PUTRAJAYA: Universities and vice-chancellors will have to be on their toes as they will be monitored closely soon.
According to Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, performance is a must and the ministry would prepare its own key performance indicators (KPIs).
“Implementing KPIs will provide easy indication for the ministry to analyse how universities and their vice-chancellors have fared,” he said at the ministry’s appreciation ceremony.
“The data can also serve as input for further improvement.
“I will elaborate more during the ministry’s monthly meeting that will take place in the coming fortnight. Anyway, the universities were already told to come out with their KPIs last year,” said Khaled.
The announcement is in accordance with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s instruction for ministries to prepare their KPIs within a month.
Present with Khaled were his two deputies, Dr Hou Kok Chong and Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.
When asked how it felt to be the only Umno minister who retained his Cabinet post, Khaled chose to downplay the matter.
“I think that it is purely coincidental and there is nothing to it,” he said.
