MMDAs Ordered To Strenghten Project Monitoring Systems

Ineffective project monitoring and supervision by the metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies (MMDAs) has become a huge drawback to efforts at ensuring quality and value for money.


Mr. Kofi Dwomor-Asubonteng, the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Director, said tackling this should be made an urgent priority.

The assemblies should adequately equip their project monitoring teams with the required resources to closely follow every stage of construction to make sure that the right things were done.

He said the situation where the teams lacked vehicles and other vital logistics must change.

Mr. Dwomor-Asubonteng was speaking at two-day review workshop held in Kumasi to review the performance – the progress they were making with their medium-term development plan.

It provided the platform to share knowledge and discuss ways to effectively address challenges to the smooth implementation of the plan.

The programme was organized by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) with support from the European Union.

The Coordinating Director asked that the assemblies did everything to complete projects started to transform the living conditions of the people.

He called for regular meeting by the heads of the decentralized departments to keep track of development projects.

Mr. Joseph Donkor, the Regional Economic Planning Officer, asked the MMDAs to focus on proper planning and effective project implementation to bring progress to the communities.

Mr. Asokwa Sarpong, the Regional Principal Planning Officer, suggested to the assemblies to find innovative ways of boosting internally-generated funds.
