The Governing Council
The Centre has a ten-member
Governing Council which includes the Director-General as the Chief
Executive Officer. However, the Governing Council of the Centre was
dissolved in August 1994 together with Governing Councils of other
government parastatals and was yet to be reconstituted by the government
as at the third quarter of 2000.
The Governing Council
provides the main policy guidelines for the operations of the Centre.
The Council is composed of a non-executive Chairman and nine other
members who are from government ministries and parastatals, the university
community and the organized private sector.
The Director-General, who is a member of Council and the Chief

the Centre's research and consultancy programmes. The department is also
responsible for materials development, publications and library matters.
and Finance Department
The functions of
Administration Department comprise general administration, support
services, personnel and accounts.
In line with the philosophy
guiding its establishment, the staff strength of the Centre is thin.
The current total staff strength of the Centre is 113.
The academic departments have a total of 21 officers, including the
Director-General. The Centre
also uses the services of external resource persons/short-term consultants
in the delivery of some of its training programmes.
Among the administrative staff, 35 belong to the senior cadre; the
remaining 57 junior staff.
and Expenditure Pattern
The Centre is moving strongly
towards a self-sustaining status as some of its training programmes are
close to being self-financing through payments for commissioned training
programmes and course fees. A
significant share of the Centre's resources is contributed by government
and external donor agencies. Much
of the external funding goes into institution building programmes like
supply of computers and accessories, purchase of audio-visual equipment,
training materials development and staff development programmes;
government budgetary support is channelled mainly into infrastructural
development and personnel costs.
The Centre is currently
located at Nos. 1 & 3, Oba Akinyele Avenue, Old Bodija, Ibadan.
Its permanent office is being located at the Federal Capital
Territory (FCT), Abuja. Meanwhile,
the Ibadan location has been adapted to an office and training centre.
In addition to the two existing structures on the location, the
Centre has constructed: a 31-room office block; four seminar rooms; three
computer laboratories; a tea/cocktail room; a relaxation room for course
participants and a research library.
Virtually all the Centre's courses are
delivered at this location. When
fully developed, the permanent site in Sheda, Abuja, is expected to have
hostel facilities for course participants among other modern facilities.
The four seminar rooms and
three computer laboratories in the Centre provide space and opportunity to
run up to seven courses concurrently.
Each seminar room is equipped with modern training aids and
equipment which include overhead projectros, LCD projectors, white boards
and flip charts, and public address systems.
The computer laboratories are equipped with over 60 desktop
computers for which are all used exclusively for training.
The library is well stocked with up-to-date books and journals
which are accessible to participants.
The library opens between 8.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. each week day.
Also because of the Centre's heavy use of paper for lecture and
research, in particular, the Centre has a number of reliable photocopiers.
The availability of
uninterrupted power supply is essential for the delivery of the Centre's
training programmes and related activities. The Centre has, therefore, installed a step-down transformer,
one giant electricity generating plant, and two small generating plants.
The Centre is also connected to the internet.
The Centre has adequate and
regular supply of water to all offices and training blocks, from the
borehole sunk in the office premises.
Other Physical Assets
The Centre maintains a fleet of vehicles, many of which are dedicated to the delivery of trianing programmes and research activities. These include three participants' buses and a number of Peugeot Station Wagon Cars. The Centre also maintains a variety of office equipment that are effectively deployed to achieve of its set objectives.
