Update: 4:45PM IN an effort to improve government services the Public Service Commission will outsource some training programs identified as priority areas for training.

Public Service permanent secretary Parmesh Chand, today signed Memorandums of Agreements with four outsourced training providers who will provide up to 7 different modules of training for officers from the Government, a statement released by the Information Ministry stated.

The training providers include the University of Fiji, the Centre for Vocational and Continuing Education (CVC) of the University of the South Pacific, and private consultants such a Jagjit Singh who specialises in research and data, and Subhash Appana who is a Human Resource Consultant and Trainer, it read.

"As more powers have been delegated to the Permanent Secretaries, it allows for the Public Service Commission to focus on capacity building efforts and assisting the various Permanent Secretaries and Heads of Departments in these aspects," Mr Chand said in the statement.

Mr Chand also said the training modules were part of reforms to ensure well trained personnel who would provide a professional Public Service.
