The Department of Personnel Management in partnership with the Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to progress the Certificate in Human Resource Business Process into a course of its own at PILAG starting next year.
“We are the agents of translating the policies that we have and this Certificate in Human Resource Business Process is all about enabling people to understand what is right and what is wrong,” said PILAG CEO Michael Barobe.
According to DPM Secretary, this MOU covers everything that both partners have been working on for years and this MOU is for the next 5 years and is subject to review along the way.
“I think this is long outstanding. We waited for this for a long time but this finally here, the fruit of it. We are going to witness the signing of this MOU on the roll-out and delivery of the HR Business Process between the two agencies and other related activities in this MOU,” said Secretary Sansan.
CEO Barobe added that there are backlogs of people down at provinces and districts who do not really understand the public service General Orders. DPM is blamed for those officers their mistakes so DPM and PILAG are here to iron some things out for them to understand out there as managers on the ground.
“This is one course where all government agencies must come on board and take part. The first roll-out will be in Morobe Province in 2020 in partnership with DPM,” said CEO Barobe. Secretary Sansan mentioned the distinction between DPM and PILAG. DPM is the policy developer while PILAG is the delivery arm to deliver these public service short courses.
