PLANS and policies will suceed if the public serivce is effective and transparent.
This is the job of the Department of Personnel Management (DPM) which will be judged on these successes.
Public Service Minister Moses Maladina made these comments when launching DPM’s corporate plan 2011-15 at Crowne Plaza on Wednesday.
“I would like to acknowledge and also congratulate secretary John Kali and the staff of the DPM for your efforts in achieving this corporate plan.
“Obviously it is important for any organisation to have a corporate plan but what’s important for the DPM is that, as a central agency of the government, the department plays a vital role in the successful implementation of the government’s strategic plan.
“As the face of politics evolves, we will get a new generation of politicians and leaders who are well-travelled and educated who will be well-versed in government and business enterprises,” Maladina said.
“The demand that these people place on the public service will be different from what we have experienced in the past.
“They will be operating at a different pace, driven by world standards.
“We are currently in a transitional phase and the public service will have to embrace this transition,” he said.
He said that the corporate plan is aligned to the Vision 2050 and also to the development strategic plan 2010-30.
