Understanding Government Process & Procedures

Extracts from the Facebook site: Wapenamanda District, Enga Province, PNG. Thanks to the Admin and the author

It is important as citizens that we understand some basic “standards of practice” in the operation of the Government of Papua New Guinea.

and Minister for Foreign Affairs
 Annually each District receives funding from the National Government which goes into the District Operating Account. The funds are received monthly or quarterly and deposited into the “operating accounts”. 

The deposits are routinely subject to National Department of Treasury cash-flow constraints. They are in two (2) categories. The District Service Improvement Plan (DSIP) receives annually K10 million and the District Service Grant (DSG) receives annually K500,000.

Director Mr Paul Kurai 
 In 2015 the National Government also distributed TIDE grants to every District in the amount of K5 million to assist in various key sectors for development. 

In Wapenamanda District the K5 million was allocated as follows: Gutnuis Lutheran Rural Hospital – Mambisanda K2 million and St. Paul’s Lutheran Secondary School – Pausa K3 million. 

These amounts will be spent to improve the condition of both the historic landmark institutions in Wapenamanda District.

The K10 million allocated to the District is annually budgeted for and is utilized in the construction of new buildings for schools and health centres, feeder

Sir Peter Ipatas to upgrade schools in Enga

Enga Governor Peter Ipatas has made an undertaking to upgrade the status of Porgera High School to a secondary school in 2017.

“We are looking at upgrading Porgera High School status to a secondary school in 2017. However, we would first like to see standard learning facilities are in place as quality education is our priority,” he said.

Sir Peter made the statement before a capacity crowd at Porgera High School yesterday who were there to witness the official opening of a double classroom and delivery of a new truck to the school.

He said by 2020 Enga should have all its existing high schools being converted to secondary schools as that was one of the visions of the education reforms.
