Public Service and Administration Minister, Mr Senzo Mchunu, said the training scope for the National School of Government (NSG) should be extended to include State Owned Enterprises and Municipalities.
Speaking at the NSG strategic planning meeting on Tuesday, also attended by Deputy Minister for Public Service and Administration, Ms Sindisiwe Chikunga, the Minister said the Public Administration Management Act (PAMA) may need to be reviewed to enable the NSG to fulfil its mandate of training public servants.
“Part of the training scope for the NSG should include State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and the local government into its training mandate,” he said.
The Minister said the leadership of the NSG should use the strategic planning session to focus on governance issues, the NSG role in service delivery, the difficult economic times as well as the changing political landscape.
He said it important for the NSG to align its vision and mission with the strategic vision of the sixth administration. “This calls for the NSG to have a new mission and vision to enable it to capacitate the state,” the Minister said.
