Performance Management Overview
Performance management for local government influences the creating of a performance culture in the public service at municipal level.
Performance management, as a key transversal corporate process is employed to ensure that municipalities are delivering on their mandates. Each municipality is legally required to develop a performance management system (PMS) that will enhance organisational efficiency and effectiveness, account for the use of municipal resources and indicate the achievement of outcomes. A Performance Management System is also employed to serve as an early warning mechanism as it reflects non-performance or underperformance, thus allowing for relevant intervention for improvement.
