  • to promote a sense of collective responsibility for performance;
  • to assign clear duties for the management and co-ordination of administrative units, systems and mechanisms;
  • to define in precise terms the duties of each political structure and political office bearer;
  • to determine the relationships amongst the political structures, political office bearers and the administration, and the appropriate lines of accountability and reporting for each of them.
