By Dorah Gawi
The team from PSC included the Director of the National Review Division Mr. Joshua Ngawi, Principal Assessment Officer Mr. Timothy Waringe, and Principal Investigator Mrs. Ravugera Ginis.
The presentation surrounded the roles and functions of the Public Services Commission regarding Personnel Review Matters, assessment of the appointment function, and investigation with emphasis on the rights of permanent public servants and what administrative services are offered at the PSC.
The team also stressed the importance of understanding the legislations that relate to their employment as employees of the public service like the National Constitution, Public Services (Management) Act 1995 (as amended), Public Service General Orders, and other important legislations.
The inductees were able to ask questions to gain insight into some grey areas that they were not familiar with in regard to processes and procedures of the public service.
PSC commended the Office of Censorship for carrying out this very important program for their new hires adding that the induction program is a mandatory requirement for all public servants to undertake as instills a sense of pride in the mission and values of the public service and equips new officers with the foundational understanding of the processes and procedures within their organization and that of the National Public Service as well.
