As part of the effort to reposition the then NPC (now MBEP) as a pacesetter organization and improve service delivery, the need for a reform cannot be over emphasized. The reform had become necessary in view of the increasing role of the Commission in the economic management of Nigeria and the need for effective performance of its workforce. This will enable it transform into an enviable and result oriented organization. A major part of the process is the transformation of Public Infrastructure Utility to the Department of Infrastructure.
