THE Department of Personnel Management has launched the Public Service long-term development plan to improve its performance to deliver service more effectively, secretary Taes Sansan says.
She said the 30-year plan was the first long-term “Human Resource Development Strategic Plan” for the public service since independence to implement from 2020 to 2050.
She said a lot of sector plans had been developed to support the implementation of Papua New Guinea’s Vision 2050 after it was launched in 2009.
“Public service was unable to implement its function effectively because it was mainly operating on the government of the day’s fatal plans and policies over the years,” she said.
“This was difficult for us to implement, the restructure of the Public Service to meet the government and people’s expectations.”
Sansan said the key priorities and outcomes of the PNG Vision 2050 on the Public Service had demanded cultivating, organisational ethics and work culture in the department to ensure efficient and effective delivery of service at the national, provincial and district levels.
She said the policy was a milestone achievement for the Government and the Public Service Department.
Sansan said continuous complaints about the lack of service delivery was the result of different factors.
“The plan was the way forward to make changes to ensure Public Service is responsive and efficient in service delivery,” she said.
