What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Ministry of Education in 2016 kicked off an activity so as all kind of information related to ministry’s structure, salaries and education could have integrated into a single data server. This system was aimed at administering the aforementioned activities of ministry and strengthening transparency and accountability. Now an agreed collaborative mechanism formed between ministry of education, Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission and National Directorate of Statistics to develop this system. Still, work on the system is in progress separately. (Details are in the following parts). EMIS is currently active and linked ministry of education in Kabul to the provinces. This system covers information related to 18000 schools across the country however this system is not connected to other databases in the ministry (HRMIS & AMLAK) to produce a correct report. For instance, school buildings, classes and other school facilities are recorded into AMLAK database, since these separate databases (systems) are being used and they are not interconnected with each other so that the reports being generated are not accurate and there are high chances of redundancy. Another problem with current EMIS is that, statistics of all students across the county being collected annually, however, it cannot generate a comparative report to determine the ratio between rise or decline in number of teachers in proportion to students and number of schools and vice-versa. Current data and information of EMIS is restricted to ministry of education and public do not have access to information.

What is the commitment?
This commitment aims to reform and strengthen the EMIS and firstly integrate to the HRMIS which is developed by Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission. Secondly, the performance of EMIS is expected to change and generate analytical and comparative reports which shall be publicized by the ministry of education.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?
With the reform of and integration of EMIS with HRMIS duplications will be avoided and ministry of education will avail a single and accurate reporting. EMIS will be linked to other managerial and educational systems so that all reporting indicators shall be generated from a single source. This system prevents duplication in the records of teachers, staff and lower management staff and accurate data can be generated from HRMIS automatically.
In conclusion, accurate reports of teachers in proportion to students, staff in proportion to students and schools can be generated and publicized. Upon completion of this commitment analytical and comparative reports can be generated and they will help the ministry leadership in their future decision makings.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment is related to all values of OGP through development of standard electronic system harness of latest technology will be ascertained. After the development of this system public and CSOs can refer to EMIS portal and access the accurate information or data pertinent to number of teachers and students as a result public participation, accountability and transparency would be promoted
