We will ensure a more effective government; improve the coordination and planning efforts of the developmental state by means of a planning entity to ensure faster change. A review of the structure of government will be undertaken, to ensure effective service delivery. An important aspect of a successful developmental state is investment in public sector workers and in turn our people expect that they execute the tasks with which they have been entrusted. This means that the right and adequate numbers of personnel should be placed in the correct positions, and where this is not the case, government should have the capacity to implement corrective measures, either through training or redeployment where warranted. Macro-organisation of the state A review of the structure of government will be undertaken, to ensure effective service delivery. Manifesto New configuration of Ministerial Portfolios implemented from 10 May DPSA is coordinating implementation of the new macro- structure of the state Assisting with legal and technical work required to effect name changes and transfer of functions Working closely with the National Treasury and Department of Public Works to support departments SON Address (1) President Zuma in his State of the Nation Address made reference to the strategic objectives of the DPSA: A developmental state requires the improvement of public services and strengthening of democratic institutions. To ensure that all three spheres - local, provincial and national - improve service delivery, we will speed up the establishment of a single Public Service. This administration will insist on putting people first in service delivery. We will ensure courteous and efficient service from front-counter staff in the provision of services in all government departments. In this era of renewal, we will move towards a more interactive government. SON Address (2) President Zuma also made reference to continued participation in the reconstruction and development of the African continent, especially, post-conflict situations Reference was also made to intensifying the South-South relations The President made it clear that the public service must respond to the economic downturn by spending public funds wisely and fruitfully and there should be no wastage and roll-overs. The DPSAs medium term strategy incorporates the SONA priorities, it responds to the challenges confronting the public service and is cognisant of the implications of the global economic crisis.
