Government has admitted that 67 entries were mistakenly included as part of the projects featured on the Performance Tracker following its launch.

It says the errors were detected by the public following the interest Ghanaians have shown in the Tracker, prompting authorities about those mistakes.

The Information Ministry, in a post on X Friday, April 12, 2024, expressed appreciation for the public’s interest in the initiative.

It said the engagement demonstrates the public’s commitment to ensuring integrity and accuracy in the information provided.

“Following the successful launch of the Performance Tracker, the Government expresses gratitude for the remarkable interest and scrutiny from citizens.

“This level of engagement demonstrates the public’s commitment to ensuring the accuracy and integrity of the information provided. Within 48 hours following the launch, our attention has been drawn to 67 entries which were erroneously included,” the post said.

It further disclosed that 74 projects which were also completed in June 2023 were omitted from the list and have subsequently been added.

The Performance Tracker, introduced by the government on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, aims to promote transparency and accountability in the implementation of infrastructure projects nationwide.

During the launch, the Minister of Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, emphasised its role in enhancing transparency and accountability in infrastructure projects across the country.

He noted that the tracker addresses long-standing concerns regarding the accuracy and reliability of project presentations, particularly regarding the use of artist’s impressions to depict outcomes.

He said the tracker currently showcases over 13,000 projects nationwide.

The Ofoase-Ayirebi MP highlighted that the tracker represents an upgraded version of the previously introduced Delivery Tracker by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in 2020, underscoring its significance in tracking the progress of various projects across the nation.
