ELEVEN teams participating in this year’s 17th National Quality Control Circle Convention presented their projects at the Civil Service Institute yesterday.
The finalists came from five departments under various ministries comprising the Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministry of Development, the Ministry of Communications, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources.
Some of the projects presented included the inefficient use of petrol for water transportation, key performance indicators in the department’s strategic plan not taken action on, the excessive use of hydrogen gas, and the ineffective management of data.
Present to witness the presentation of the projects was Dayang Hajah Norezan binti Hj Hambali, the Acting Director of Civil Service Institute, as well as heads of department from numerous government agencies.
Quality Control Circle group or Kumpulan Kerja Cemerlang (KKC) was introduced to the country since 1984.
It is one of the continuous initiatives of the government in improving the public service’s administration and to build the culture on work that is of quality, commitment and responsibility.
The Civil Service Institute has organised the National Quality Control Circle Convention annually since 2001 to further promote the use of Quality Control Circle among departments within the ministries.
The outcome and prize presentation for the 17th National Quality Control Circle Convention will take place on November 10 at the Royal Berkshire Hall of Polo Club, Jerudong.
