The size and scale of our transformation programme requires that each one of the EPPs has clear accountability for ownership.
Each of the 12 NKEA areas has robust governance structures in place to ensure that active monitoring and reporting of progress takes place across the entire programme.
While specific governance details may differ slightly across NKEAs, there are two common structural elements.
"First, the EPPs will have single point accountability"
In most cases, a natural owner from the private sector plays the role of 'EPP owner', except in cases where public sector ownership is more appropriate. Each EPP owner will be held accountable for agreed milestones.
"Secondly, there will be common governance structures across NKEAs"
Each NKEA ultimately reports to the Prime Minister. A Steering Committee that oversees the success of overall GNI and job targets for each NKEA and works with EPP owners to ensure project milestones are met. The Steering Committee is chaired by the relevant Lead Minister who bears accountability for meeting these targets as they will be translated into KPIs for each Minister. The Steering Committee typically includes senior representatives from both the Government and private sector. EPP owners are tasked with executing the projects, consulting and informing the respective NKEA teams within PEMANDU if issues arise and reporting progress to the Steering Committees.
