The Institute of Public Administration (IPA) was established by the Act no.1 of 2007 to support the Public Services reform Programmes which calls for effectiveness and efficiency in Public services.
Apparently, back in 1970s the Institute of Public Administration was known as
CHUO CHA UCHUMI under the control of Ministry of Education-Zanzibar; the course provided mainly based on commercial studies, materials Management and elementary Accounting. It was situated at Vuga opposite of Institute of Kiswahili and Foreign languages (IKFL). It is under State University of Zanzibar (SUZA).
In 1984 the Institute changed to Zanzibar Institute of Training for Public Servants CHUO CHA WATUMISHI. Following to the government endeavors to improve Public servants by providing performance improvement programme for lower and middle cadres.
In 2005 the so called CHUO CHA WATUMISHI was shifted to Mizingani building due to establishment of the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) which occupied the Vuga Building originally occupied by the Institute..
