The Public Service Commission (PSC) handed over a cheque of over $1.14million to the Ministry of Finance yesterday.

This was earned from rental of Government quarters during the year ended 31 December 2014.

PSC Permanent Secretary Parmesh Chand said since the inception of reforms and establishment of Trade and Manufacturing Accounts in 2011, they have over the last four years paid in excess of $4.8m into the consolidated fund as surplus fund.

“Since 2011, the Public Service Commission has been responsible for the renovation, maintenance and renting out of approximately 2500 Government quarters around Fiji,” Mr Chand said.

“These assets are very functional, ideally located and well sought after and maintenance works for Government quarters around the country remains ongoing,” he said.

Minister for Finance, Public Service, Public Enterprises and Communication, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum acknowledged PSC for their hard work.

“I would like to thank the work carried out by PSC in respect of the maintenance of the assets,”Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“What is really critical for the Government quarters outside Suva is that those public servants who go and live in those quarters must find that the quality of the property is up to standard,” he said.

Last year, a cheque of $1.1m was presented to the Ministry of Finance.
