After the President’s address, a team was put together to produce a concept paper for the establishment of the college. The concept paper endorsed the President’s idea to establish a modern college to train public servants at the entry level, junior management, middle management and senior management levels. The paper also outlined how the College should be structured and managed as a semi-autonomous institution.

The paper stressed the important of employing qualified and experienced staff and the acquisition of modern training equipment and materials. It also emphasise the establishment of enabling environment to motivated staff, including remuneration which must be seriously considered to attract and retain the best staff.
