What is the public interest issue to be addressed by this commitment? The COVID-19 health crisis, which the whole world has known, converted our societies, including Côte d'Ivoire, to teleworking overnight. Teleworking has been used by the vast majority of companies and Administrations, as an alternative mode of work to cope with the constraints linked to corona virus disease. Thus, on Thursday, April 9, 2020, the Ivorian Public Administration officially implemented teleworking to ensure the continuity and efficiency of public services in the context of the health crisis linked to COVID-19. This working method poses the technical problem of tool availability and data security.
What is the commitment? The general objective of this commitment is to provide the Ivorian administration with technical means for the practice of teleworking. The commitment will result in: - the identification of executives who require teleworking; - the identification and choice of software tools adapted to each telework setting; - the identification and choice of the material tools necessary for teleworking; - the deployment of support infrastructures; - the provision of tools for workers to perform teleworking (computer hardware, software, subscriptions, communications, etc.).
How will commitment contribute to solve the public problem? By making teleworking tools available in a secure environment, the commitment will help: - compliance with barrier measures during an epidemic or pandemic; - the continuity of the public service; - the preservation of jobs; - flexibility in working hours; - at the domicile of the workplace. 28 The different steps for the identification and implementation of teleworking tools are: - Carry out a comparative study of the different tools to assess their strengths and weaknesses; - Proceed with the selection of tools with regard to the objectives of the Government; - Acquire or develop the selected tools; - Put in place the selected tools; - Provide support to users in the use of the selected tools.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?

This commitment allows work continuity, reinforces its efficiency and guarantees the safety of workers.
