About the Ministry

Prior to 1985, there was no independent Department or Ministry with the sole purpose of independently monitoring Central Sector Projects and key infrastructure sectors including the social sectors. The Ministry of Programme Implementation (now the Department of Programme Implementation) was therefore set up in 1985 in recognition of the need for exclusive attention to apex-level Central Monitoring of the implementation of these programmes. Over a period of time the Department has built up a rich data bank, acquired professional expertise and developed capability for carrying out objective monitoring and evaluation. Being independent of the planning machinery and administrative ministries, it is able to be objective in its analysis and the experience gained over the years gives it professional expertise.
