The Qual­ity of Spe­cial­ists Is All That Mat­ters!

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TODAY IN UZBEKISTAN - Tahir Makkamov

The in­ter­na­tional sci­en­tific and prac­ti­cal con­fer­ence on the state spe­cial­ist pol­icy in the con­text of re­form­ing the pub­lic ser­vice sys­tem: for­eign prac­tice and the ex­pe­ri­ence of Uzbek­istan, has been held in Tashkent. In course of the fo­rum top­i­cal is­sues of train­ing, im­prov­ing the qual­ity and level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism of cadres for pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion are con­sid­ered.

The event was or­ga­nized by the Academy of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion un­der the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan with the as­sis­tance of the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of­fice of the United Na­tions De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram. It was at­tended by do­mes­tic and for­eign ex­perts, in­clud­ing from Rus­sia, Sin­ga­pore, the Repub­lic of Korea, Kaza­khstan, Kyr­gyzs­tan, UNDP rep­re­sen­ta­tives, the Of­fice of the OSCE Project Co-or­di­na­tor in Uzbek­istan, KOICA and other in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Par­tic­i­pants ex­am­ined the state and main direc­tions of im­prov­ing the leg­isla­tive ba­sis of the civil ser­vice, ef­fec­tive mech­a­nisms for im­ple­ment­ing the state per­son­nel pol­icy. New ap­proaches to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships were dis­cussed.

The fo­rum has be­come a plat­form for the study of best prac­tices in the se­lec­tion and train­ing of per­son­nel in gov­ern­ment and ex­ec­u­tive au­thor­i­ties, meth­ods for as­sess­ing the ef­fec­tive­ness of civil ser­vants. The re­ports and dis­cus­sions em­pha­sized the grow­ing de­mands on the qual­ity of the work of the civil ser­vice, the need to com­ply with the com­pe­tence of spe­cial­ists and of­fi­cials to the in­creas­ingly com­plex na­ture of pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion tasks.

Ac­tion Strat­egy for the five pri­or­ity ar­eas of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan in 2017-2021 years fo­cuses on the re­form of the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion sys­tem, the de­vel­op­ment of the or­ga­ni­za­tional and le­gal foun­da­tions of the civil ser­vice. Tak­ing into ac­count mod­ern re­quire­ments and pri­or­i­ties, the struc­tures, tasks and func­tions of 16 min­istries, depart­ments and other or­ga­ni­za­tions have been re­vised, 20 state and eco­nomic man­age­ment bod­ies have been trans­formed. The Con­cept of Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­form in the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan was ap­proved, on the ba­sis of which mod­ern forms of strate­gic plan­ning, in­no­va­tive ideas and tech­nolo­gies are in­tro­duced into the sys­tem of state ad­min­is­tra­tion. It is planned to adopt 17 laws in the sphere of state and pub­lic con­struc­tion in Uzbek­istan.

The cre­ation of a pro­fes­sional civil ser­vice has be­come part of the fun­da­men­tal re­form of the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion sys­tem, cov­er­ing such im­por­tant is­sues as the for­ma­tion of the per­son­nel re­serve, their train­ing and re­train­ing with the mod­ern re­quire­ments, the gen­er­a­tion of new man­agers ca­pa­ble of mak­ing in­formed de­ci­sions to achieve strate­gic goals.

Some bod­ies have been de­vel­oped a de­tailed pro­ce­dure for re­cruit­ment, in­clud­ing mech­a­nisms for com­pet­i­tive se­lec­tion. This makes it pos­si­ble not only to se­lect a qual­i­fied can­di­date and cre­ate a data­base of spe­cial­ists, but also to pro­vide equal ac­cess for ad­mis­sion to the civil ser­vice. How­ever, there has not been a uni­fied sys­tem for ap­point­ing and pro­mot­ing to higher po­si­tions, form­ing a per­son­nel re­serve in the coun­try. Study­ing the ad­vanced for­eign prac­tices in for­ma­tion and de­vel­op­ment of the pub­lic ser­vice sys­tem helps to iden­tify both the short­com­ings and the prospects for de­vel­op­ment and to focus on ef­fec­tive forms and meth­ods.

Within the frame­work of the con­fer­ence, an ex­change of views took place on the Con­cept of the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­form, its sig­nif­i­cance in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Ac­tion Strat­egy for the five pri­or­ity ar­eas of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan in 20172021 years, on the draft laws “On Pub­lic Ser­vice of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan”, “On Pub­lic-Pri­vate Part­ner­ship”. Pro­pos­als and rec­om­men­da­tions for fur­ther im­prove­ment of the civil ser­vice and per­son­nel pol­icy in the repub­lic have been worked out, tak­ing into ac­count in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Pro­fes­sional pub­lic ser­vice is a pre­req­ui­site for pro­mot­ing eco­nomic re­forms and in­creas­ing con­fi­dence in state in­sti­tu­tions,” said UN Res­i­dent Co­or­di­na­tor and UNDP Res­i­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Uzbek­istan He­lena Fraser. - The con­cept of ad­min­is­tra­tive re­form has laid a solid foun­da­tion for large-scale trans­for­ma­tions in the sphere of civil ser­vice. We are im­ple­ment­ing with the Academy of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion a project to train man­age­ment per­son­nel in the repub­lic. We are ready to con­tinue to pro­vide prac­ti­cal as­sis­tance, in par­tic­u­lar in­for­ma­tio­n­an­a­lyt­i­cal.
