At the exist conference and presentation of interim report ceremony, the visibly elated District Chief Executive, Hon.

He implored them to continue performing at the optimum level to ensure the development of the district.
The District Assembly Performance Assessment Tool (DPAT) is the assessment tool for the Performance Based Grant System (PBGS) known as the District Assemblies Common Fund – Responsive Factor Grant (DACF-RFG) which the government of Ghana in collaboration with Development Partners and key Stakeholders have implemented since 2018.
The programme assesses the performance of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) using the DPAT. This assessment of MMDAs is part of efforts to improve the performance of District Assemblies in terms of efficiency, accountability and delivery of basic community services.
Assemblies that perform satisfactorily are financially rewarded to implement their Medium-Term Development Plans (MTDPs) and Annual Action Plans (AAPs) which largely contribute significantly to the advancement of the socio-economic development of citizens.
