Parmesh Chand

ONGOING REVIEWS OF PUBLIC SERVICE PERFORMANCE. Public Service Permanent Secretary Parmesh Chand has announced that the work of two large ministries, Strategic Planning, National Development and Statistics, and Information will be reviewed this year. Particular attention will be given to governance, delegation, policy development, compliance, monitoring and evaluation and quality standards. Over the past two years the following ministries and departments have been reviewed: Education, Health, Works, Transport and Public Utilities, Fisheries and Forests, Agriculture, Public Service Commission, Youth and Sports, and the Office of the Chief Registrar.

Right-sizing could result in outsourcing, corporatisation, management contracting out, mergers and amalgamation. Where established officers become redundant, they will be redeployed elsewhere. Un-established staff will be paid a redundancy amount determined by Cabinet. .Read more on FijiLive.

This is good news that the UN is supporting the military coup in Fiji? It follows their other successes in countries such as Syria.
