The aim of the manpower assessment exercise was to determine the manpower requirements of the RRA to enable the latter to fulfill its mandate. The main objectives of the exercise were to:

(i) determine the needs of the organisation in terms of human resources;

(ii) ascertain that human resources are performing duties as prescribed in the schemes of service;

(iii) assess whether the human resources are judiciously and fully utilized in terms of service delivery, allocation of duties and responsibilities; and

(iv) come up with findings.

2.2 DATA COLLECTION 2.2.1 SOURCES OF DATA USED Both primary and secondary data have been used for this exercise. Primary data have been collected from duly filled-in questionnaires from the population, a representative sample across grades from each Commission. Secondary data have been primarily obtained from the Civil Establishment (Rodrigues Regional Assembly) Order 2011, the Programme-Based Budget (PBB) 2011 for the Rodrigues Regional Assembly, the Pay Research Bureau (PRB) Report 2008 (Vol II, Part IV), schemes of service of posts on the establishment of the RRA, websites of the RRA, reports submitted by officers of the RRA and official figures from the Central Statistical Office. 2.2.2 POPULATION & SAMPLING METHOD The focus of attention in the exercise was employees across all grades on the establishment of the RRA which amounted to some 3000 as at 20 June 2011, ending period of the exercise.
