The Chairman of Plateau State Internal Revenue Service (PSIRS), Mr. Arlat Dashe, on Monday said that the capacity building training for executives of the revenue agency was organized as part of the board’s efforts to reposition it for improved revenue collection following its recent restructuring.
Dashe, made this disclosure at the opening session of a 3-day training for the executive chairman, directors, deputy directors and assistant directors held in Jos.
He said: “There is a recent restructuring and the training will help make staff fit into various job description that the restructuring has created.
“This category of directors need to know what is expected of them based on the new organogram”, the chairman added.
While expressing optimism that the training will improve the operations of the revenue service and boost the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), Dashe identified technology as key in all the service training processes as it would be used to connect various ministries and local governments for easy revenue assessment and collection.
He charged the trainees to take advantage of the capacity building initiative by ensuring that the knowledge gained is stepped down in their various departments.
