***********
8. EXPORT PROCESSING ZONES DEVELOPMENT
AUTHORITY
8.1 The Export Processing Zones Development Authority (EPZDA) was created in 1992 with the objective of acting as a facilitator and catalyst in forging the competitive edge of export oriented activities through the enhancement of productivity, quality, creativity and innovation.
8.2 During the past few years, with the fast globalisation process of the world economy, enterprises in the Export Processing Zones (EPZ) have been facing critical challenges. On the one hand, this sector is in direct competition with low cost and high volume producers of Asia and Latin America while, on the other hand, it has to exploit fully opportunities offered by the regional markets such as Southern African Development Community (SADC) and Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) as well as those under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).
8.3 To meet these challenges, the EPZDA has reorganised its activities laying more emphasis on specialised services. In this context, the following three units have been set up namely: a Clothing Technology Centre (CTC) conceived as a centre of excellence for the textile and clothing industry to play a vital role in Mauritius and at regional level. It would also facilitate acquisition of technology and know-how by the industry and provide required back-up and technical support throughout the clothing value-chain. The Information Communication and Technology Unit (ICTU) would facilitate the deployment of automated solutions to the industry in order to enhance competitiveness and a Business Processing Re-Engineering Unit (BPRU) would provide consultancy services to enterprises. These units would help enterprises in diversifying their product range while moving up market to attain higher value added products.
8.4 We are not bringing any change to the structure except for the creation of a grade of Purchasing and Supply Officer.

Purchasing and Supply Officer (New Grade)
8.5 At present, there is no specific grade to perform the duties of Purchasing and Supply. We are, therefore, providing for a grade at appropriate level.
Recommendation
8.6 We recommend the creation of a grade of Purchasing and Supply Officer. Recruitment thereto would be by selection from among employees at the level of Clerk who reckon at least four years' service in a substantive capacity.
8.7 The Purchasing and Supply Officer would be required to perform purchasing, storekeeping and stock control duties.
