How come this district is ranked first but documents such as 5 Year Development Plan, Audit Report, etc .. not presented!!! 不不不不不不不不....
Admin reply: Yes, it is currently ranked first but only has a score of 42 out of 100. Just shows how poorly all the other DDAs are scoring!

Can you give me report on how my district Finchaffen is performing?

Kelly Kayanga (not verified) , November 2023

No requested documents and yet ActNow has ranked Wau-Waria DDA 2nd? This is fishy. Also, these documents should not be the measure of performance as they do not reflect the true development of the district. These documents are used as indicators to measure the level of "citizen access to government information", citizen participation and empowerment on one hand, and government accountability on the other hand. Therefore, to say that documents are measures of the overall performance of a DDA is misleading and false.
Administration Response:

DDA Watch aims to promote transparency and good governance.

The rating score and ranking does NOT reflect a comprehensive evaluation of the performance and effectiveness of a DDA or the quality of the services in a particular District. The score and ranking is merely an indicator of how a DDA rates against a set list of transparency and good governance indicators.
The rating score assesses the performance of each DDA against a number of fixed criteria as listed below and also incorporates a public satisfaction element key Indicators that shows transparency and good governance.

This fixed criteria are:
Current five year development plan - 10 points
Current annual budget - 10 points
Acquittal report (previous year) - 10 points
DIRD Inspection report (max 2 years old) - 10 points
Audit report (max 3 years old) - 10 points
Functioning email address - 10 points
Postal address - 5 points
Contact phone number - 5 points

Wau waria scored 43 points and ranks second in the country. 43/100 score is even below the half score of 50 points and when ranked second speaks alot for itself. It shows that the key public documents (fixed criteria to rank the DDAs) for all districts in PNG is inaccessible or not available. How do we account for DSIP funds without this documents?

All DDAs are encouraged to submit their plans, budgets, acquittals, inspection reports and audits and to provide their contact details for inclusion on the website - contact form.

To my astonishment I see my District in second place in the country DDA ranking and I'm humble. As a very new constituence we have produce results beyond the expectations and it's a promising sign. All the Credits goes back to chrismatic leadership platform provided by Hon Masrh Narewec and Wau Waria District Administration ( WWDA). Job well done keep on serving our people of Wau Waria.
