Marijani, Ramadhani


One of the erstwhile debates in the political science milieu is over the separation of policy making from the administration. This paper attempts to resurrect the debate by contending that the establishment Tanzania Employment Service Agency (TAESA) and Public Service Recruitment Secretariat (PSRS) was politically motivated and therefore hampering the smooth performance of the two institutions. Since the relationship between policy and structure is akin to the proverbial politics - administration dichotomy. Where purists try to separate the two; realists recognize the relationship between and within them; and theorists explain that no dichotomy exists where policy is concerned .This paper contend that the establishment of department, units or agencies in the Public Service should be left to the Professional policy managers with technical savvy in the area.

Key words: Quasi-autonomous Agencies, New Public Management, Recruitment, Reforms, Decentralization
