‘System adapted to suit Johor administration’
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.
