Premier B-School Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) faculty shall provide capacity building support for the Centre's ambitious project on PMESGD, approved by the Prime Minister in September last year.
"A group of 11 IIM-A faculty members and one from IIT-Mumbai shall be part of the core research group constituted for providing research and training support for the project on performance of departments and ministries initiated by the cabinet secretariat," the core group co-ordinator Prof Biju Varkkey of IIM-A told PTI.
There are 84 ministries and departments that are likely to fall under the ambit of this project, Varkkey said.
Among the main functions of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation System for Government Departments (PMESGD), is to design a state-of-the-art performance management system in the government after a comprehensive review of international best practices, and document the approved performance evaluation and management methodology, and update it from time to time.
"The preliminary round of research for this project began here in October last year and ended in December 2009," Varkkey said, adding, that the second round was slated to take off from March this year.
