Institute responsible for the implementation: General Directorate Of Civil Service (DGSC), Secretary of State in the Presidential Office
What is the problem that the commitment addresses? Honduras must improve the regulatory framework for hiring, classification and management of the human resource of the State. The legal framework in which it is currently working is outdated, obsolete and unresponsive to the present needs of Honduras. For this reason, the analysis and studies of a new legal framework must be updated based on international best practices and the recommendations of MESICIC, which has pronounced itself on the problems and gaps in the legal framework and the current situation. Among other actions, Implementation of this strategy requires strengthening of the civil service regime, promoting the necessary reforms in the matter. It requires a transparent follow-up and monitoring mechanism with access for citizens to know the process and the stage in which the appointments of the public workers are due.
Which is the commitment? Constitution of a panel of experts that defines the roadmap to follow for implementing the integral reform of the Honduran civil service. The panel of experts must deal with addressing in a comprehensive manner all the problems of the public service, including civil service and special regimes. To complement this process of an expert panel, it is considered a priority the design and implementation of a virtual monitoring and tracking module (Tracking) of the processes of appointment of public servants who will perform in a charge of public administration.
How will it contribute to solve the problem? The fulfillment of this commitment is relevant to be able to take the first steps in the long road that is required to consolidate a sustainable civil service regime, transparent and beneficial to the population, it entails the implementation of a long-term strategy that will also require the promotion of a Portal of Public State Employment, which improves equity in access to vacancies in the State. It will also demand the improvement of human resource management tools, with the appropriate technological instruments; and the permanent training to public officials, in the main aspects that should be know in their capacity as officials. It will allow every citizen who aspires a position in the administration to follow up in real time the progress of the process for the issuance of the appointment agreement in the place to be filled in the administration.
Why is it relevant to the values of the OGP? Transparency; The purpose of the table is to develop an innnovative and transparent mechanism to be able to improve the regulatory framework and the State ́s capacity of human resource management. As well, mechanisms for access to information, such as "Tracking" or follow-up in the process of hiring of public servants in places of appointment by agreement.
Citizen participation; citizens with option to have contract in a government position, may be involved in the direct follow-up of their hiring process, a process that in the present day is very opaque and scarce of information. Technological innovation; this commitment allows the creation of tools that facilitate the citizen's empowerment in the processes of hiring in government positions
Additional Information: There is a link with the Sustainable Development Goal number 16 whose goals are focused on the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, access to justice for all and building effective and transparent institutions.
