About the President's Delivery Bureau

The President’s Delivery Bureau (PDB) is an independent department within the Office of the President mandated to oversee the implementation of BRN and the operation of the BRN Delivery System. It was established through the Minister’s [Discharge of Ministerial Functions] Act, Cap.299, under Section 5 (1) in May 2013.

The PDB’s core functions are:

  • to closely monitor progress of the National Key Result Area (NKRA) initiatives to ensure the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) remain on track
  • to identify blockages and coordinate proactive problem-solving to overcome specific challenges in implementation
  • to escalate issues for high-level resolution to the NKRA Ministers or the BRN Transformation and Delivery Council, chaired by the President of the United Republic of Tanzania
  • to identify new NKRAs for inclusion in Big Results Now! and run Labs to develop detailed implementation plans

The PDB is supported in these functions by the newly established Ministerial Delivery Units (MDUs) in each Ministry as well as by the existing government structures and systems. Plans are underway to establish Regional Delivery Units for similar purposes.
