MRD begins interview process of selecting Constituency officers


The Ministry of Rural Development has scheduled interviews for various constituency positions starting on 27 to 28 June 2024.

These positions include Constituency Development Officer (CDO), Constituency Project Officer (CPO) and Constituency Accountant Officer (CAO).

The interview venue will be at the Honiara Senior High School Hall at China Town.

Details about the interview and timing have already been communicated to the shortlisted candidates.

The ministry has been very busy over the past weeks with screening and shortlisting of candidates for the interview process in compliance with Constituency Development Fund (CDF) Act 2023 and the Public Service Commission (PSC) Regulation.

A total of 572 applications were received by MRD after submissions closed on May 16, 2024. 

This was the highest figure the ministry ever noted compared to its previous normal recruitments.

The interview process and undertaking are part of the ministry’s commitment to implement the CDF Act 2023 requirements.

The ministry explained to the voters, constituents, and the public that the payment of the CDF for this financial year will be processed when the minimum standards of the CDF Act 2023 to access the funds are met. 

The ministry is working very hard to make sure this will happen as soon as practicable. 

This is because procurements of the CDF have to be made according to the CDF Act 2023, which was gazetted at the end of last year following its ascension by the Governor General.

The ministry therefore calls for understanding from voters and constituents to be patient with their Members of Parliament as due processes are being facilitated.

“Now that we have a new CDF Act, all procurements must now be according to the Act in support of the Public Financial Management Act (PFMA) 2013.”
