  • The Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation is a public-sector focused philanthropic organisation founded to improve the lives of Africans through transformed public-service delivery and access to quality primary healthcare.

    The Foundation is currently working with the Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG) to develop the Aig-Imoukhuede Public Sector Index which seeks to measure the impact of public sector activities on the overall productivity and economic growth of the Nigerian economy and on the wellbeing of its citizens.

    Further information can be found at https : / / www.aigafrica.org /

    As part of its work to facilitate the transformation of the Nigerian public sector, the Measuring Performance Thematic Working Group (MPTG) of Governance and Institutions Policy Commission (GIPC) of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) in conjunction with the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, seeks to create a Nigerian public sector index.

    Public sector activities influence a countryäó s performance via two means - directly, through the level and changes of productivity within the public sector, and indirectly, by enabling enhanced productivity in the private sector.

    Public sector activities therefore have a direct influence on a countryäó s key economic and social indicators with research establishing a positive causal relationship between the efficiency of a countryäó s public sector and its economic and social development (OECD, 2001).

    One of the ways increased efficiency in a countryäó s public sector can be facilitated is via the provision of information about public sector activities to stakeholders.

    Access to the right data can inform policy, stimulate research, and encourage informed debate. Indicator reports and indices are indispensable tools in information dissemination as they can present complex data in an accessible format, and they are useful in identifying trends in performance and policies and drawing attention to issues (OECD, 2008).
