New Bill Passed 

Parliament today (24/11/17) passed the Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance Bill with 85 votes to nil.

 

 

The Bill repeals the Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration Act 1993.

 

This means the Administrative College known as ADCOL, at Waigani, will now be changed to PILAG.

 

The passing of this Bill aligns with the Government’s strategic priorities of training and developing public sector leaders, focused on service delivery.

 

The PILAG will be an independent statutory and have its own board of management.

 

The chairman of the board will be an appointed chairman engaged through proper executive search as a fit and proper person defined in the PILAG Act.

 

However, the Institute is not a Department of the National Public Service and is not subject to the application of the Public Services Management Act 2014.

 

Meantime, the Institute has all the necessary power to do all things in connection with the performance of its functions.
