Information was obtained through (i) the 'Progress of development projects and programmes as at 31st March 2018' Report published online by the Department of Project Management and Monitoring; and (ii) the Action Plans, Financial Plan and Progress Report received from the responsible agency in response to a request under the RTI Act. However, information received in response to the request was obtained after an appeal and required significant effort to assess progress since the Action Plan and Progress Report did not employ a consistent reporting framework and could not be reconciled.
Some activities under the promise have been initiated. However, information on progress was only available for the first three months and was behind the target set for the first three months. Based on the information, progress as at 31 March 2018 was 5%, compared to a target of 20%. Since progress could not be determined for the full period of assessment (January-June 2018), progress is assumed to be lagging.
