Opened by the Permanent Secretary for the Public Service Mr Parmesh Chand, the seminar is the first in a series of five (5) workshops targeted at senior officials from within Government. Mr Chand expressed his gratitude to the Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration (PICPA) for their continued partnership with the Public Service Commission in delivering the series of workshops. PICPA and PSC signed a Memorandum of Understanding in June and this partnership will involve up to 150 participants from various Ministries and Departments from the Fijian Public Service partaking in these workshops. Under the MOU, the Public Service Commission will provide funding in the amount of $28,297.50 to PICPA to deliver these workshops over the remainder of the year. Facilitated by Dr Desmond Amosa and a team led by Dr Subash Appana, the main objectives of the workshop are to expose the participants to best practices in HR recruitment, to allow participants to seek clarifications on their roles and responsibilities in ensuring the practice of good governance in HR recruitment process and to provide a platform for discussions on collaborative actions in the best interests of the public service in this field. Mr Chand said that with the devolution of some of the Public Service Commission’s roles under the 2013 Constitution, PSC is committed to assisting the various government agencies with the implementation of their own Human Resource Strategies through various trainings, workshops and knowledge sharing. This, he says, will ensure that all officers maintain ethical standards and adhere to proper principles and values of due process that will be beneficial to all stakeholders and the nation as a whole. Mr Chand also emphasised the importance of a transparent and coherent system demanded by any efficient public administration system. The three-day long training will involve workshops with lectures, presentations, group discussions and will include resource personnel with inputs provided from other relevant experts in the field as well. Participants were encouraged to take full advantage of these workshops to be able to be able to provide the public with an accountable and professional Public Service. -ENDS- © Copyright 2012.
