During the launch event, Education Secretary Dr. Uke Kombra underscored the pressing need for a standardized approach to managing project reports. Dr. Kombra emphasized the importance of presenting project data in a uniform and easily understandable manner to facilitate effective monitoring and accountability.

Acknowledging the complexities of managing multiple projects simultaneously, particularly concerning fund allocation and utilization, Dr. Kombra highlighted the limitations posed by the department's small project implementation unit.

The MPMS, developed by local software firm INDTechlabs headquartered in Port Moresby, offers a robust set of tools designed to empower project managers in tracking various aspects of project performance until completion. Indira Ramesh, Managing Director of INDTechlabs, emphasized the user-friendly nature of the software, ensuring accessibility for department personnel.

Prior to the official launch, extensive training sessions were conducted with project managers and departmental staff to facilitate a seamless transition to the new system. Ramesh highlighted the collaborative efforts undertaken to ensure that the MPMS meets the specific needs and requirements of the Papua New Guinea Education Department.

The introduction of the MPMS represents a significant advancement in the department's quest for efficient project management and accountability. As the department continues to navigate the complexities of project implementation, the MPMS stands poised to enhance coordination and facilitate informed decision-making for future endeavors.
