A STUDY INTO THE NEED OF PERFOMANCE CONTRACTING OF PROFESSIONALS. A CASE STUDY OF QUANTITY SURVEYORS IN THE MINISTRY OF PUBLIC WORKS.

ABSTRACT
The government introduced performance contracts to enhance performance of the public sector.
This included all employees of the public sector which includes even the professionals.
Professionals are usually very highly qualified and they have respective professional bodies and
associations that guarantee their competence, performance and integrity.
Professionals also have must-attend CPD programs that among other things enhance their
performance. The research aims to find out the need for performance contracting for
professionals whereas other methods of ensuring and enhancing performance are in place.
The research established that there is a sure need of performance contracting of professionals.
This is even with other aspects e.g. training, professional associations and CPD programs also
playing a part in enhancing performance.
The study also established unethical behaviors that negate the performance of a public QS.
Conclusions and recommendations were made on the above and hopefully this will help increase
the performance of professionals in the public sector.
