The Ministry of Public Function has cooperated with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications to establish a modernised civil servants management system for the Ministry of Health to manage its officials more efficiently.
In a joint directive between the ministries of public function and health dated March 21 but obtained by Khmer Times yesterday, the ministries stated that the modernisation would make the system of managing civil servants more efficient.
“Decentralisation of this management system to the Health Ministry will provide ownership and true responsibility for the management of civil servants through information technology systems such as entering, using and updating the data, management and development of human resource plans, electronic payment tables and information,” the directive said.
Sar Samedy, Public Function Ministry spokesman and head of the legal affairs and dispute department, said yesterday that the two ministries would prepare to disseminate the directive to relevant stakeholders, including the directors of the health and public function departments in all cities and provinces, on Thursday.
After the meeting, the working team will be able to determine when this program can be implemented in order to be effective.
“The two ministries are working together in order for this civil servants management system utilising technology to be effectively implemented. For this joint work, we hope to be highly effective,” he said.
San Chey, executive director of the Affiliated Network for Social Accountability, said modernisation of the civil servants management system was in-line with the e-government plan, which utilized information technology to deliver information and services to citizens.
