Ghana’s petroleum revenue watchdog, the Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC)
has launched a new identity with the introduction of a new logo, a data dashboard and a
redesigned website.

PIAC, which is the statutory body with oversight responsibility for the management and use of
Ghana’s petroleum revenues, said the decision to upgrade its communications channels is
hinged on introducing the public to different aspects of its work.

The Chairman of the Committee, Professor Kwame Adom-Frimpong, explained that for its
corporate logo, which used to be the Coat of Arms with its name beneath, the new logo has key
elements like an oil rig, oil drop and the Ghana Cedi sign to reflect what PIAC does and its role
within the petroleum revenue management space.

“PIAC’s corporate colours; Black which signifies crude oil and Gold which stands for wealth, are
also reflected in the new logo, and the Committee’s modified logo shows that it plays a key role
in ensuring that revenues from the production of crude oil are utilised in a manner that benefits
all citizens,” he said at the launch event held in Accra on August 16, 2023.

Touching on the redesigned website, the PIAC Chairman noted that the website will serve as a
key tool to engage the public with its reports, statistics and activities.

“The redesigned website is a reflection of the Committee’s attempt to intensify its public
outreach and improve the visibility of PIAC and its work, as well as take feedback,” he said.
Prof. Adom-Frimpong also said the introduction of a Data Dashboard by PIAC is to help provide
easy access to information on Ghana’s petroleum sector to the public.

He noted that the Data Dashboard comprises of an interactive platform which illustrates
statistics on oil and gas production, receipts and how these receipts are allocated and

“The Dashboard will serve as a hub for all required petroleum statistics, and the introduction of
these tools is in a bid to better serve citizens with the requisite information needed to promote
transparency and accountability in the petroleum revenue management space.”

At the launch event, a Deputy Finance Minister, Dr John Kumah lauded PIAC on the new
developments and urged them to continue to deliver on its mandate, especially with its
advocacy and series of public engagement on the country’s petroleum revenue management.
He emphasized that government remains committed to ensuring that PIAC is able to deliver on
its mandate in an efficient and independent manner.
