PNG's PM signals move to performance-based public service contracts
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 4 February 2020
“Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister has signalled a move towards a performance-based system within the public service.
“James Marape revealed the move at the launch of government's Annual Operation Plans.
“Mr Marape said the government would introduce contract-based agreements for public servants.
“These would be the basis for evaluating performance and would include incentive-based measures.
“The cash-strapped government is looking to introduce a variety of reforms, especially in a public sector that has been ailing and inefficient for decades.
“Mr Marape said the government wanted to make available and allocate land as performance-based incentives to public servants who contributed largely in revenue, through personal income tax.
"Personal Income Tax is currently our leading revenue-maker instead of corporate income tax.
"We will free up land for every public servant and missionary, who have rightfully served our country," Mr Marape said.”
