Prof. Shibairo expressed his faith in the University staff and called on all section heads to cultivate strong linkages with useful contacts outside the University, adding that this will avail back-links with institutions and organizations that matter.

“We need to foster electronic relationships especially in this digital era. It is the modern way of doing business. I expect each cost centre to form a back-link every semester,” he stated.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor Administration and Finance, Prof. John Kuria Thuo advised Cost Centre Heads to internalize their performance contract and generate their own basic dashboard to help them track their own performance. “We need to document what we are doing through minutes, programs and reports,” he noted.

Speaking during the function, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Planning, Research and Innovation Prof. Charles Mutai said that achievement of set targets requires teamwork. “This is the 4th cycle of the Performance Contract (PC) and we look forward to celebrating achievements of the 2021/2022 Performance Contract. Let us work as a team to reach our desired goal,” he added.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic and Student Affairs (ASA), Prof. Hussein Golicha reiterated that the performance contract will ventilate all areas of the University’s operations and light up the path towards successful attainment of our mission and vision.

“The signing of the performance contract is not an end in itself but the beginning of work that needs to be done through implementation,” he stated.

Besides determining the quality and efficiency in service delivery, the signing of the performance contracts is significant in the actualization of the University’s plans and objectives. The ball is certainly in the court of the heads of cost centres.
