Malaysia’s PEMANDU begins 2-year transition of NTP work to the civil service

Malaysia’s PEMANDU begins 2-year transition of NTP work to the civil service

In a recent press release, it was announced that the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) would commence the final transitional phase of the National Transformation Programme (NTP) work to the civil service over a two-year period.

During the two-year transition, the handover will cover three types of activities based on the level of performance and competency assessment.

Under work category 1, some of the NTP work will be handed over immediately to the civil service without any need for transition. PEMANDU will hand over these activities in full to the civil service on 1 March 2017. Under work category 2, some of the NTP work will be handed over gradually. These activities require support during a two-year transition to allow for capacity building within the civil service so that in the third year, the civil service will be able to perform this work independently without any support. To support work category 2, PEMANDU manpower will reduce its current staff strength from 133 to 45 in 2017 and 30 in 2018. No support is required in 2019.

Under work category 3, even after mainstreaming the work to the civil service, there will still be a need for NTP coordination. To manage this, PEMANDU will hand over this coordination work to the Civil Service Delivery Unit (CSDU) in the Economic Planning Unit (EPU). The intention had always been for PEMANDU to be a small, agile unit responsible for establishing key performance indicators (KPIs), problem solving and overall performance management whilst the respective ministries and agencies of the government would carry out the implementation of the initiatives under the National Transformation Programme (NTP).

Efforts by PEMANDU, the various ministries and agencies have delivered results: Median income for the bottom 40% has experienced a growth from RM1,440 a month in 2009, up to RM2,629 in 2014. Furthermore, Malaysia has surpassed the target of growing the B40 mean monthly income to RM2,300 at 2015, as identified in the 10th Malaysia Plan, ahead of schedule in 2014 where it was recorded at RM2,537.

Private investment growth has greatly strengthened from a CAGR of 5.5% between 2006 and 2010 to a CAGR of 12.1% between 2011 and 2015, now amounting to an estimated 65% of total investment in the country, a significant increase from 55% in 2010.

PEMANDU will continue to work closely with KSN and the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) over the next two years to ensure that the transition is uninterrupted and smooth. The civil service delivery unit will be assuming responsibility for the performance management of the NTP from PEMANDU and ensuring that they are fully institutionalised within the civil service. PEMANDU, currently a unit under the Prime Minister’s Department was established in 2009 with the task of developing the National Transformation Programme and coordinating its implementation.
