Second stage of the administrative reformConsidering the new requirements we already have started the secondstage of the administrative reforms.First of all the state apparatus will be reformed. I have signed the “NewPublic Service” Law. This provides improvements to counter corruption,increase the transparency of the selection of public servants selection, andpromote the best personnel.We will create a National Personnel Policy Commission. A principally newclass of professional managers of A-class will be created, which will beresponsible for implementation of certain areas of the state policy. First ofall the A-class will include the Responsible Secretaries and Heads ofAdministrations of regional authorities, Committees’ chairmen, governors ofthe regions and towns. I task my Administrations to prepare a draft Orderregarding qualification requirements to the A-class candidates,From now on every public servant has to demonstrate clear progression intheir career through the development of skills and experience that allow asthem to increase their professional level. Exceptions should be made tocover those public servants who demonstrate outstanding performanceagainst key indicators and demonstrating clear achievement at a seniorlevel.I task the State Service Agency to introduce by the end of 2013 this newmechanism of career promotion for state civil servants.
Special consideration should be made on increasing the quality of stateservices. Our aim should be to signal a departure from the one-way powerapproaches in interaction of the state with the population towards aneffective and operative provision whereby citizens and the state worktogether.The draft “State Services” Law has been submitted to the parliament. Itshould be adopted by the end of 1st quarter of 2013.We should release the state bodies from the extrinsic functions, andincrease the independence of state institutions. The Government shouldlink its implementation with the introduction of a new mechanism of localbudgets from 2014.
