THE Fiji Corrections Service is working to meet all the targets set by the government under its capital projects this year.

Finance Ministry officials toured corrections facilities in Nasinu, Suva and Naboro earlier last week to try and gauge the extent of work being carried out.

Deputy Commissioner of Corrections, Superintendent Akuila Namakadre said capital projects for 2014 included the maintenance of staff members quarters, upgrading of CCTV, fencing of the institutions, upgrading of corrections institutions, roadworks and the construction of a new piggery shed.

Supt Namakadre said the tour was also to highlight the implementation of capital projects that had been carried out on the ground.

"Our main target now is to utilise the 60 per cent budget as part of the Public Sector Investment Program criteria and we are working round-the-clock to fully implement all our projects on the ground," he said.

He said Finance Ministry officials were also notified of some of FCS' requests for next year.

Supt Namakadra said the capital projects were in line with the FCS annual corporate plan of maintaining safety and security, improving infrastructure, improving rehabilitation, improving corporate services and improving the bakery, piggery and poultry among other commercial entities.
