Ashghal is committed to timely delivery of its projects by focusing on cost reduction and quality improvement, president Saad bin Ahmed al-Muhannadi said on Thursday.
He was speaking at a meeting to discuss about the projects to be implemented in the two remaining quarters of the financial year ending on March 31, 2019.
The Public Works Authority's directors, managers and several other employees also made a review of the performance of various departments for the first and second quarters of the current year, under Ashghal Strategy 2018-2022.
Under the strategy, Ashghal aims to achieve its vision of "excellence in delivering and managing efficient sustainable infrastructure" as envisioned in the Qatar National Vision 2030.
To achieve this vision, Ashghal's president is keen on reviewing the progress in implementing the strategy and measuring the performance level consistent with the new vision, mission, themes and corporate objectives.
In order to provide a clear framework for its corporate objectives, Ashghal is keen to follow its four strategic themes: health and safety; excellence in delivery; developing capabilities, and focus on customers and stakeholders, al-Muhannadi said.
"Reviewing the level of our business performance and our way of implementing the corporate strategy in all our works helps us to develop our capabilities and define our place on the map of progress and growth. It also supports Ashghal in its transition from an authority entrusted with awarding and executing efficient sustainable infrastructure projects for the state to an entity that focuses on the operation and maintenance of the state’s road and drainage networks and delivering quality services and solutions in managing projects and assets," he said.
"We still need to overcome some of the challenges to meet timely delivery, focusing our efforts on cost reduction and quality improvement. Therefore, we will continue our works relying on our resources and ensuring that the corporate objectives we have set are up to the mark on par with best practices locally and internationally. Thus, it is important to continue our performance review that we have started as part of our corporate transition, so that we live up to the expectations of the State of Qatar and always deliver the best, as “Qatar deserves the best,” al-Muhannadi added.
