BPSR has developed a guide on “How to Manage and Reform Government Agencies and Parastatals.” This document provides practical guidance to Chief Executives of agencies and parastatals on best practice in managing government establishments. It covers issues such as Managing Boards, Procurement, Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Service Delivery and Change Management.
Interestingly, the guide includes a web-based Self Assessment Tool with which agencies can assess their own performance and set out ways to improve. BPSR has already successfully piloted the tool in the Federal Road Safety Commission and the Nigeria Communications Commission. BPSR is briefing Chief Executives of Agencies and Parastatals about the tool at a retreat holding in Lagos on 16th March, 2016, with a view to wider roll out soon afterwards.
BPSR has entered the Agency Improvement Tool in this years Public Service Innovation Award for the 2016 Commonwealth Association of Public Administration and Management (CAPAM) biennial conference holding later this year.
