Director PICPA and Secretary FPSC

Public Service Commission will soon offer trainings to government ministries in the area of Good Governance in Recruitment and Selection Processes in Public Service.

The PSC today signed a memorandum of understanding with the Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration (PICPA) of The University of the South Pacific.

The MOU seeks to strengthen the cooperation between PSC and PICPA and outlines the principles to guide the PSC and PICPA in the delivery of Good Governance in Recruitment and Selection Processes workshops for the Public Service.

The MOU will foster the quality of administrative governance through the efficient design on the implementation of coherent public policy in the public service.

Public Service permanent secretary Mr Parmesh Chand said that the PSC will work with relevant permanent secretaries since all matters pertaining to Human Resource (HR) functions in ministries and departments have been devolved to them.

“It is important for us to work with the permanent secretaries and their relevant staff in building their capacity in his important area, to train them, and give them guidance then obviously there will be less chances of abuse or for that matter, weaknesses in this area.”

“We will have proper functioning system of recruitment through the due process where all aspects and criteria are being followed without compromising their standards and the expectations of Public Service,” Mr Chand said.

He highlighted that the signed contract is a step towards formalising the implementation of this program through the convening of a series of five workshops involving about 150 personnel.

Director for Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration (PICPA) Siosiua Utoikamanu said that PICPA looks forward to providing the trainings.

“We are very pleased with this opportunity to working with the PSC and we look forward to maintaining a strong working relationship going into the future,” he said.

The series of five workshops will convene in August 2014 and will be ideally for senior level staff who will be nominated by permanent secretaries and will cover all the ministries that want to participate in this program.
