Clarify PNGIPA status
The Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration is the premier school of government for Public Servants in PNG. It is supposed to be the leader in capacity building for public servants and a role model public organization.
Senior public servants should go to PNGIPA and see what is happening out there. The place is unusually quiet and hardly any training is taking place. The gates are always locked and manned by security guards who question anyone wanting to enter the Institute.
We hear PNGIPA is becoming an Expenditure Centre for the Government. Can the Minister for Public Services and the Secretary for the Department of Personnel Management tell the public what is happening at PNGIPA?
