The North East Regional Coordinating Council has been positioned 16th out of the 16 RCCs according to the Local Government Service 2021 Performance Evaluation Report on RCCs and MMDAs in Ghana.

The Local Government Service per section 51 of the Local Governance Act, 2016 (Act 936), is established to secure effective administration and management of decentralized Local Government system in the country. As stated in its mission, the Local Government Service (LGS) “exists to support Local Government to deliver value for money services through the mobilization, harmonization and utilization of qualified, human capacity and material resources to promote local and national development”.

In line with this mission statement, the LGS has developed a comprehensive Performance Management System (PMS) that is based on agreed Service Delivery Standards (SDS). The Service Delivery Standards are operationalized through the PMS at all levels.

PMS is a systematic process for improving performance by developing the individual performance of staff and teams to enhance productivity, develop competencies, increase job satisfaction and achieve the full potential of all staff in the Service in line with Local Governance Act, 2016 (Act 936).

It is operationalised through the Performance Management Instruments (Contract & Appraisal) in which the Service enters into agreement and commitment with its employees to set clear, quantifiable objectives and indicators for attainment within a given timeframe.

For the year 2021, Performance Contracts (PCs) based on planned achievement of indicators in Key Performance Areas were signed between Honourable Regional Ministers (RMs) and their Regional Coordinating Directors (RCDs) at the Regional level and Honourable Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) and their Metropolitan, Municipal and District Coordinating Directors (MMDCDs) at the District level.
