Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) says it is ready to partner with the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) towards enhanced innovation in service delivery to depositors and other groups.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, NDIC, Bello Hassan stated this while receiving the Director-General of the Bureau, Dasuki Ibrahim Arabi and his management team in his office in Abuja.
Hassan said the commitment of the Corporation to effective service delivery informed the Board’s swift approval for the establishment of an Efficiency and Innovation Unit in the Strategy Development Department in compliance with the directive of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.
The Corporation’s support for external assessment of its performance, he said, has convinced that the Self- Assessment Tool (SAT) developed by the bureau would complement the Corporation’s existing mechanism for assessing the effective discharge of its mandate.
The Managing Director said the SAT would assist in achieving the Federal Government’s objectives of significantly strengthening governance and accountability in service delivery to the citizenry.
In his statement, Arabi explained that the IT-based self-assessment tool of the bureau was designed to coordinate, monitor and evaluate the implementation of reforms as well as disseminate information on all aspects of public service, amongst other objectives.
The BPSR boss expressed optimism in the NDIC implementing the bureau’s self-assessment processes and its commitment towards putting innovation as a top priority to promote excellence in service delivery.
He said the BPSR would continue to collaborate with the NDIC as well as other government agencies in assessing their performance to ensure optimal discharge of their mandate to the populace.
