NBC Conducts Concessions Reporting Training
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, September 14 (LINA) - The National Bureau of Concessions (NBC) has conducted a one-day training on the use of the Concessions Reporting Template (CRT) in Monrovia.

The training was aimed at providing concessionaires the basic knowledge on how to utilize the reporting template for effective reporting of operations and activities in line with the respective agreements and approved development plans.

The CRT is a national concessions reporting tool developed by the NBC with support from concession granting entities and international partners.

Developed alongside the Concessions Information Management System, the tool is uniformed with the intent to have one information data collection system on concessions, thereby curtailing the multiplicity of reports by government entities responsible for concessions.

Speaking at the opening session of the training, NBC Director General, Ciata A. Bishop, encouraged concession companies to take interest in the training as it was also intended to improving the ability of users for timely reporting by companies.

“We want to erase this bureaucratic way of reporting to government where all of the responsible government entities on concessions ask you for reports,” she said.

According to her, the template has all of the information needed from companies as well as data on companies' revenue, operations, production, labor and employment, among others.

The training, which was held at the bureau’s headquarters in Sinkor, was facilitated by the Information Technology Manager at the NBC, Mr. Mathew K Ziah.

Speaking earlier, NBC Deputy Director General Ramses T. Kumbuyah said the training was launched in June 2016 during the NBC Visibility Improvement Workshop held in Gbarnga, Bong County.

He said the training targeted a total number of 102 technicians from 51 concessions responsible for reporting at the various companies.

Kumbuyah said the training covers all concessions, including mining, forestry, agriculture, oil and gas.
