ITANAGAR, Nov 10: A Memorandum of Understanding was signed today for implementation of Chief Minister’s Dashboard to monitor Key Performance Indicators (KPI) of various departments online through a single-fit window.
Director, IT & C, Neelam Yapin Tana signed the MoU on behalf of the state government while for Ernst & Young (EY), consultant company was represented by its Engagement Partner Prakash Jayaram.
The new Dashboard will be an automated centralized web based application for the state government to aid the process of monitoring and execution of all centrally sponsored schemes as well as state government flagship programmes. Performance status of each department in their concerned schemes and projects will be updated constantly from every district that will enable the highest offices of the state government to monitor and facilitate timely execution.
To begin with, the Chief Minister Pema Khandu suggested taking in few select departments that are implementing important flagship programs of the central and state governments. Later, each and every department will be incorporated in the dashboard and also be opened to public.
“It will bring in transparency and better accountability which will enable effective decision making in quicker time period. It will account for true reflections – what is shown and what is actually happening.
This will fast track development and help us immensely define ourselves as one of the fast-developing states in the country,” Chief Minister said.
Expressing optimism that the Dashboard will build a mechanism to trace the reasons for delay of projects, Khandu suggested it should also display real-time information on the status of various projects and give a quick and graphical representation of the organizational data that would facilitate quick decisions at all levels.
Chief Minister’s Dashboard is expected to be functional in a six-month’s time.
“This new initiative will aid in performance measurement and provide updates on status and challenges of ongoing projects. This will be a path breaking initiative in governance as everything will be in public domain,” he added.
EY’s Core Delivery Team headed by Programme Manager Nimish Gupta will work with the government and the NIC to give a concrete shape to the Dashboard and make it functional.
