STRATEGIC ISSUES

Development of state of the art physical facilities that support the core functions is hampered by PPOA regulations. Some urgent requests and issues take unnecessarily long to address.

It is difficult to attract and maintain high caliber and qualified staff due to lack of motivation and low emoluments offered.

The department is in dire need of facilitation for maintenance traveling and communication and office expenses to achieve optimum supervisory levels.

There is need to employ more staff, both professionals and other skilled manpower so that the department can be more efficient in service delivery.

FUTURE PROJECTIONS

The department intends to attract and maintain high caliber and qualified staff to enable us meet the requirements of developing state-of-the-art physical facilities that support the core functions of the University.
