Public Service Commission's Commissioner Michael Seloane explains the Quarterly Report on the State of the Public Service.

Public Service Commission releases the Quarterly Report on the State of the Public Service for the period 01 January to 31 March 2018.

The report looked at the nature of the human resource capacity and the national anti-corruption hotline.

Public Service Commission's Commissioner Michaeeal Seloane says the report found that with the human resource capacity in the public service, it became aware that the number of public servants still sits around 1.3 million.

And of those, our observation is that in the last quarter from 1 January to 31 January, there have been more appointments than terminations.

Michael Seloane, Public Service Commission's Commissioner

And as far as appointments are concerned, there were 12 072 appointments and then in the same quarter, 8059 left the system. So generally the number is around 1.3 million.

Michael Seloane, Public Service Commission's Commissioner

He adds that there has been a slight improvement if you add the third quarter, quarterly bulletin, it indicated that the Eastern Cape was still the highest in terms of vacancies.

He says the employment rate in public works and sports and recreation is really concerning.

Because it [Public Works] really deals with the infrastructure of government and a vacancy rate of 40% generally is not acceptable. The acceptable rate in terms of the regulation is 10% or under. And this one is at 40%.

Michael Seloane, Public Service Commission's Commissioner
