The Ministry of Planning has applied a new electronic system, the first in Egypt to assess government performance. It is a quarterly assessment that is based on strategic performance indicators, said Planning Minister Hala el Saeid.

The system allows decision makers to follow up the implementation of all programs and plans through measurable digital criteria, Saeid added.

She said that her Ministry had designed the national electronic system for monitoring and evaluation, which is based on unified and binding tools meant to upgrade government performance and ensure targets are met.

Under this system, budgeting is also performance-based, thus any wage increase is directly linked with production levels.

The new system also helps achieve coordination among the different ministries and bodies to guarantee effective public spending and to improve the quality of services offered to citizens.
