The College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS), Makerere University hosted and conducted a pilot exercise of over 6000 job applicants during the second week of January 2018. The objective of this activity was to carry out an online based aptitude assessment (e-recruitment) of all the job applicants. The assessment the first of its kind was coordinated by the Uganda Public Service Commission (PSC) and CoCIS and follows the launch of the Electronic Recruitment System (ERS) in December 2017 that allows for the automated enlistment of applicants. This form of recruitment was developed to addresses some of the administrative challenges encountered by PSC when recruiting for other government agencies which include; time taken to recruit, costs incurred during recruitment, paperwork used, complaints from applicants e.g. fraud etc.

Present during the assessment and the press briefing were Justice Ralph W. Ochan (PSC chairperson), Prof. Tonny Oyana (Principal, CoCIS), Hon. Benigina Mukiibi (Member, PSC), Ms. Winnie Kabogosa Musoke (Member, PSC), Mr. Enyomu Richard (Commissioner, Monitoring & Guidance, PSC), and Ms. Alenga Rose, Undersecretary PSC).
