Mapping mandates in Lagos State
This report describes the findings of an exercise to map the mandates and responsibilities of all ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) in Lagos State. The objectives were to get a clear picture of mandates, to identify any duplication of functions and to eliminate or reduce waste of state resources. The exercise also provided baseline information on MDA structures, systems and processes.
In all, 33 ministries with their various agencies and parastatals were mapped. Based on the findings, recommendations were made to clarify mandates and build collaboration between MDAs. The Lagos State Government was recommended to urgently eliminate duplication in mandates.
