General Authority for Civil Service
Commitment description
The public sector plays an important role through accommodating a huge number of competencies. The develop- ment of skills and expertise in the civil service is an essential pillar to develop the administration and improve the quality of its services, thus making it an essential engine of economic and social development in the country. Therefore, promoting this sector by supporting its transparency and openness to all various users represents an essential tool to ensure that. In this context, this commitment aims to develop two electronic systems to promote transparency in this area:
- Developing an electronic system that enables all staff to view requests submitted by various heads of departments regarding vacancies in relevant posts.
- Developing an electronic portal for training in public administration that enables access to all information on training programs as well as online registration.
Difficulty of access to information about administrative vacancies as well as on training and professional development programs.
Identification of commitment objectives/expected results
These platforms are considered among the most important mechanisms to promote civil service transparency and thus motivate staff to stay and work in the public sector as the training will strengthen and develop their competencies. Moreover, allowing all public employees equal and transparent access to information on public sector vacancies is an incentive for those who do not want to leave the public sector and who aspire to find an opportunity to work in an institution that is more in line with their skills and aspirations.
In addition, this commitment will support municipalities by the required human resources given that following the last local elections and the adop- tion of the code of local authorities on May 2018, these structures are still needed more the availability of competencies and experiences in several fields in order to strengthen the local governance principles as well as to promote the decentralization process.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Enabling all public officials equal and transparent access to information that could be of interest to them, which will enable the most qualified employ- ees to benefit from the opportunities available both in training and in the field of mobility and recruitment in public sector.
Relevance with OGP values
