UPDF Officers Sensitized on Government Operations and Service Delivery

35 senior UPDF officers from the National Defense College-NDC, are undertaking a five day training on the functionality of different government agencies and ministries, to enhance their knowledge in effective service delivery to the targeted communities.

The officers are slated to graduate next week after a one-year course in national security, and this interface with different state actors is aimed at preparing their mindsets for future managerial deployments both within the force and other government ministries.

The ongoing five-day symposium being conducted at the Jinja city’s based Civil Service College, has had facilitators from different government ministries to share work experiences with the UPDF officers on the “viable measures of championing effective service delivery”.

While making his remarks on Wednesday, the NDC commandant, Maj. Gen. Francis Okello says that the student officers have undertaken course units in government policies, and management of state agencies, so their minds have been sharpened on the national, regional and global security issues, therefore, interface with operators in key government ministries is key in fostering knowledge on service delivery.

Okello notes that they liaised with the public service ministry and the prime minister’s office, to organize an insightful information-sharing symposium on the challenges faced by different government entities, in their quest to ensure service delivery and how best they can be handled to the benefit of the wider community.

The assistant commissioner of CSC, John Bosco Bananuka says that they sourced facilitators from the different sectors ranging from health, education, agriculture, works and transport, with an aim of widening the officers’ knowledge of the policies spread across to boost service delivery in the respective government ministries.
