The Programme was set up in 2005 to create records and rehabilitate specifically personnel records which may have fiduciary implications but most were destroyed during the war. The programme was part of the creation of HRMO and for implementing sound records management across the Public Service.

The team has completed the following projects:

  • Teacher’s Records (2012/13)– As a significant first, created personnel files for teachers and linked the files To Payroll data at the Accountant General’s Department; conducted a Biometric Verification and precisely located schools through GPS technology; rehabilitating the Records office at the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology.
  • Ministry of Health & Sanitation (MoHS) 2010- Re-organised and strengthened records infrastructure for personnel and payroll records at MoHS, for sustaining payroll integrity as part of the Ministry’s Health Project and Attendance Improvement.
  • Civil Service personnel and Payroll Verification 2008 – this project captured accurate data on the Civil Service workforce, capacity levels and more importantly evidence for eventually right-sizing the Civil Service
