UGBS Practitioner Lecture Series - A look into a speech delivered by Dr. Raymond Atuguba
LADA Group | News UGBS Practitioner Lecture Series - A look into a speech delivered by Dr. Raymond Atuguba UGBS Practitioner Lecture Series - A look into a speech delivered by Dr. Raymond Atuguba The University of Ghana Business School during its first edition of the Practitioner Lecture Series which took place at the Graduate Campus of the U.G.B.S had its main speaker Dr. Raymond Atuguba delivering a speech with focus on Politics, Policymaking, and Evaluation in Ghana by examining the DELIVER programme. Dr. Atuguba explained that the aim of the project is to strengthen Cabinet (Ghana) so that it can effectively coordinate policies. He mentioned that there should be inter play between when a policy decision is taken, and the backing of the delivery of that policy decision. Hence, the coherence between these two dynamics is trying to solve the problem of policy coordination. He added that there are instances where there are different policies generated and manned by various agencies of Ghana or instances where the decisions are not implemented at all. He made reference to the President of Ghana who stated that he will increase the power generation by five thousand megawatts when he took office but this never saw the light of day as Ghanaians are still suffering from intense power outages suggesting that there is a problem with policy decision. The DELIVER programme in its' first year addressed the topmost policy concerns of the President to ensure that there were no contradictions in the execution of policies between the middle of year 2014 to March 2015. He used the Wage Bill verification exercise as an example. The aim of the exercise was to remove ghost names and revise the Wage Bill so that there will be more money left for development. The second part of the DELIVER Programme assisted in policy coordination at the Centre of Government. This phase was earmarked to the coordinating of policies and determining which were more salient. Dr. Atuguba outlined some lessons that were learnt during the first year. Dr. Atuguba said that the DELIVER programme seeks to ensure policy coordination, research analysis, improve the quality of cabinet memos, develop an ICT system, strengthen management, and administrative systems in cabinet through teambuilding. He spoke about the challenges and sustainability of the DELIVER programme and emphasized that there are a lot of challenges because policy is about resources and power. In terms of sustainability, he mentioned that should there be a transition in 2016, they expect that administration to sustain whatever policies have been carried out in the previous administration.
The Team Leader of LADA, Dr. Raymond A. Atuguba, together with Mr. Berifi A. Apenteng and Kreszentia M. Duer of the World Bank undertook a consultancy assignment for the Government of Liberia on their Independent Broadcasting Regulator Act.
Last year's event took place at the Best Western Premier Hotel, Accra on 23rd December, under the distinguished chairmanship of Dr Raymond Atuguba, former Executive Secretary to the President of the Republic of Ghana.
