BPSR Partners SPARC On Community of Practice.
The Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) is partnering with State Partnership for Accountability, Responsiveness and Capability (SPARC), a programme of DFID to establish a Community of Practice.
It is a scheme on how the Federal Government can exchange knowledge on areas of expertise with State Governments and vice-versa.
Speaking at the consultative meeting in Abuja recently, the Director General of the Bureau, Dr Joe Abah said that the Bureau is engaging with many NGOs and Agencies on areas of knowledge sharing. He added that the Federal Government’s new capacity building programme, performance management initiative and employee mobility system are some programmes that the Bureau can share with State Governments.
He added that as an example, Lagos state’s wealth of experience in revenue collection strategies are also knowledge that other tiers of Government can share from.
Earlier in her address, the Deputy National Proramme Manager of SPARC, Hadiza Elayo said that SPARK in now operating in ten States of the Federation and that it is an opportunity for Federal and State linkages to foster development of a Community of Practice.
