The Parliamentary Committee on Delegated Legislation has approved the new PSC regulations 2020 which were presented to Parliament on 11th February 2020.
The committee chaired by Uasin Gishu women representative Gladys Boss Sholei approved the document during the committee sitting on Tuesday 25th February 2020. This paves way for the implementation of the regulations to operationalize the PSC Act 2017.
The regulations provide further clarity and give full effect to the mandate of the Commission in line with Section 92 of the Public Service Commission Act 2017.
They also provide a framework for proper management of the public service through standards and criteria for appointment, promotion, discipline and removal of staff in the public service; form and method of keeping records under the Public Service Act; and criteria for reviewing the qualifications of persons holding offices in the public service.
