Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) was formally established on the 16th of September, 2009 and is a unit under the Prime Minister's Department. PEMANDU's main role and objective is to oversee the implementation, assess the progress, facilitate as well as support the delivery and drive the progress of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
Chairman of the PEMANDU board is the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak. The post of Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PEMANDU is held by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, YB Senator Dato' Sri Idris Jala.
While the responsibility for end-to-end delivery of National Key Results Areas (NKRAs) and Ministerial Key Results Areas (MKRAs) outcomes ultimately rests with the respective ministries, and the success of the National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) rests with the private sector, PEMANDU has been mandated to catalyse bold changes in public and private sector delivery, support the ministries in the delivery planning process and provide an independent view of performance and progress to the PM and ministers.
In relation to the ETP, PEMANDU has been tasked with facilitating the implementation
of the Entry Point Projects (EPPs) and Business Opportunities (BOs) that have been
identified to ensure that Malaysia is transformed into a high-income nation by 2020.
To allow PEMANDU to carry out its responsibilities effectively, it combines the
best talent from both the civil service and private sector.
