The proposed internal accountability mechanism aimed at ensuring efficiency and improving performance of the National Accountability Bureau was reviewed here in a meeting at the organisation’s headquarters, said a press release.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairperson Qamar Zaman Chaudhry while chairing the meeting emphasised the need to augment and strengthen the process of the internal accountability mechanism with a view to weed out elements that for reasons of inefficiency, misconduct, malpractice and violation of laid down rules bring a bad name to the organisation.
The Inspection and Monitoring Team (CI&MT) chairman in his presentation said that an effective internal accountability mechanism had been devised in order to encourage the culture of adherence to rules and SOPs.
He informed that under the mechanism, matters related to delinquency of NAB’s officials shall be first dealt by the regional offices in accordance with law. Subsequently, the Human Resource Division of NAB will proceed against those officials.
Chaudhry said NAB was Pakistan’s apex anti-corruption organisation with the mandate to eliminate corruption from the country. He said that the organisation’s performance had been appreciated by the Transparency International and PILDAT.
