The public sector in its broadest sense is involved in most facets of the lives of all individuals residing within its boundaries or who have in some way links with the country. This implies that Government's responsibilities are no longer limited to defence, security and economic stability. Perhaps the most complex duties concern the social aspects of human beings residing in or concerned with a country. Public administration is the crucial vehicle government has at its disposal to provide services to society. The administrative system, therefore, supports government policy and also informs government initiatives and policy. It could be argued that the fabric of societal life is woven by the public administrative system and that the quality of life within a country is largely determined by the quality of its administrative system.
