JOHANNESBURG - The Public Service Commission (PSC) says government officials need to increase their levels of accountability for errors and oversights.

Public Service and Administration Minister Ngoako Ramatlhodi will today give an inaugural lecture on professionalising the public service at the University of South Africa (Unisa).

He is expected to outline the transformation journey adopted by the commission since 2013.

The public service has often come under scrutiny for staff misconduct, non-professionalism and poor accountability.

The commission's acting Director General Dovhani Mamphiswana says efforts to address the attitudes of public servants are underway.

"It is one of the areas I think we need to improve in government."
