New checks on civil servants

A new evaluation system for civil servants will be adopted from next year, government sources told Kathimerini Friday, although the Administrative Reform Ministry rejected concerns about the current scheme.

The ministry reacted after the National Center for Public Administration and Local Government (EKDDA) questioned the effectiveness of the current system.

The ministry responded by saying that the current evaluation process, which the government ultimately wants to use to determine civil servants’ pay and job security, is a transitional one. It said the previous one led to “everyone being awarded top marks.”
