This new PPP databank project database aims to increase transparency and efficiency in the implementation of this type of projects. The database will have information about the name, sector, region, funding, estimated cost, completion time, and status of each project, which will have assigned an identification number . The information will be available for the public.
Deputy Director for the National Policy and Programme Implementation Department (NPPID), Ngoza Munthali, stated:
"The challenge has been lack of a database that's how come we are developing a central database so we can keep tabs on projects across the country."
Mufumbwe District Commissioner (DC) , Mankishi Mukokwe, commented:
"We have many projects and ideas that we do and identify locally but they often take too long to materialise because everything is centrally done. If the process was cut short we would be more efficient in implementing projects as a country."
Mufumbwe District Council Secretary Alisinda Nawa, added:
"Mufumbwe lacks information on how we can correctly undertake some projects without necessarily overstepping our jurisdiction. So we need to have information to be scaled down to us so that we can quicken the process of implementing projects we develop ourselves."
"We want to do more to complement government's efforts through small projects like stone crushing and farming but the procedures to get clearance and things like that retards our efforts."
