To ensure implementation and compliance, a series of communication will ensue from the office of the Director-General of the Cabinet.

The Cabinet Secretariat, under the supervision of the Director-General of the Cabinet, will guide the implementation of the Performance Management and Compliance System, and the Citizen Feed-back Mechanism, the statement said.
