CS Kariuki Launches Crucial Strategic Documents For Public Service Transformation

CS Kariuki Launches Crucial Strategic Documents For Public Service Transformation
Nairobi May 23, 2017

Four crucial strategic documents for Public Service transformation have been launched today by the Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs, Mrs. Sicily Kariuki at the Kenya School of Government.

Speaking when she officially presided over the event, CS Kariuki said the documents aim at ensuring that public Service is well managed and delivers quality services to the public in line with the provision of the constitution.

Giving her keynote address, CS Kariuki applauded all stakeholders who made it possible for the documents and assured the attendees that, her Ministry would continue to develop sound strategies and polices towards improving service delivery at both levels of the Governments.

On the challenges of succession management, Mrs. Kariuki noted that the framework aims at developing a pool of successors that supports knowledge transfer and employee development at all levels in both National and County Public Services.

“It is also the expectation that following today’s launch, Human Resource Planning will be introduced in the Performance Management Framework at both levels of the Government and integrated in the subsequent annual performance contract guidelines for the National Government for integration by the various Ministries, Counties, Departments and Agencies,” CS Kariuki said.
The four strategic documents developed and launched by the Ministry are:
1. The Human Resource Planning andSuccessionManagement strategy
2. The PublicServiceSubstanceAbuseWorkplacepolicy
3. A reviewedPublic-Sector Workplace policy on HIV and AIDS
4. The Public Service Guidance and Counselling policy.

The Human Resource Planning Succession Management Strategy provides a framework to address the challenges currently being experienced in the Public Service and which have constrained efforts to deliver services at optimal levels. One of these challenges is succession management. This is manifested by inadequate human resource planning; staffing gaps at higher levels; ageing workforce; poor career management; high staff turnover in key cadres; and shortage of critical skills and competences.
The strategy aims at developing a pool of potential successors and encouraging a culture that supports knowledge transfer and employee development in the National and County Public Service.
The Public Service Substance Abuse Workplace policy was developed using the National Authority for the Campaign Against Drugs Abuse guidelines and is aimed at providing a uniform and standardized approach in prevention and management of substance abuse in the Public Service.

The reviewed Public Service Guidance and Counselling and Public Sector Workplace HIV and AIDS policies sets out standards and guidelines on the provision of Counselling and HIV and AIDS Services in the Ministries, Counties, Departments and Agencies. The review was necessitated by the need to incorporate County Governments and emerging other issues. The two policies have been aligned to the Kenya Counsellors and Psychologists Act, 2014 and Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework 2014/15-2018/19, respectively.

Ministries, Counties, Departments and Agencies are encouraged to implement the strategy and policies to improve the service delivery.

The development of the four documents is a culmination of the Capacity Assessment and Rationalization of the Public Service, (CARPS), whose overall objective is to ensure that Government functions are properly structured and staffed to facilitate transformation of the Public Service for efficient and effective service delivery at both levels of government.


In concluding her remarks, CS Kariuki urged all players to fully implement the Strategy and Policies for the realization of desired objectives.
Others who spoke were Public Service Commission chairperson Prof. Margaret Kobia, Salaries and Remuneration Commission Chair Sarah Serem, Principal Secretary for Public Service and Youth Affairs, Lillian Mbogo-Omollo and the Kenya School of Government Director General Dr Ludeki Chweya.
