ELEVEN permanent secretaries have signed their performance agreement that focuses on the framework set out in ministerial annual corporate plans.
Out of the 21 permanent secretaries, 11 signed the agreement with Public Service Commission chairman, Josefa Serulagilagi at the PSC headquarters yesterday.
Mr Serulagilagi said the agreement also focused on how activities contributed to the objectives of each ministerial portfolio during the permanent secretary's term in office.
He said the most important aspect of the annual corporate plans was that each plan is directly linked to the People's Charter.
"It guides the Government's direction in pursuance of developmental activities and provision of a whole range of social and economic services," Mr Serulagilagi said.
"These accountabilities are aimed at prioritising the delivery and quality of public goods and services and ensures that public funds and resources are used in an accountable, transparent and efficient manner."
The PSC reviews the performance of each permanent secretary at the end of every year and the signing is an annual event that takes place in the first quarter of the new year.
Permanent secretaries who signed the agreement were Parmesh Chand, Taina Tagicakibau, Jale Fotofili, Filimone Waqabaca, Solo Mara, Pita Wise, Dr Brij Lal, Cama Tuiloma, Manasa Vaniqi, Elizabeth Powell and Dr Sala Saketa.
