Kwahu East District Chief Executive, Hon Isaac Agyapong and the District Monitoring and Evaluation Team of the Assembly pleased with the ongoing projects of how steadily the work is progressing.
This came to light after the Assembly conducted a monitoring exercise from 15th to 16th November, 2021 to ascertain the progress of ongoing programmes and projects in the District, to ensure quality assurance and also to ensure value for money in delivery of service.
Ten (10) project sites with funding from DACF, DDF, and GETFUND were visited by the monitoring team.
The monitoring team was led by the District Chief Executive and drawn from a wide spectrum of stakeholders in the District comprising of DPCU Monitoring and Evaluation team, beneficiary institutions, Traditional Authorities, Area Councils/Unit Committee members and other identifiable organizations.

The monitoring team was satisfied with the type of labour being used by the contractors. However, some of the contractors were not available on site as at the time of visit. The monitoring team was satisfied with the quality of work so far.
Generally, it was observed that work at each of the project site was progressing steadily, contractors were working within the scheduled time and work output was satisfactory. The contractors were urged to work hard to ensure timely completion of the projects.
