AWARDS A+ TO MODERNISATION PROGRAMME



 



A review of SHG’s Public
Service Modernisation Programme (PSMP), carried out by the DFID Overseas
Territories Governance Advisor, and drawing on the implementing partner (Oxford
Policy Management) – has been recently completed. It also drew on regular
project reporting, previous annual reviews, and planning and performance
information produced by SHG.



 



The PSMP sought to develop the
policy and institutional frameworks required to deliver a range of core public
services in an efficient and effective manner. It looked at strengthening
governance, effective policy making, strategic planning and performance
management, as well as developing a comprehensive set of policies and processes
to attract, retain, manage and develop the right human resources.



 



The project was rated by
DFID as an overall A+



The concept of policy management
was also examined by the PSMP, developing guidance materials and other support
for officials and Elected Members. This has resulted in a tangible increase in
the demand for evidence as part of policy making and an increased focus on the
breadth and quality of statistics on St Helena.



 



The project made a strong
contribution to the organisational capacity in SHG to manage policy and
performance. The establishment of the Strategic Policy and Planning Unit (SPPU)
in 2010 responded directly to a project recommendation, with the Unit’s remit
expanding as experience has grown. We have seen year on year improvements in
fiscal understanding and budget cycle management.



The Director of Strategic Policy
and Planning, Susan O’Bey, commented: “We are all extremely pleased with the
A+ marking from DFID. Although considerable further work is required in the
coming months and years to build upon our success, SHG now has a much clearer
understanding of what it would like to achieve and has more robust systems and
central capacity to move towards this vision.”
