Gov’t reviewing job descriptions, pay and performance at Forestry Commission


The Government has established a task force to restructure the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) to better align it with the Government’s Green State agenda.

In a statement Tuesday, the Commission noted that the task force has been established jointly between the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and the Board of Directors of the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) in view of the national objective of moving towards a ‘green’ economy and the consequent realignment of critical agencies of State.

The team will be required to examine and evaluate current job descriptions and performance standards, personnel procedures, conditions of employment and appointment, wages and salary structures and payroll administration.

The review will further aim at improving the efficient performance and effective management of the commission by identifying training and development opportunities for staff, the statement noted.

The task force is expected to submit to the Minister of Natural Resources a work schedule with timelines and a preliminary report that would complete this assignment no later than July 2019.

Recommendations will be submitted to the Minister, who in turn, is mandated to present a report to Cabinet.

The Convener of the task force is the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility Project Coordinator (FCPF), Clayton Hall.
