PUBLIC Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand launched the commission's 2013 Annual Corporate Plan at Berkley Crescent yesterday.
Mr Chand said the annual corporate plan had a number of initiatives, work activities and deliverables which would help to bring about further improvement in efficiencies, productivity and service delivery of the PSC.
"It also pursues government's commitment to reforming and modernising the civil service," Mr Chand said.
"With the introduction of a performance management pay system in 2013, I'm certain that every staff wishes to be paid a bonus," he said.
Mr Chand said the onus was on PSC staff to achieve the targets set out in their individual work plans.
"As an organisation we're servants of the public, hence we must be always mindful that we're here to fulfil that commitment.
"If we all fulfil our mission of going that extra mile in everything we do for the public service and committing to realising our vision of being the icon of leadership, integrity and service delivery, 2013 will be another successful year for PSC." Key targets in the 2013 PSC annual corporate plan include the placement of 20 volunteers under the Fiji Volunteer Service, the upgrading of 80 government quarters, 1000 scholarships and loans to be awarded to those below the poverty line, provision of 100 local training programs for civil servants and successful implementation of the service excellence awards.
