Under our overall focus on Assessment the Quality of Governance in Pakistan, PILDAT plans to assess the performance of the individual Ministries from time to time in order to provide the citizens with information on the role and working of various ministries. The Assessment of the Performance of the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training: June 2013 – June 2014 is the first report of its kind focussing on a Ministry’s role, functions and performance. The Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training (MoFE& PT) is a new Ministry. It was created in July 2011, few months after the old Ministry of Education (which had been working since 1973), was abolished as a result of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution. This report assesses the performance of the MoFE& PTin the first year after the Federal Government took office on June 4, 2013. Authored by Mr. Arshad Saeed Khan, based on an assessment framework prepared by PLDAT, the report looks at the role and functions of the Ministry, its budgetary allocation set against targets, and comments on performance including transparency and governance.
