Supporting civil service in Paraguay
The Civil Service Secretariat aims at improving the quality and efficiency of public service through the Network of Management and organized a workshop with Government of Paraguay’s institutions.
The meeting was to promote knowledge and application of new standards and tools to work with transparency and effectiveness in the admissions process and promotion of people in public service.
This first meeting of the network organized by the Office of Development and Institutional Change from the Civil Service Secretariat (CSS) brought together the heads of the Management Offices from different public institutions.
"When we talk of a new state, we speak of something that transcends governments. When we started four years ago to make the first announcements of job openings we had 7 openings, now we are projecting to reach 15,000 jobs, with new tools and new methods. It is important the work we are doing, because we are at the top of the changes to come" said Minister José Tomás Sánchez.
On the other hand, Rakas Rose, director of USAID / Paraguay, appreciated the efforts and institutional commitment of the SFP in the process.
"We are very pleased to support the CSS in the process of strengthening the management of people. Hiring qualified persons selected by competition is important for several reasons, first because it builds people's confidence that the state is looking out for their interests, another is that when people who work in the State are able, provide a better service the people, "said Rakas.
This activity was supported by the Democracy Program of USAID/Paraguay, through the local NGO GEAM and Seeds for Democracy, with its Topu'ã Program.
The opening ceremony was attended by José Tomás Sánchez, Minister of the CSS, Valeria Franco, Director of Development and Institutional Change, Rose Rakas, Director of USAID / Paraguay, Jorge Abbate from GEAM and Marta Ferrara from Seeds for Democracy. The working session was held in Asuncion on 10 May.
