Introduction

About Works Manager Online

Works Manager an enterprise windows based desktop application deployed at the Works Section of the Department of Logistics and Supply (DLS) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) for managing information on biding, award, monitoring, assessment and payments recommendation on infrastructure contracts. Features include allowing staff to create, modify and generate relevant reports and documentation pertinent to the contracts awarded and supervised. Key documents of relevance include Contractors Details, Contracts Details, Schedules of Payment, Contract Award Letters, Due Process Certificates (Awards, Payments), Interim Certificates and Payment Vouchers. These documents are created in strict order in compliance with standard procedures and practices in supervision and management of contracts in the Nigeria Police Force.

Works Manager Online is a web based application extending these tools for managing infrastructure projects by providing Internet based features. Works Manager Online serves two main purposes. The first is as a public engagement blog that enables DLS engage effectively with key stakeholders and the public in general, with the view to educate and sensitise the public, and, above all, get valuable feedback on the impact of the projects initiated in various communities. The second purpose is as a project monitoring tool for management and project supervisory staff to effectively the progress of the contracts across the various commands and zones by transmitting information (pictures, videos, documents) via the internet. One of the expected outcomes improved project delivery cycles.

Technically, Works Manager Online is a website hosting a customised application with features for monitoring the progress of construction and rehabilitation contracts awarded by the Nigeria Police Force and supervised by its Department of Logistics and Supply. From any site location in any command or zones, project officers can take pictures and videos of activities and submit them online with concise descriptions (via predefined form templates) on the website. This provides the management of the Nigeria Police Force with a powerful tool to monitor the progress of all their contracts online from a central website.

Works Manager Online gets the contracts details from the Works Manager desktop application on which contract details and award documentation are stored. When a contract is awarded to a contractor, the details of that contract stored Works Manager are then uploaded to the Works Manager Online website ready for monitoring the progress of the contract from when the contractor moves to site to its completion.

Works Manager Online is built with WordPress, a popular content management system used by more than 60million websites today (as at 2020). If you have used Facebook, WhatsApp, online newspapers, attached documents such as photographs and reports to your email and sent to a recipient, and then Works Manager Online will be familiar to you. The main difference is that the subject matter concerns the contracts given out by NPF through the Department of Logistics and Supply. The details of all the contracts would have been uploaded unto the website and you will be required only to input and submit your progress reports on each contract through the website, including pictures, videos and documents.

  • Users’ cannot change their profile. This must be done by the delegated authority.
  • If a user’s profile is compromised in any way, he/she must inform delegated authority to block access using the credentials.

Command and Zone Assignments

The purpose of Command and Zone Assignments

When a user is newly registered and is logged in to the site, the only Works Manager Online role the user can perform at that stage is to view the contracts and report details and search. The primary function of submitting reports on the progress of contracts is not granted to a newly registered user simply upon registration. Another layer of role assignments to the user is required to grant this capability. Users requiring such capability are primarily the Works Officers and Project Officers.

The User Management and Operational Data facility is where these users are granted the required roles to submit reports on the groups of contracts on their schedule.

This chapter deals with granting and revoking users the authority to submit reports on contracts. The basis is that Works Officers and Project Officers are assigned supervisory roles over contracts based on the Command and Zone structure of the Nigeria Police Force. After the NPF awards contracts, they are sited in, and managed according to, the Command and Zone structure of the Force. Accordingly, officers are assigned contracts in a command or zone to supervise. This assignment is done in the Command and Zone Assignments section.

The screenshots below show the relevant operations and a typical form template to make the assignments.

Overview of Command and Zones Assignments

The processes described in this chapter forms the second layer of protection of information concerning contracts by adding extra credibility and value to the projects monitoring information from the website. The next chapter will describe the third layer, which assigns operational roles to users.

Role Assignments

Concept of Role Assignments

The processes described here are role assignments designed to grant authority to submitting reports on contracts based on the hierarchy and designation of officers who are registered. The system is based on custom defined roles such as Works Officers, Project Officers and Force Works Officer, for example. Each custom role is assigned permissions/capabilities such as authority to publish posts and submit reports, and the capabilities granted are dependent on the command and zone assignments to take effect.

For example, the rule currently in force on the site is that only users with Works Officers role can submit reports on contracts and this takes effect only if the officer has command and zone assignments. Conversely, if the user is given command/zone assignments, the user still requires Works Officer role to be able to submit reports on those contracts in his/her command/zone assignments.

This model is based on the assumption that Works Officers who regularly visit the contracts sites are those that should generate progress reports on the contracts. A comprehensive review of procedures will define in more granular detail the philosophy of the rules of engagement as regards roles and capabilities assignments to users.

The Roles Assignment feature is integrated with the Command and Zone Assignments as the screenshot below shows, and the typical form template to make the assignments.

Monitoring the Progress of Contracts – Submitting Reports on Contracts

Recap of the motivation for Works Manager Online.

The premise for building Works Manager Online include reducing projects life cycles, assure improved contracts completion rates and, above all, eliminate incomplete and abandoned projects embarked on by the Nigeria Police Force. Works Manager Online is, therefore, designed as a project monitoring tool to monitor the progress of their infrastructure projects across the various police commands nationwide by transmitting contracts progress information (pictures, videos, written documents) via the Internet.

Therefore, a major activity that will be done through the website is generating reports and submitting them online together with supporting attachments, like pictures and videos, that capture the progress of the contracts. Written documents in electronic formats can also be attached to the online reports that are submitted from the website. Staff responsible for monitoring contracts can perform these functions from their respective stations, and in situ at the contracts’ sites, from any location in the country.

This section describes how to generate and submit online reports for the ongoing contracts through predefined forms templates. The forms are simple, concise and easy to fill and attach documents and pictures just like you do when you send information by email. Submissions of reports are done through the Contract Post.
