12 January 2015, 10:44
Tana River - The Tana River County Public Service Board plans to subject all the County staff to performance contacts in a bid to improve service delivery.
The board chairman, Adan Berre said the move is aimed at improving the service delivery of the staff to the residents of the County.
“We have embarked on a system that will transform the County and the service delivery in this county, and that should be spearheaded by our staff,” said Berre.
He said from January 15, all departments will be put under a Rapid Result Initiative on five thematic things they would identify, and which they must accomplish within 100 days from the effective date.
Berre said all the departments will have strategic plans and objectives to be accomplished within 100 days.

He however cautioned that those found unable to perform their mandate within the specified period of time will be relieved of their duties.
“This is not to intimidate or scare away any of our County workers but to improve our capabilities,” noted Berre.
He said the board had noted the laxity and lack of commitment by County workers saying they are determined to improve service delivery.
“While we understand there are a lot of challenges such as inadequate office space, shortfall in personnel and inadequate facilities, we should be committed and understand our responsibilities,” he said.
He called on all County staff to observe the public service code of conduct and ethics at the work place, adding that public officers must maintain integrity and loyalty to the County.
The chairman also revealed that the leadership of Tana River County underwent training on performance contracts, urging the County staff to embrace the new system positively.
