Bong Service Center Generates LD$1.5m in 4 Months
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 24 (LINA) - The Coordinator of the Bong County Service Center (CSC), Jefferson Gbayan, has reported that revenue generated from the Center in Gbarnga since its dedication totals L$1.5 million.

The CSCs were established by government to take services directly to the people under the National Decentralization Support Program.

The Bong County Service Center was formally dedicated in May this year.

The center is a one-stop-shop where documents relating to the issuance of business registration, birth certificates, driver licenses, and marriage certificates, among others, are offered at the same cost and quality as in Monrovia.

According to Gbayan, the quarterly report, which covers May, June, July and August, indicates the issuance of 2,185 birth certificates, 194 business registration, several driver licenses, traditional and Western marriage certificates and other documentations.

He told the Liberia News Agency recently that the CSC during the period catered to over 3,000 service users with birth registration, which is free, being the highest recorded.

Gbayan noted that of the 21 services being provided at the center, 20 are active although there were coordination issues among the line ministries and agencies on which, he said, the government and partners are working to ensure more efficiency in service delivery.

He noted that as of October, government will restore the effective issuance of vehicle registration and driver licenses and the ECOWAS Biometric work permit, which are being delayed due to some software problems.

Meanwhile, Gbayan has cautioned the public against doing business with people outside of the CSC to avoid fraud.

The implementation of the Liberia Decentralization Support Program is being funded by the European Union, Swedish Government, USAID, UNMIL and UNDP.
