SMPA is an institution that embraces change. As a public sector think tank, we promote dialogue and we understand that diversity is the bedrock of our democracy. We challenge public sector professionals to be part of the solution and promote a culture of continuous learning for a better Somalia.
SMPA meets the growing demand for professional service delivery in the public sector. The institute plays a central role in moving Somalia towards a knowledge-based society, coordinating training efforts in offices, ministries and agencies. This way we ensure a uniform approach to customer service across the public sphere.
People increasingly choose a career in the public sector, but the changes taking place in our society mean that the demands made on public servants are also progressively higher. Accountability, efficiency and transparency have become key words permeating the public service. Public sector employees are expected to manage, innovate and interact with the public, displaying empathy, honesty and competence.
The purpose of SMPA is to transform the public sector in Somalia through improving management, leadership and professional competencies. It also aims to foster a climate of purpose, values and professional traditions amongst public sector employees.
