These are blurred performance contracts as I would think they do not have subsets to an individual PS of a Ministry or Director of a Government Department or CEO of the respective parastatal and only cover reforms.
Please reset.

Another pie in the sky idea.

I may have not understood the post,but I was of the impression that every employee does a performance review at the end of the year?

What you are supposed to be doing is in the job description and you sign a contract of employment saying you understand what your job is.

Review is at the end of the year.

The two are not the same. Performance contract/Performance agreement is a promise made by an employee to an employer at the beginning of a financial year, what an employee intends to achieve within the agreed timeframe. It has Key Performance Indicators or deliverables. The employer use the performance contracts in monitoring and evaluating employee performance during and the end of the agreed timeframe. It enables an employer to achieve an objective performance appraisal.

Agree but Chanwera promised the cabinet ministers will be evaluated after 5 months period after their appointments. Under which KPIs will they be evaluated? Others by the look of public indicators have already failed. Is he going to reshuffle his cabinet to replace them with men and women who already have a high performance calibre?

Thank you.

Can you please give me a yardstick used when evaluating such a contract.

I can understand it being used in constructions,or stage performance.
