Project Description

The TA will help public administration reforms at the state level by supporting the preparation of a medium term public sector reform plan and facilitating implementation of key elements. The core areas which may be considered in the development of the medium-term public sector reform plan include (but may not be limited to): (i) reorganization of government structure, based on functional review of government units, to better reflect key functions and responsibilities; (ii) support for corporate planning processes, including identification of core activities and resource requirements; (iii) redevelopment of job descriptions and consideration of realignment of positions to promote flexibility across functional areas; (iv) rationalization and simplification of the job grading and pay structure; (v) unification of jobs under the SSCs and exempt positions into the PSS; (vi) reinvigoration of the system for strengthening merit based human resource management; and (vii) consideration of capacity development and training requirements.
