I have established a decentralisation implementation group in my Department to manage the decentralisation process. It is chaired by an assistant secretary and includes representatives from the areas or agencies scheduled for decentralisation. The chief executive officer of the National Roads Authority is a member of this group. A staff survey has not been completed but the question of conducting a survey of the nature referred to above is among the issues being considered by this group.
