What is the public issue for which the commitment is made to address?: The infatuation of Burkina Faso citizens with direct competitions of public administration leads, each year, to very long queues, making submission conditions hard both for candidates and receiving officers. The dispersal of file submission sites imposes long distances to candidates who want to apply for many competitions. People with a disability are the more disadvantaged by the situation. It is in the light of all these difficulties that the government of Burkina Faso considered that the setting up of a platform enabling online registrations of candidates to direct competitions of public administration was in 2015 an alternative. The registration platform « e-Competition » accessible at « » enabled the registration to 18 competitions in 2017 out of more than a hundred.
