Public sector gearing for efficiency

The public sector is gearing to improve efficiency and effectiveness by following the ISO 9001:2008 international standard.

This will help provide high quality service to the public, Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI) Director General/CEO Dr. Lalith N Senaweera said.

"To improve efficiency and effectiveness in Government bodies, a proper mechanism within institutions has to be implemented with basic guidelines. Therefore, several public entities have obtained SLSI certification," Dr. Senaweera told the Daily News. Kandy, Galle, Matara and Kuruneagala District Secretariats, Board of Investment (BoI) and the State Engineering Corporation have obtained the ISO 9001:2008 certification, SLSI is looking for several other public entities including Provincial Councils and other Government institutions to obtain certification, he said.

It will assess the whole system of the organisation and those organisations afterwards will implement best practices to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of such organisations to serve the public, he said.

Dr. Senaweera said ISO 9001:2000 standard has been revised to ISO 9001:2008 and all manufacturing and service sector entities should make changes to fit into the new version. Therefore, to retain the certification status, the time frame is one year from the date of the new publication of the standard which is July 15 this year.

Dr. Senaweera said over 200 companies are in the process of adopting the new system. SLSI is attracting more manufacturing and service sector entities including the public sector to obtain this system to penetrate into international markets, reduce the cost and boost the image, in the business arena.

He said changing over to a new version SLSI users will be added to the annual payments and the new companies will have to invest Rs. 300,000 for three years. Therefore, this management system is a set of interrelated or interacting elements set up to establish organisations policy and the quality of the business where the company is involved, he said.
