Public administration reforms: Ruzic meets with Roaf from IMF

Serbian Minister of State Administration and Local Self-Government, Branko Ruzic met with the head of the IMF office in Serbia, James Roaf to discuss the public sector.

At the meeting, Ruzic said that the entire public sector system was changing completely with the view of becoming more efficient, economical and manageable.

Ruzic reminded that, thanks to the new job classification catalogue, the number of job positions in the public sector was reduced from 2,000 to 870.

“All public services are going to have to adapt their internal organization and activities to the catalogue, and there will be no more misuse, or inventing new jobs just to hire certain people”, Ruzic added.

He also told Roaf that his Ministry had prepared a set of draft laws that stipulate gender equality in workplace and payroll system in public services. These draft laws should be forwarded to the National Assembly for a public debate very soon.

The draft law stipulate a system that is much fairer to all civil servants because it enables equal evaluation of work and rewards for dedication and achieved results which, in turn, will raise the level of motivation in civil servants and the quality of the services they provide.

Ruzic informed Roaf that there are currently 6,700 people fewer than stipulated by the relevant law working in state and local administration.

The IMF’s technical mission came to Belgrade yesterday where it will meeting with the Serbian government to discuss fiscal developments, public sector reforms and the 2018 budget.
