SRC held sensitization workshops on job evaluation for Public Universities, Research Institutions & Tertiary Educational Institutions sector on 2nd and 3rd February, 2017. The workshops targeted Vice Chancellors, Heads of Research Institutions, and Heads and Principals of Tertiary Educational Institutions.

In her opening remarks, the Chair informed participants that the delay in conducting job evaluation for the sector was because the Commission had encountered some contractual challenges. “However, the Commission has since surmounted the challenges and had contracted PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to carry out the job evaluation for the sector,” she noted.

Participants were sensitized on the various aspects of job evaluation including; why it is important, the tool to be used, the factors to be evaluated and the action plan, among others. The goal of job evaluation is to ensure remuneration and benefits of public officers are objectively set, streamlined and harmonized while guaranteeing that the government pays a competitive remuneration that fairly competes in the global market.

Following the sensitization, the Commission will train job analysts from the various institutions in the sector. The analysts will conduct job analysis in their institutions, and also act as change and communication agents. The Public Universities, Research Institutions & Tertiary Educational Institutions sector comprises of 45 Research Institutions; 59 Tertiary Education Institutions; and 33 Universities.

It is expected that the job evaluation exercise for this sector will be completed by June 2017, in readiness for the first phase of implementation in the Financial Year 2017/18.
