Shraideh said that the outputs of the committee will span future governments, asserting that there are Royal assurances to implement its recommendations, which would lead to the establishment of a comprehensive roadmap, and an action plan to modernize public administration and streamline and upgrade procedures.

The committee will announce its outputs next June, said Shraideh, asserting that it is not concerned with the dismissal of public sector employees, rather, developing the government’s apparatus, and the human resource requirements of ministries and institutions, including those for leadership positions.

Shraideh said the committee has no intention to abolish the role of the Civil Service Bureau any time soon, adding that the committee is working on three key components; a review of legislation to align with best international practices and promoting efficiency and institutional values, structural development of the government’s apparatus and enhancing the performance of public servants, and improving services to citizens through automation, and upgrading the health, education, transport sectors and social welfare.

For his part, Shboul said that the public sector modernization committee, chaired by Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh, was given a six-month time frame to come up with a plan aimed at modernizing the public sector administration.
