The President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed the law “On the State Civil Service”. The document consists of 10 chapters and 64 articles, the press service of the Civil Service Development Agency reported.
It should be recalled that at the twenty-sixth plenary session, senators discussed and approved the law “On the State Civil Service”.
The law norms apply only to civil servants performing activities in positions subject to inclusion in the state register. The main powers of state bodies in regulation of the state civil service are determined. In particular, the powers of the President, the Cabinet of Ministers and other authorized state bodies in the field of the civil service are specifically indicated.
In addition, the law creates a legal basis for prevention of corruption offenses in the civil service, that is, it is clearly established that the activities of civil servants are evaluated on the basis of the most important performance indicators (KPIs). Persons who have committed corruption crimes are not admitted to the state civil service.
At the same time, the law stipulates that serving the people is one of the basic principles of the state civil service.
On August 4, under the chairmanship of the President, a videoconference meeting was held on reforming the civil service and improving management efficiency.
During the meeting, it became known that after a two-year development with the involvement of domestic and foreign experts, on the basis of a comprehensive discussion, a law “On the State Civil Service” was prepared.
