The Director General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR), Dasuki Ibrahim Arabi, has said that he has started a master plan to digitize all its processes and implement strategies to foster inclusion in the public service.

Dasuki said on Wednesday that the Office has introduced some processes in public financial management that have made the Nigerian Federal Public Service a major driver of technology use through transparency and accountability.

He made it known at the Human Capital Strategy Forum, organized by Bratim Business School, with the theme Inclusive workplace, motivation and performance of the workforce.

Dasuki also revealed that BPSR has developed an app to allow auditors to work online through an open portal.

He identified IPPIS, the single treasury account and the BVN as some of the reforms that have helped manage the human resources aspect of his strategy, where the date of entry and exit of a public servant can be easily detected and tracked.

”We have developed an application that allows auditors to audit us online. Through the open portal, they can sit in the office of the Accountant General and audit the accounts of any ministry, department or body,” he said.

He further said that he has also developed a Civil Service strategy to improve the ability of officers from the point of recruitment, promotion and discipline.

Dasuki added that the promotion of officers in the public service will now be done based on the use of technology.

“We have just introduced performance management to hold people accountable and have developed standard operating procedures and KPIs across all government ministries, departments and agencies.

”The promotion of officers from 2021 will be based on the use of IT. They are assigned targets based on KPIs and are tracked electronically. As they work, they provide reports, and at the end of the day, a system will aggregate and grade them,” he added.
