To operate as a Viable and Exemplary institution, NaCSA Concludes a three-day Management Retreat, Sketches the Picture of the Past, Present and Future.
The National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA) has on Thursday 7th July 2022, ended a three-day management retreat. The essence of the retreat was to undertake a holistic systems, processes and procedures review of the Commission’s management and functional capacities so as to effectively deliver on its broad mandate.
The team of experts were positioned to review critical documents including the yet to be validated and operationalized institutional review report, the 2019-2023 strategic plan, and all documents necessary for the recalibration and repositioning of the Commission into a result -oriented and optimally performing institution; ensuring that plans of interventions are aligned with the country’s Medium Term National Development Plan.
In her opening statement, the Commissioner of NaCSA, Sao-Kpato Hannah Isatta Max-Kyne (PhD) provided further information on the Commission’s mandate and critical provisions of the NaCSA Act of 2019. The Act provided for the establishment of the Commission responsible for the promotion and implementation of community based-sustainable social protection and development programmes…”NaCSA has become a permanent government agency through an Act of Parliament initiated at Cabinet by His Excellency Dr. Julius Maada Bio. This means there is need for the Commission to be restructured to suit the new mandate. We are here today to review the strategic plan, identify key strategic areas to guide the Commission’s interventions and reposition the entity as viable and exemplary for efficient and effective pro-poor service delivery and good project governance.’’ She stated.
The Deputy Commissioner, Jimmy Batilo Songa and Senior Management Team including the Senior Directors and Directors provided strategic leadership in brainstorming the recalibration and repositioning methodology. ‘’The Sussex declarations’’ as termed by the Senior Director of Programmes, Raymond Bob Katta, will serve as the standard principles in optimizing in-house capacity to re-engineer the Commission’s systems, processes and procedures. It will further recalibrate the functional realignment and develop a benchmarking mechanism that will enhance institutional efficiency, programmatic impact and accountability.
