She gave the charge yesterday in Abuja at the meeting of the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) with Multi-Lateral/ Development Partners on Implementation of the 2017-2020 plan.

“N60bn to N120bn should be saved from cleaning the Human Resources data on Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), N2.5bn should also be saved for digitizing content like memos, personnel records among others. 25,000 civil servants should be trained through revamped core modules, 200 future leaders should be cultivated through the Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P) among others,” Oyo-Ita said.

The strategic plan’s eight priority areas are, Re-design and Re-Launch three core training modules; launch Strategic Sourcing of Identified Skills; Institutionalize Performance Management and Launch a Salary Review and Drive Innovation in service.

Others are, Accelerate Roll-Out of Human Resource Module of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS); Launch of Efficient Productive Incorruptible Citizen Centred (EPIC) culture Transformation and Establish and Enterprise Content Management Solution.

The Permanent Secretary, Career Management Office (CMO) OHCSF, Mr Suleiman Mustapha, said the meeting was to enable PMTs interact with partners and identify areas of intervention to ensure successful implementation of the plan.
