Jammu, Mar 12: Minister for Finance, Abdul Rahim Rather today called for putting in place a scientific method for evaluation of efficiency and accountability through measurable outputs and outcomes in various departments. The minister added that fiscal discipline and budget management should be the guiding principle in this regard.
Speaking at a meeting of officers of Finance Department in the Civil Secretariat, Jammu this afternoon, convened in connection with the roll out of Results Framework Document (RFD) of Finance Department, Rather, according to an official statement said that resources generation was imperative to give fillip to development and growth of the state on sustained basis and the RFD was an effective tool to fulfil these objectives.
He said that efficient management of state’s fiscal resources, coupled with their judicious allocation and expenditure was key to make the state financially self-reliant.
He said the RFD is a new concept of performance evaluation to guide the officers at the helm of affairs to achieve proficiency in self determined targets and the achievements thereof.
Principal Secretary to CM and Principal Secretary Finance B B Vyas in his power point presentation said that the Results Framework Document is a new scientific and mathematical concept to bring in more accountability, efficiency and objectivity in the functioning of various departments, which will be launched in the State with effect from the last quarter of the current financial year.
He also gave a conceptual background about the RFD and informed that the document is a sort of MoU between the Minister and the Secretary of the Department.
Vyas briefed the meeting about the utility and objective of RFD and said it is a vision to employ resources for the development and growth of the state in a framework of set targets and measurable deliverables.
The document provides an important linkage between the political and executive set up of government functioning with the collective aim of bringing out measurable outputs and outcomes against the targets mutually agreed upon for achieving in the ensuing year.
He said the RFD for the Finance Department will be loaded on website on 15 March, so that other departments and the general public understands this unique system of efficiency measurement and develops a culture for it.
