Bureaucrats will not rate ministers: PMO
New Delhi: The Prime Minister`s Office (PMO) Tuesday denied that the performance of ministers would be judged by bureaucrats.
"It is not factually correct to say that serving officers will evaluate the performance of the ministers," the PMO said in a statement. "The Prime Minister`s order is clear that the entire process has to be driven by the ministers."
The clarification followed media reports that the government had developed a Performance Monitoring System (PMES) under which the performance of ministers "would be reported by bureaucrats".
"It is also not true that a minister and secretary are jointly required to sign the Results-Framework Document (RFD)," the statement said.
"The PM`s order does not have any such requirement. The minister has the prerogative and the final authority to decide on the priorities and deliverables for the concerned department at the beginning of the year.
"Once the priorities, direction and deliverables are decided by the minister, it is the responsibility of the department to achieve these results. The PMES makes this practice more systematic and transparent."
