There is a high expectation from public servants this year.
Personnel Management Department Secretary, John Kali, told EMTV News today, performance based contracts will be closely monitored to ensure public servants perform to what is expected by the National Government.
It was a slow start today as government business resumed today, after the shutdown period.
Although it was a slow start, with all public servants urged to work smarter this year.
Secretary Kali said public servants will need to improve leadership, performance and productivity, in response to the government’s needs under the Public Service Management Act 2014.
A direction from the National Government, which will be implemented this year, is the clock in and clock out system.
The National Government’s new direction is for all public civil servants to clock in and clock out during official hours.
All Government Departments must comply with this direction, to be driven by departmental heads, as part of their performance-based contracts.
Respective ministers and their departmental heads sign on to their performance agreements to ensure key results are achieved.
