What we did:
Under the World Bank funded Public Service Modernisation Project (PSMP), we are supporting the Government of Lesotho to undertake a nationwide Biometric & Payroll Census (BPC), to verify ~50,000 public officers in 27 ministries (all except the Lesotho Defence Force and National Security Service) at national and local levels. The result will be to improve the integrity of human resources and payroll data, through the development of a new BPC database. Our database will interface seamlessly with existing Ministry of Public Service and Ministry of Home Affairs databases, complementing the ongoing national registration exercise by the latter. We are developing secure, bespoke tools for data collection, verification, analysis, reporting and integration.
