An Information session for all line agencies targeted at completing data cleansing of the Government Payroll system by June this year was conducted on the 15, 17 and 19th of March this year.
Department of Personnel Management Secretary Ms Taies Sansan has issued a circular instruction to all line agencies both at the national and provincial level to take heed of the circular instruction as it is in line with various NEC decisions and the Special General Orders 11 and other undertakings to address issues of over expenditure in Bill Pay and in implementing a number of strategies across the Public Sector.
Ms Sansan said, DPM through Organisation Staffing and Personnel Emoluments Audit Committee (OSPEAC) has been reviewing, assessing and reporting on agencies performance in terms of the Human Resources and Personnel Emoluments.
“With the ongoing exercise, the department is also of the view that all Public Sector agencies must understand the national governments expectations. The sessions have enabled DPM, through OSPEAC, to communicate to the Public Service on the decisions of the government and how they can individually contribute positively to achieving desired outcomes.
Therefore it is critically important that all representatives of all public service agencies must attend the Information Session”.
Ms Sansan said, the purpose of the forum was to disseminate important information to public sector agencies through their HR Personnel.
Ms Sansan has called on Provincial Administrators to include their Provincial Education Advisors. This was specifically for teachers. This was the targeted audience for this year’s first quarter staffing and establishment review. Other critical issues were discussed as well at that forum.
Agencies were required to bring their approved structures/establishments comparison tables and proposed structures (if any) to the forum. The forum was broken up into various sectors; health, community & culture, education, economic, transport, law and order & administration to attend the 3 respective days on which the forum was held.
