The main object of the Accounts and Finance Unit within the Ministry of the Public Service is similar to that in any other Government Ministry or Department. The Unit promotes greater efficiency within the Ministry since it relieves the Accounting Officer (Chief Executive Officer) of a significant amount of routine work as it relates to financial and stores matters. The function of the Unit is also to improve the system of control of public expenditure and stores (Financial Orders, 1965).
The Accounts and Finance Unit provides financial information and advice to the Chief Executive Officer that is crucial in directing other Heads of Unit in the implementation of the Ministry’s goals and objectives.
As an integral part of the Ministry’s structure, our mission at the Accounts and Finance Unit is to serve our clients with the utmost of professionalism, efficiency and effectiveness.
The team at the Accounts and Finance Unit has a clear understanding of the Ministry’s strategic goals and objectives and the role it plays in achieving those. We are committed to contribute tirelessly to achieving those goals and objectives that should ultimately result in an improved public service. The staff has the knowledge, skills and experience to successfully achieve its mission.
The Accounts and Finance Unit within the Ministry of the Public Service has the responsibility of carrying out the regular accounting activities for the Ministry which includes providing other Units with information and support required by them to carry out their assigned responsibilities.

- - salary commitments for public officers on study leave,
- - financial assistance for approved courses of training for public officers,
- - Transfer Grant/Commuting Allowance for public officers,
