Varsity officer as head of project raises eyebrows
Peshawar: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has posted an officer of a public sector university to head an important project in the planning and development department in violation of rules and regulations, sources say.

According to a notification issued by establishment and administration department, Dil Nawaz, senior chief at planning and development department, has been transferred and posted as director general of Monitoring and Evaluation Project in the same department on deputation.

Mr Nawaz, a grade 20 officer at Gomal University Dera Ismail Khan, has replaced Tahir Azeem, who has been directed to report to the planning and development department.

Sources said that Mr Nawaz was called from the Gomal University on deputation and given the senior slot in the department by Senior Minister Rahimdad Khan.

The minister moved a summary to the chief minister in June this year, requesting the posting of Mr Nawaz as head of Monitoring and Evaluation Project for the reason that it had failed to bear required results. The minister, in the summary, had argued that the government was supposed to set up monitoring and evaluation system in the province to oversee uplift schemes financed from both the federal and provincial exchequers, sources said.

For this purpose a special scheme was incorporated in the last year Annual Development Programme with an allocation of Rs154.867 million to develop a monitoring and evaluation system in the province on divisional basis.

The minister complained to the chief minister that the project had failed to make any progress. He requested for posting of Mr Nawaz for the purpose to stimulate the project activities, sources added.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief secretary had already opposed the posting of an officer of a public sector university to lead project of important nature, an official at establishment department said.

The official said that posting of the officer had violated the eligibility criteria as well as a policy the provincial government had notified in 2008, which dealt with recruitment in the development projects.

The director general of monitoring and evaluation, as mentioned the chief secretary in his response, was required to be a grade 20 officer from the provincial or federal civil services, while an officer from any university was not qualified for the job, the official said.

Similarly, the officer to be appointed against this post must have a minimum experience of 15 years of implementation, planning, evaluation, monitoring of public sector development projects. However, the said officer also did not appear eligible on this account, said the official.

Also, the official said the NWFP Policy Regulating Appointment to Posts in Development Project, 2008, had also been violated while making the appointment.

According to this policy, a selection committee headed by additional chief secretary will select a suitable officer through competition and the post will be advertised at least in two widely circulated national newspapers. No such procedure, however, was followed while making the posting, the official maintained.

A source in planning and development department also dispelled the impression that the project had not made any progress, saying that seven divisional monitoring and evaluation offices had been set up in Bannu, Dera Ismail Khan, Hazara, Kohat, Malakand, Mardan and Peshawar divisions.

Recruitment of technical staff had been completed in March last year and so far the offices had monitored almost 319 schemes in those areas, the source said.

Senior Minister Rahimdad Khan, who holds the portfolio of planning and development department, when contacted, said that there was no question of violating rules and regulations."The officer had experience of handling development projects and he can do better monitoring and evaluation of the projects than his predecessors," Mr Khan said.

He said that Mr Nawaz posting was not contrary to the provisions of PC-I of the project. Dawn
