The Public Service Systems Review Taskforce which Government announced on Thursday February 19, held its first meeting in Lilongwe, marking the first day of the 90-day assignment.
The Taskforce wants to review and restructure the three Government systems of Allowances, Procurement, and Employment Contracts as mandated by President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera.
“Realising the urgency of the task at hand, the Taskforce members have agreed and committed to deliver a comprehensive recommendation report within the stipulated 90 days but will be reporting progress and making recommendations on quick-wins,” said the Spokesperson in the office of Vice President Pilirani Phiri.
