“In spite of several circulars and advertisements in the print, radio and Television requesting employees to update their records online, some employees are yet to update their IPPIS records via the on-line Portal.

“The on-line records update is a key requirement for the implementation of the HR Module of IPPIS and must be completed by every employee of the Federal Government to maintain their records on the IPPIS platform.

The strategic plan was inaugurated in February 2017 by Oyo-Ita to reposition the Nigerian Federal Public Service for improved service delivery.

The strategic plan has eight priority areas which are; Re-design and Re-Launch three core training modules, Launch Strategic Sourcing of Identified Skills, Institutionalise Performance Management and Launch a Salary Review.

Others are, Drive Innovation in service, Accelerate Roll-Out of Human Resource Module of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

In his remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Service Policies and Strategy Office- OHCSF, Mr Ndubuisi Osuji, said the objective of the workshop was to keep top management staff in the federal civil service abreast with the strategy and its implementation plan.

According to Osuji, the outcome of the workshop will set the direction for participants to key into the strategy for successful implementation of the plan.
