A LOOK AT WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

OUR CALL OF DUTY

The Prime Minister's Delivery Unit (PMDU)  is a program in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM). It is mandated to catalyzed the implementation of national priorities and enable the realization of big and fast results through a methodical approach to planning for implementation and execution. .


JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROGRAM

PMDU was conceived in the National Development Program (NDPII) and approved by cabinet in April 2015, with a primary call to identify challenges and bottlenecks affecting implementation of government programs and to find a solution. This was in response to concerns about the delays in the implementation of government priorities, drawing from similar experiences in other countries like the United Kingdom (UK), RwandaKenyaMalaysia and other parts of the world.

OUR METHODOLOGY

Working originally across five thematic areas (EducationHealthJobs and IncomeInfrastructure and Data) and recently expanding into four (4) more (Food ProductionAgro-ProcessingIndustry and Financing in twenty (20) focus districts, we operate as a key sector catalyst helping to translate government priorities into actions.

Our intervention focus on the generation of clearly defined stakeholder efforts for realization of strategic outcomes through a methodical approach informed by our (5P) deliverology implementation principles.
