ADP implementation progress satisfactory, says Saifur
FE Report
1/19/2006
 

          Finance and Planning Minister M Saifur Rahman Wednesday expressed satisfaction on the progress of implementation of annual development programme (ADP) for fiscal 2005-06.
"Till November the ADP implementation rate was disappointing," Saifur Rahman told reporters after a review meeting on ADP.
He said the implementation rate had gone up in December.
Planning ministry officials placed latest data on 12 to 13 ministries and divisions during the meeting showing the average implementation rate at 33 per cent until December.
"I think it's not a bad performance considering the progress of ADP implementation in December," he added.
He pointed out that the utilisation of ADP fund was not satisfactory in the first quarter of the current fiscal due to delay in tender procedure and some problems relating to procurement guidelines.
"But once these problems were resolved, the implementation rate of the ADP became faster," he said adding that the ministries and divisions were now hopeful of maintaining similar progress in the coming months.
Some 15 ministries and divisions, which are responsible for carrying out more than 75 per cent of Tk 245 billion ADP, implemented only 23 per cent in first five months of the 2005-06.
This was the lowest implementation rate for the period of July to November in last four fiscals.
The ministries and divisions, however, could overcome the sluggishness in ADP fund utilisation and showed better performances in December.
To a query Planning secretary Akhtar Hossain could not give any satisfactory answer about the sudden jump in ADP implementation in December.
"It might happen," he said.
To another query, Hossain said the performance of the Communication Ministry is worst among the lead ministries.
Education, health, primary and mass education and Chittagong hill tracts ministries, according to him, have done fairly well in utilisation of the ADP fund.
The next ADP review meeting is likely take place in February.
