PSM Bemoans Ministries’ lack of adherence

Headlines PSM Bemoans Ministries’ lack of adherence

The Public Service Management Division (PSMD) has observed that most government ministries did not adhere to operation guidelines in their various strategic plan documents.

Public Service Management Division Director for Organisation Design and Systems, Japherson Phiri, said the division was entrusted to re-organise government ministries.

Mr. Phiri said the division was however finding it difficult to monitor the government activities because most of the ministries were not adhering to their strategic plans.

“As a division, we are entrusted with the responsibility of re-organising government ministries but this task has proved to be difficult because the ministries do not adhere to their strategic plans due to lack of funding and we also do not have a monitoring exercise in place,” he said.

He explained that most ministries attributed the failure to adhere to strategic plans to erratic funding from the Ministry of Finance and National Planning.

Mr. Phiri further said lack of a monitoring exercise by the Public Service Management Division has contributed to the lack of monitoring the ministries.

He however said the division had plans to engage consultancy services, adding that it has since started to put in place a permanent monitoring service.

  2. LPM must appoint individuals with brains in order to get the ministries functional. How can they achieve their goals and objectives if they are disorganized and not following their strategies?
