Rwanda National Olympic and Sports Committee (RNOSC) has directed all Rwandan sports federations to comply and present their respective performance targets and contract reports by June 16.
RNOSC president Valens Munyabagisha revealed that all the national sports federations/associations must submit their performance contract reports without fail.
“All sports bodies are supposed to submit them on an annual basis, the purpose is to make sure they work according to plan. If you have no set targets you don’t know what you are doing and cant evaluate your work,” Munyabagisha told Rwandan press.
“Those that will not comply will not receive any financial support either from RNOSC or the Ministry (of Sports and Culture),” he added.
“They are supposed to hand them to the Ministry every January but we hope they submit by next month.”
Two years ago, all Rwandan legal sports federations signed performance contracts with the Ministry of Sports and Culture committing to develop sports and promote accountability.
“We use these contracts to gauge how the federations are running and check whether resources are being utilised effectively,” Munyabagisha said.
Out of over 34 sports federations and associations that are operating in Rwanda, only 29 are legally registered.
