FIJI is the chair of the Pacific Public Service Excellence Award Working Group.

PSC chairman Josefa Serulagilagi said the basis of selection was largely in view of Fiji's proven track record and experience in running such a program for the country's public service.

Mr Serulagilagi said the working group would network to explore various possibilities and then make a proposal for consideration at the 11th Pacific Public Service Commissioners Conference which would be held in Samoa in September.

"Fiji was proud to be chosen as the chair of the working group at the 10th Public Service Commissioner's Conference held in Majuro, Marshall Islands in August last year," he said in a statement.

He said the PSC would work closely with the conference secretariat and other members of the working group in putting together a framework for recognising excellence in regional public service delivery.

"The public service commissions are keen to examine and possibly adopt such initiatives which will enhance service delivery standards in their respective countries as well as the region as a whole," he said.

Mr Serulagilagi said two working groups would focus on the terms of reference and the state of the service.

Other members of the group are public service commissioners from PNG, Samoa, Palau, Marshall Islands and Vanuatu.
