The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has emerged as top performer in business efficiency and transparency in Federal Government’s ranking of ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) for the 2022.
Announcing this in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, the head of Corporate Communication, Esueme Dan-Kikile, said the latest result is reminiscent of the Board’s 81.46 percent score in Ease of Doing Business, which placed it top of all other MDAs for the period of January – June 2022.
He said that in the Executive Order 001 (EO1) compliance report released in Abuja by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), the NCDMB achieved a score of 81.11 percent to beat 52 other MDAs captured in the evaluative ranking.
He said that when it was issued on May 18, 2017 by President Muhammadu Buhari, the EO1 on the Promotion of Transparency and Efficiency in the business environment seeks to facilitate entrenchment of policies and practices that will foster an environment conducive to business, particularly start-ups, by eliminating bottlenecks.
He further explained that the PEBEC report revealed that an “MDA’s EOI overall performance is a combination of scores on the Efficiency and Transparency measures weighted at 70 percent and 30 percent of the overall score respectively.
“The top performing MDAs differentiate themselves by achieving a balanced performance on both the Efficiency and Transparency scales. Under Efficiency, the agency’s adherence to its service delivery timelines is key.
“For transparency, the chief consideration is existence and functionality of websites, as well as availability of detailed information on timelines, costs, statutory requirements and customer service contact channels.
“In combination, these will eliminate abuses in the system, including rent-seeking activities. PEBEC has been consistent in publishing the EO1 Compliance Report since 2011 from monthly reports submitted by MDAs.
“This latest award follows NCDMB’s emergence as a Level five Platinum Level organisation in a summary report of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) Self-assessment Tool (SAT) released in January, a rating which translates into exceptional performance with a performance level of 90.5 percent.
