As part of efforts towards increasing the agency’s efficiency in checkmating substandard goods in the country, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has disclosed its plans to adopt Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

This was one of the outcomes of the organisation’s strategic management retreat held in Calabar, Cross Rivers State, recently.

According to the communique issued at the retreat, the agency reiterated its commitment to give automation of its services high priority.

The Director General, SON, Mallam Farouk Salim, stated that the organisation has also developed its strategic plan for 2021 to 2024 to guide its programmes and actions geared towards achieving its set goals and targets.

Salim stated that SON would institute an efficient, open, transparent and effective performance measuring mechanism, as well as a reward and sanction programme to ensure accountability and consequence management.

He stressed that a staff recognition and reward programme will be put in place before the end of 2021.
