The Contract System of Employment for Senior Government Officials

Experiences from Africa

By Joan Nwasike, Philip Osei

This publication reviews the effects of the reforms implemented under the 'new public management' programme on the roles and conditions of service of permanent secretaries and directors in Botswana, Ghana, Uganda and Zambia. These countries introduced the contract system of employment, and their experience highlights the importance of acknowledging context in considering the implications of the contract system, and the challenges of implementation.
