TEMERLOH: Government agencies in Temerloh district will adopt the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) roadmap for more systematic development.
Temerloh MP Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said the programme’s objective at district level was to enhance the delivery system and better serve the public.
He said that GTP would enable all the parties involved to understand their roles and work closely to develop the district.
“Temerloh is the first district to adopt the GTP after it was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak last month.
“Federal agencies in the district will adopt the programme to chart future developments,” he said after chairing a meeting with heads of the Temerloh district office, Temerloh Municipal Council, District Education Office, the police and MACC.
Saifuddin, who is also Deputy Higher Education Minister, said the administration would comprise Key Result Areas (KRAs) in line with the programme at national level.
He said not all six national KRAs would be followed through since Temerloh was considered as a rural district.
“The implementation will focus on fields such as enhancing education, improving the standard of living for low-income earners and enhancing infrastructure.
“Other areas such as crime and public transport may not be emphasised as they are not major issues in the district,” he said.
Officers of the performance delivery and management unit of the Prime Minister’s Department headed by Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jala would be deployed to brief the agencies in stages about the programme, he added.
Saifuddin hoped the programme would be properly co-ordinated and understood by the agencies to ensure its smooth implementation.
The GTP is based on targets set under the six national KRAs namely fighting corruption, reducing crime, improving education, improving the standard of living of the poor, upgrading rural infrastructure and upgrading urban public transport.
