INTRODUCTION Since its inception in 1961, KIA operated as a fully funded Government Department up to 1996, which mainly offered training for the public service. In the early 1990s, the Government commenced reforms in the public service with a view to improving service delivery. The government vide the Cabinet Memorandum of 24th Sept 2004 approved introduction and institutionalization of a Result Based Management approach in the Public Service
Introduction of Result based management in the Public service, necessitated the need for rapid transformation of KIA from a Government Department with a “business as usual’ culture to a State Corporation with a wider mandate, more autonomy and results based business orientation.
The new KIA realized that it had to play a leading role in this Public Service Reform & Development Initiative. The introduction of the Performance Contracting (PC) and the new performance appraisal system PAS (GP247 (2006), were also part of the broader Public Sector reforms aimed at improving efficiency and effectiveness in the management in the Public Service.
1.Introduction of Result based management in the Public service, necessitated the need for rapid transformation of KIA from a Government Department with a “business as usual’ culture to a State Corporation with a wider mandate, more autonomy and results based business orientation. 2.The previous work culture was such that employees waited for participants to be sent for training and if there were no participants the Government still paid staff salaries and met all other expenditures. With limited support from Government it was necessary to change the working culture.
