The Housing Authority is currently operating without a Chief Executive Officer.
General Manager Finance, Poasa Verevakabau revealed this during their presentation of its 2016 annual report at the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Social Affairs.
Verevakabau says since March 2018, following the departure of former Chief Executive, Punit Sethi, the Authority has adopted a new management structure.
He adds the Housing Authority board has appointed a management committee to oversee the operational functions and current projects.
The committee consists of three members which are Iskeli Navuda, Iliesa Rakaseta and, Poasa Verevakabau.
When questioned by Opposition MP, Salote Radrodro on what impact has the change in management had on the Authority, Verevakabau says it was business as usual.
“Since the changes in the CEO role what we have noticed is that the performance is good. For the last few years, we were managing one-two projects concurrently, however, from this year we are running three projects concurrently.”
Verevakabau says the strategic direction has not been hindered due to the guidance of the board.
Nothing was revealed in regard to the appointment of a new CEO.
