MDAs to comply with new service rules – FG. The Federal Government directed federal ministries, departments, agencies, and parastatals, among others, to begin implementing the new Public Service Rules immediately.

According to the PUNCH, the Public Service Rules provide rules for civil servant standards and conduct, as well as disciplinary processes.

Speaking at the State House on Thursday during the unveiling of the newly revised PSR, the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, explained that the PSR was reviewed shortly before the exit of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The new Public Service Rules were revised before the end of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and in line with the Renewed Hope agenda of President Bola Tinubu, we are launching it and we expect that MDAs will begin the implementation.”

Speaking on the digitalisation agenda of the civil service, Yemi-Esan noted that extensive work was carried out to put the required mechanisms in place for a smooth transition from physical handling of tasks to electronic means.

“Following extensive work to put in place the necessary mechanisms for a smooth transition from physical task handling, I am pleased to announce that the Office of the Head of Service has gone digital with its work processes.” This means that all personal and policy files have been scanned and saved in digital format; workflow procedures are now transacted digitally within the office.

“All official correspondence, including memos, internal and external circulars, is processed electronically through the ECM Solution, and this is one of the significant milestones being celebrated today.” From a Service standpoint, all MDAs are engaged in the digitization initiative and are at various phases of execution, with a mandate for all to achieve full migration by the end of 2025.

“It’s worth noting that some MDAs have also implemented ECM solutions for their workflows.” According to an ECM Composite Readiness Survey done in May of this year, the Ministry of Transport has deployed the solution, while a number of other Ministries are on the verge of deploying the ECM, having above the 80% threshold.”
