Public Service Commission and Association Of Public Accounts Committees Signs A Memorandum Of Understanding

30 June 2014

Today marks a historic moment for the Public Service Commission (PSC) and Association of Public Accounts Committees (APAC). We are therefore pleased to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between ourselves.

The purpose of the MoU is to enhance cooperation between the PSC and APAC. Likewise, provide the basis for cooperation between these two organisations in order to lay the basis for seeking ways to complement each others legal mandates and share technical information and expertise.

The PSC seeks to promote the Constitutionally, enshrined democratic principles and values of the Public Service by investigating, researching, monitoring, evaluating, communicating and reporting on public administration.
The APAC on the other hand, is an association recognised for promoting credible public financial management, accountability and good governance through effective collaborative legislative oversight.

Some of the principles that will govern the MoU to be signed include the following:

  • Each party recognises and respects the governance structures and internal processes of the other.

  • Each party shall be transparent with regard to planned activities that might potentially impact on the work of the other party and the parties shall seek ways to complement each other in the performance of their respective functions.

  • The parties shall cooperate in good faith and with honesty, integrity and professionalism, and each party shall respect the others work (whether copyrighted or not), findings and representations.

We are of the view that this relationship will be beneficial to both parties going forward.

Issued jointly by the Public Service Commission and the Association of Public Accounts Committees
