pscThe Citizen reports that the state of Gauteng’s public service is to come under the spotlight in a report to be published by the Public Service Commission (PSC).  

It has already circulated a questionnaire to all government departments.  PSC provincial commissioner Michael Seloane explained:  “We have given provincial government departments until Friday to respond and make submissions to the PSC.  The report will cover ethics, integrity, human resource management, labour relations and access to information, among others.”  Established in terms of the Constitution, the PSC has a mandate to promote good values, principles and adherence to governance.  Seloane said they were concerned about nonperformance in some departments of the provincial government.  The Department of Health, which was this week exposed for its failure to spend a massive R559 million on capital assets in the past financial year, is among the Gauteng departments to be probed.
