Imphal: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Tuesday said the government is trying to properly assess the performances of government employees so that they can be properly rewarded and their services recognized by introducing a system to evaluate their performances.
He launched Smart Performance Appraisal Report Recording Online Window (SPARROW) for Manipur Civil Services (MCS) and Manipur Police Services (MPS) at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat.
Biren Singh expressed the need to adopt a holistic system of promotion of Government employees so that they perform their duties with interest and dedication.
He said that senior officers shouldn’t make any discrimination among their subordinates during a performance appraisal, and they should forget their personal enmities with them if any.
The Chief Minister further stressed the importance of senior officers to groom their juniors in order to make them fit to perform their jobs while getting promoted to higher offices.
The new application launched by the Chief Minister aims to facilitate the electronic filing of the Annual Confidential Report (ACR) in a way that is not only user-friendly but also allows filling from anywhere anytime as per convenience. The system will reduce delays in the submission and completion of ACRs.
With the electronic system in place, the recording and movement of ACRs forms become seamless, quick, and convenient due to inbuilt alert mechanisms through different modes at appropriate stages. It also provides status checks so that the officers know where their ACRs are pending as well as what is pending with them. The system will be implemented for other Organized Services also in the coming years in a phased manner.
SPARROW is an online system for assessment and record keeping of the Annual Confidential Report (ACRs) of officers based on the comprehensive performance appraisal dossier that is maintained for each member by the Government. The system is being implemented in the State for MCS and MPS in the first phase.
The Application is developed by National Informatics Centre in consultation with ACR Cell and the Department of Information & Technology, Government of Manipur. The URL for the application is https:parrow.mn.gov.in.
