U. P. Academy of Administration & Management

Director General's Message


There is a direct link between the quality of governance and strength and vibrancy of democratic institutions. The delivery of public services depends on the development of right attitude, outlook and honing of skills of the human resources at various levels and layers of the administration. We, at the Academy, are contributing our best towards development of necessary skills and the right attitudes among officers so that they can render public service efficiently.

The U.P. Academy of Administration & Management endeavors to train civil servants both at induction and in-service stages. Conduct of Institutional Training for the IAS probationers allotted to UP Cadre, Professional Course for PCS (Executive) and Foundation Course for PCS (Executive), and Combined State Civil Services are among the Academy’s Flagship Programmes. A four-week collaborative programme in conjunction with Duke University, USA (2 weeks in UPAAM and 2 weeks in Duke) for PCS (Executive) officers having 20 years or more experience has been going on since 2006.

Another in-service training course of four-weeks duration for PCS officers with service between 12 to 20 years with exposure to best practices of governance in Asian countries is on the anvil. The other three main streams in which Training Programmes are conducted are Trainers’ Development Programme, Right to Information and Disaster Management.

The Academy’s important role includes strengthening of Disaster Management Cell and building it up as a repository of a expertise in terms of availability of resource persons, systematic maintenance of database, capacity building of human resources and dissemination and propagation of best practices. The other area of prime pursuit is acceleration in the activities of the Centre for Good Governance with focused attention on systemic reforms in sectors and areas of maximal public interface so as to improve the quality of life for the State’s citizens.

We hope to enlarge our team soon, consistent with the breadth of the mandate so as to render services to the State effectively.
