By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, March 27 (LINA) –The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee has recommended that the Civil Service reform exercise currently underway be extended to the legislative and  judicial branches of government.

The committee also recommended that the National Legislature permits the Civil Service Agency (CSA) to begin assessing and categorizing civil servants in the Legislature to prepare a proposal for consideration and possible addition to the National Matrix.

The recommendations were contained in findings the committee submitted on salary disparities among public servants and employees to the plenary during its 22nd sitting on Thursday, March 26.

The recommendations are a result of a public hearing by the Law Reform Commission, Governance Commission and Civil Service Agency held on Friday, February 20, in the joint chambers of the National Legislature, according to the Liberia News Agency.

Cardinal among presentations made during the hearing was that of the CSA, which discovered problems of low performance, unsustainable wage bill, lack of system for a merit-based compensation package and difference in salaries among government civil servants.

During the hearing, the CSA recommended a pay reform and rationalization system, payroll management, organizational reforms and institution of a proper human resource management system, as instruments that will address the problems.

Meanwhile, the Liberian Senate has sent the report to committee room for perusal and to advise plenary.

The Blue Ribbon Committee, headed by Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor, was set up by the Liberian Senate on January 22 to investigate and report on issues of salary disparities among public servants and employees.

The committee, which is co-chaired by Senator J. Gblebo Brown, includes Senators J. Milton Teahjay, Geraldine Doe-Sheriff, Jonathan Kaipay and Matthew N, Jaye.

Others are Senators Nyonblee Lawrence, Alphonso Gaye and Joseph Nagbe.
