The Ministry of Civil Service will be responsible for the overall strategy regarding all civil service in Fiji.

Minister for Finance Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the new ministry will be a lot more leaner.

“Under the Constitution, currently the Permanent Secretary and the Ministers of the individual ministries hire, recruit people and advertise which has been decentralized.

“But obviously as in other jurisdictions, we have certain standards that needs to be maintained. You can’t have a Permanent Secretary hiring relatives.

“They need to advertise and how to advertise, what should be the criteria for appointment, all that needs to be centralized.

The Ministry of Civil Service will also be responsible for looking at emoluments across the board.
