The Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) and the Public Service Commission (PSC) have strengthened ties signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

It was signed on Tuesday, 21 January, at the institution’s headquarters in Bloemfontein.

The agreement will provide a framework for collaboration between the two parties, enabling them to improve public administration through knowledge sharing, capacitation and sharing of facilities as well as other resources related thereto.

Prof. Henk de Jager, vice-chancellor and principal, said this signalled the institution’s commitment to enhancing the quality of the public services in the country, adding that the MoU was also aligned with the university’s vision of engaging with the community for mutually beneficial development.

In terms of the partnership, the PSC has agreed to share their reports with CUT students in ensuring that there is practical relevance in research contributions.

Both entities also have agreed that the MoU should at least include among others, joint research on publications, research activities and programmes with high impact and relevance, share best practices on governance, strengthen collaboration on community services, enhance visibility, relevance and impact of this partnership.

“MoU was key for capacitation of the South African government and governance to improve service delivery and the lives of the people”, said Dr Henk Boshoff, Commissioner: Public Service Commission.
