The Public Service Fale [Fale] was established in January 2020 with funding from the New Zealand Aid Programme as part of New Zealand’s Pacific Reset.
The Fale serves and facilitates the Pacific Public Service Commissioners to achieve their goals and strengthen public services for their citizens.
The Fale is governed by the Pacific Public Service Commissioners Working Group and is chaired by Hon. Luamanuvao Dame Winnie Laban. Sixteen Pacific countries are members of the Pacific Public Service Commissioners group which are the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu, with Australia and New Zealand supporting.
In July 2020, Tania Ott was appointed as Public Service Fale Deputy Commissioner. The Fale has two teams, the Secretariat and the Programmes teams servicing the region.
The work of the Fale is Pacific-led and Tania and her team are guided by their Strategy and Charter.
