PSC help

Ana Madigibuli
Friday, January 18, 2013

TWO new policies — Compliance and Monitoring Policy and Evaluation Policy — have been issued by the Public Service Commission on Wednesday this week.

The new policies would help the Commission's Compliance, Monitoring and Evaluation Unit in overseeing how ministries and departments are applying the commission's delegated powers, policy decisions and reform initiatives. PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said quarterly reports would be provided to the Commission on how ministries and departments had been complying with the respective workplace policies and procedures.

"They will be conducting pre-assessment interviews, inspections, surveys and reports to evaluate the impact of policies and identify outcomes on the performance status of ministries and departments," he said.

Under the Compliance and Monitoring Policy, PSC staff would be checking on how policies, rules and regulations are being implemented service wide.

The Evaluation Policy would see assessment reports being prepared on the impact of the Commission's guidelines.

Mr Chand said both those policies were meant to bring about improvements in accountability, performance and professionalism in ministries, departments and agencies.
