Frequently Asked Questions
Primer on the Gov't Rationalization Program

2. Why do we need to rationalize government operation?

Government has to put its house in order.

Over the years, government had the tendency to over-expand and self-perpetuate in almost every area of need of society. These areas have become regular government priorities and responsibilities. This situation results in a thin spread of government resources to a variety of concerns, especially in areas where government support is highly desirable, such as peace and order, national security and social services, among others.

Government also has to keep pace with changing demands and technologies. What may have been a relevant undertaking for the government a number of years ago may no longer be necessary at the present time.

For example, certain administrative functions done in the past require a number of clerks. With the advent of computers, these same tasks may need a lesser number of personnel.

Moreover, global and private sector developments may now require different regulatory frameworks. Some areas may need new regulations while other existing regulations have become counterproductive to sector growth.

Hence, government has to review its operations to remove redundancies/overlaps/duplication and improve its operations. In addition, the people are demanding better public services and more value for their money.
