PUBLIC Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand has confirmed that the PSC has started a tracer survey of those who have benefitted from its scholarships and loans program.

"This survey is part of a comprehensive effort to identify the impact of the substantial investment that government has done in providing access to tertiary education to Fiji citizens," Mr Chand said.

"Every year, government invests up to $15million for scholarships and (student) loans.

"This survey will identify for the PSC the impact of this tertiary funding on students, their current job status and whether the program that they had been sponsored for has been relevant to their employment."

Mr Chand said the first phase of the tracer study was targeted at members of the public service with deadline for the submission of completed forms to be provided to the Public Service Commission Scholarship Unit by December 20, 2012.
