How monitoring of developmental activities are done in Gewog?

In gewogs, there are monitoring committee to oversee and guide the developmental activities. The monitoring committee in the gewog comprises of Gewog Administrative officer, Respective extension officers, Gewog Accountant, concern Tshogpa and site engineer. 

When we go for monitoring we inspect the quality of work, progress of work, availability of raw materials at site and the no. of labourers at work place.

After monitoring the project, we submit a report to the Gup and in case if there's a delay or the result/work is not up to the par, we inform the Dzongkhag Monitoring committee and contractor immediately.

Though Tshogpas are part of monitoring committee and are guided by GAOs, they can’t always monitor the project properly. It is because of lack of technical knowledge.

Rural Water Supply Scheme and Irrigation manual work are done by the public with technical support from Dzongkhag. Sometimes without man power and lack of public participation, it not only hampers the quality of work but there are also delay in completion of work. With only one technician looking after many gewog projects, it makes even more difficult for developments to take place properly. 

The system of monitoring also differs from Dzongkhag to Dzongkhag. In some Dzongkhag they develop a standard monitoring format and it is used by all the gewogs. 

Whenever, the Dzongkhag monitoring committees come for monitoring they inform the gewog administration in advance and one representative from the gewog will be involved in monitoring.
