Transforming the Namibian Public Sector into a developmental and entrepreneurial system.

Welcome To NIPAM

The unprecedented growth that Namibia experienced since Independence has introduced new challenges. These include bottlenecks to transform the country into a knowledge based economy as highlighted by the National Development Plan III. In this regard, the biggest challenge involves the country’s skills base.

As a result, the Namibia Institute of Public Administration and Management (NIPAM) was established by an Act of Parliament, the NIPAM Act 2010 (Act 10 of 2010), and was officially inaugurated on 25 February 2011 by His Excellency Hifikepunye Pohamba, the former President of the Republic of Namibia.

The purpose of NIPAM is to transform the public service in Namibia through improving management, leadership and professional competencies. It also aims to foster a climate of purpose, values and professional traditions amongst public sector employees.

The Namibia Institute of Public Administration and Management (NIPAM) and the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) recently held an inception meeting to discuss the Public Sector Knowledge Management Policy development. The need for crafting such a policy stems from the increased loss of knowledge currently being experienced in the Public Sector as well as insufficient knowledge creation and application. To address these problems, the OPM approached NIPAM to embark on the development of the policy. NIPAM will soon conduct stakeholder consultations in different parts of the country to develop the procedure, the purpose of which is to improve service delivery and drive performance and innovation in the Public Sector.
