DPM to trial time keeping system

The Department of Personnel Management will be the first department to implement a time keeping system to monitor the attendance and punctuality of public servants.

Public Service Minister, Elias Kapavore, announced this today during a hand-over take-over ceremony.

Kapavore takes over the role as Public Service Minister after Sir Puka Temu was appointed Health Minister.

He told public servants during the event that as the department responsible for the appointment and conduct of public servants in the country, it was necessary for them begin the roll out of the time keeping system.

Temu said he is proud of the achievements he, with the support of DPM Secretary, John Kali, and senior public servants, achieved during his tenure as the Minister for Public Service.

Temu said there were many other goals he had but hopes they can be taken on by Kapavore.

Secretary Kali as well as his senior management all pledged to work alongside Kapavore to transform the public service for the betterment of the country.
