Government, Counties to embark on public service staff audit
14 July 2014, 13:05
Nairobi - The government will embark on a staff audit that will see a shake-up in the current public service at both national and county level.
The move will seek to ensure that there is a serious re-think and evaluation of staff to stop wastage as well as ensure efficiency.
The rationalization process will lead to re-deployment, transfer and retrenchment of staff by November this year.
Devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru says the rationalization exercise is expected to be completed by November and expects the results to be implemented by April next year.
" It is a process that will see changes in the public service to ensure first of all there is normal staff levels and further to enhance productivity, she said.
The move will also see many staff retrenched, in what she calls a much needed exercise.
" It is important that we have a public service that is not only thin but reliable and efficient, she added.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has on several occasions said that there is need to ensure the government is reliable and spends little on salaries and remuneration.
The president had earlier said that there was a huge scam in government with wastage in excess of KES 2 Billion.
