Public Sector Reforms have improved service delivery by civil servants in Kenya. Performance contracts have particularly assisted transform business operations in Government and made it easier for people to access services. Under the new constitution success of a devolved government will depend on the ability of county structures to identify development priorities and develop programmes that ensure effective service delivery.
UNDP has been working closely with countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to build the capacity of Governments in Public Administration. Kenya, as a result, received the coveted UN Public Service Award in 2007 for its tremendous gains in public sector reforms.
To increase the capacity of UNDP Governance Practitioners in Sub-Saharan Africa and directly impact the skills of Government Public Administrators, UNDP will be hosting a three day workshop from 15 – 17th February at the Safari Park Hotel to share best practices in the implementation of transparent, efficient and service oriented Local Administration.
In particular the meeting will seek to;
• The progress in performance management in the public service in Kenya.
• Understand the AU charter on values and principles of Public Service and its relation to the Kenyan context;
• Analyse, debate and share perspectives on how performance management can better support service delivery and accountability within key service delivery areas to optimize inclusive development and resource effectiveness;
• Analyse the challenges, merits and demerits of performance management;
• Apply performance management in various scenarios including local government service, education and health sectors;
• Share experiences of various countries and institutions that have applied performance management;
You hereby are invited to provide coverage at the official opening of the workshop and profile the gains and anticipated outcomes of the public sector reforms in Kenya.
