The Cabinet has mandated Ministries of Post & Telecommunications, Finance, Youth & Sports, Education, Defense and State for Presidential Affairs to work closely with the Director General of the Cabinet with a view of assessing and providing general direction for the implementation of the Cabinet Management System recently proposed during a Special Session of Cabinet.
The Liberia Telecommunications Company or LIBTELCO will examine the necessary technical details in terms of the way forward, and Executive Mansion release says.
LIBTELCO will provide technical support for the implementation of the system and a formal report on the system’s implementation will be submitted at a subsequent Cabinet sitting.
The Cabinet took the decision over the weekend when the full Cabinet met in its Special Session.
The proposed system will enhance the Cabinet decision-making, promote efficiency in government, enable Cabinet members to collaborate in a borderless community-centric digital workplace, and establish a world-class virtual data center that uses cloud computing technologies to deliver a fully integrated robust and secure Program/Project Management system.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet has commended the Executive Director of the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC), Mr. DorborJallah, for the level of innovation and vibrancy that would bring efficiency and effectiveness aimed at prompt delivery of government-inspired priority projects.
The Cabinet also mandated Mr. Jallah to review the existing PPCC Law for possible amendment since some of its provisions run contrary to existing realities in light of the unhindered functions and operations of government.
Earlier, the PPCC through its Executive Director made a presentation intended to update the Cabinet on PPCC initiatives to increase efficiency in Government.
It also intends to enhance efficiency in public procurement, increase participation of businesses and companies in public tenders and to facilitate the implementation of the Small Business Act legislated to promote the growth of Liberian-owned businesses.
Finally, it intends to formalize the informal sector of the economy and improve tax compliance and revenue generation.
