modalan Darul Ta’zim said the sys­tem was adapted to suit the Jo­hor ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“One dif­fer­ence at the Jo­hor­level is that eval­u­a­tions were grad­u­ally ex­panded be­yond ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lors. The sys­tem was im­posed on nine state gov­ern­ment-linked com­pa­nies in 2015 and then to de­part­ment heads and ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cers this year.

“The men­teri be­sar wanted the sys­tem to be used on a wider scale in the state ad­min­is­tra­tion,” the spokesman said.

He said each ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor needed to present their list of KPIs to Khaled at the start and end of the year.

“Each ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor de­ter­mines his or her KPIs and ini­tia­tives for evaluation after dis­cussing the mat­ter with the de­part­ments that ex­e­cute the plans, and a list of ini­tia­tives are drawn up to help ful­fil the KPIs.

“This list will be tabled by each ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor to the men­teri be­sar at the start of the year and must have his ap­proval.”

Dur­ing the an­nual Exco Away Day on Tues­day, Khaled said two Jo­hor ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lors had fallen short in their scores and ex­pec­ta­tions for the year-end eval­u­a­tions re­lated to their du­ties.

Seven out of the nine ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lors ob­tained “ex­cel­lent” marks of 86 per cent and above in the year-end scores.
