Message from the office

The Performance Contracting Implementation Structure for Alupe University (AU) includes the Office of Performance Contracting under the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Finance and Development (DVC-AFD) & our lead champion is the Vice-Chancellor. The DVC-AFD plays a central liaison role between the various players and implementers. The critical part is linking the Performance Contracting Steering Committee and the Process Owners to the University Council. The Performance Contracting Steering Committee plays an oversight and advisory function across the whole process. Besides assisting the Process Owners in Setting, Negotiating, and Cascading the Annual Performance Targets, this Committee monitors the implementation progress through reviews, evaluations, and reporting to the University Management Board, Council, and External Agencies. At the heart of the Performance Contracting Steering Committee is the PC Secretariat which plays the day-to-day administrative and logistical functions of Performance Contracting. The Implementing Process Owners are the Deans of Schools, Heads of Departments, Heads of Sections, and Heads of Units. Performance Contracting is a mechanism under public sector reforms that aims at improving the performance of the public sector through targets and specifying agent performance in terms of results. Performance Contract is an agreement between the government of the Republic of Kenya through the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology, and the Management of Alupe University. Performance contracting aims to establish clarity and consensus about priorities for the Alupe University management to ensure that systems are installed to promote equality of all users of public service is achieved. Performance contracting also focuses on ensuring impartiality and fairness in the process of delivery of public services. Institutionalizing a culture of accountability, integrity, transparency, and promoting values and principles of the public service. Ensuring effective, efficient, and responsible use of public resources and enhancing responsiveness by public servants in the delivery of services.
