The Director General of the General Services Agency, Mary Broh has frown on public officials in the  habit of using Government vehicles for their personal advertisement.

According to Madam Broh, Government vehicles should be used for work proposes and not for funeral, church or night club as done by many public officials.

She spoke at a one day validation organized by the Monrovia City Cooperation held on September 24, 2019 aim at ensuring proper management and effectiveness on the job.

She mentioned that some public officials use Government vehicles to transport sand, crushed rock among others.  She said,  “these Vehicles must be parked after work.”

Madam Broh cautioned  MCC to hire the right team to include:  directors, coordinators, and drivers ensuring Government vehicles last even beyond the earmarked year.

“Vehicles operation should not be hired on the basis  of friendship. They must be honest, responsible and integrity should be at the top of their duty. Leave government car alone,” she warmed.

She also recommended that the MCC  should make  use of the Procurement process as it is very important in the area of fleet management and insurance of their logistics to include bike, pickup among others.

“Ensure that insurance companies should be to central bank of Liberia (CBL) because there are 419 insurance companies around,” she stated.

There should be a car report registry and that all vehicles should be tracked to ensure effectiveness and efficiency, madam Broh indicated.

Madam Broh recounted that the security of the fleet is important and  therefore operators and staff should be trained to the road ensuring the vehicles are road worthy.

Meanwhile the Monrovia City Cooperation (MCC) had validated seven (7) of its policies to include: draft policies of the City Government of Monrovia, draft financial management and internal control, draft procurement manual and control policy, draft policy on fleet management, draft policy on the corporate, social responsibility and the usage of scratch cards, gasoline, and fuel.

This is to bring about efficiency and effectiveness in service delivery at the MCC and to ensure improvement on the job. TNR
