LIPA Urged To Extend Operations To Other Counties

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, October 3 (LINA) - The Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) has been urged to extend its operations to other parts of the country, rather than focus on Monrovia alone.

The call was made over the weekend by Patrick Dunor, Training Manager at the National Port Authority (NPA), during the graduation program of the Second Cycle of LIPA trainees for 2016. 

He made the statement in his remarks on behalf of institutions that nominated their staff for the training at a ceremony held on the campus of the University of Liberia on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

Dunor said as an institute that is building the human resource capacity of the country, its services will have more impact when it extends its training to other counties, including the port counties of Bassa, Sinoe and Maryland.

LIPA was established in 1969 by an Act of the National Legislature, and has the statutory mandate to provide capacity building support for sustained quality service delivery through training, research, consultancy and information services to both public and private institutions.

Since its establishment, LIPA has not extended services to any other part of the country, apart from Monrovia in Montserrado County.

“As NPA partners with you in upgrading the capacity of our staff, we will love to see you in other areas of our operation so that we will not have to move staff to Monrovia for your service,” Dunor indicated.

He then lauded his entity’s nominees for successfully utilizing the training provided by LIPA.

The 327 candidates, comprising 72 percent male and 28 percent female, received diplomas and certificates in Monitoring and Evaluation, Public Procurement and Management, Project Planning, Human Resource Management and Public Policy Analysis.

Institutions that joined NPA in nominating candidates to the 2016 second cycle training included ministries, commissions and public corporations as well as private individuals.
