MONROVIA: The quest to ensuring that commitments made to Liberians and international partners during his inaugural address become reality, President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has considered the launch of a policy framework on the provision of Consultancy Services in Government.

Yesterday, April 30, 2024, array of government officials joined the Liberian leader at the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Ministerial Complex in Congo Town to officially launch the Civil Service Agency (CSA) Consultancy Policy document across all spending agencies of the Government of Liberia.

President Boakai said the launch of the project, among other things, is a manifestation of progress made within the hundred-day timeframe of the government since he took state power from former President George Manneh Weah.

President Boakai maintained that the initiative presents a comparative framework that guarantees equitable opportunities for entities seeking consultancy services by standards, fairness, and transparency.

The Liberian Leader believes the new consultancy policy goal is to establish standardized procedures and benchmarks for consultancy services across the Central Government to ensure value for money.

At the launch, the President noted that the CSA Policy will cut down hiring costs across government entities.
He then thanked the CSA and partners for the policy, urging straight adherence and transparency in its implementation by the Government of Liberia.
Also speaking at the occasion, CSA Director General, Josiah Joekai, told the launching ceremony that the move will centralize the management and coordination of consultancy services across various Government agencies.

Director General Joekai: “By doing so, the Government will position itself to streamline the allocation of funds for consultancy services and ensure they address critical governmental needs, where existing staff and capacities fall short.”

He added that resources were misapplied on extended employment contracts that failed to contribute to spending entities’ operations before the initiative.
The National Consultancy Policy will maximize value for money and ensure services meet the ultimate Government’s objectives.
