Ministry of Public Services and Administrative ReformThe Ministry of Public Services and Administrative Reform, MINFOPRA, is specifically res- ponsible for the management of State’s human resources and modernizationPublic Administration.EFFICIENT MANAGEMENTThe Ministry of Public Services and Administrative Reform (MINFOPRA), fulfills its basic tasks through two operational programmes respecti- vely entitled: "Improvement of State’s Human resource management" and "Further Administrative Reforms". The first is implemented through four actions: the control of Government staffing, capacity building of State’s personnel, modernization of public officials’ career manage- ment and improvement in the management of dis- ciplinary records and litigation.The second program, which aims at helping increase the public services performance, turns on two actions: the design and development of projects and tools of the Administrative Reform; the development and monitoring of the imple- mentation of the Blueprint of Public Administration reforms.Another program, the "Governance and Institutional Support," is to be associated to the previous two ones; it aims at improving service coordination and ensuring the proper implemen- tation of the above mentioned technical pro- grammes. It is carried out through five actions: improvement of the working environment; coordi- nation and monitoring of services operations; financial and budget management; strategic stu- dies and planning; internal control and audit.THREE-YEAR RECRUITMENT PLANIt’s within these various frameworks that MINFO- PRA was deployed during the recent FY 2015 for a dense and fruitful action. Emphasis was laid for example on planning and increase in the staffing of the Civil Service.Therefore, in order to streamline recruitment in the Civil Service, a three-year recruitment plan 2015- 2017 was developed. Its approval by Prime Minister, Head of Government, allowed to open and organize some competitive administrativeexaminations in 2015. One should point out that these examinations are part of the continuing effort of Government to strengthen and renew staffing in the Civil Service, to promote youth employment and to conform to the strategic gui- delines of the GESP, which recommend providing sectors likely to boost and speed up economic growth with human resources.On another level, the stabilization process of State’s salary and Personnel database continued. The operation which partakes of Government’s policy to control staffing and wage bill (launched in 2005 and permanently since 2008), conti- nued with the monitoring of the implementation of resolutions of the recent sessions of the Inter- Ministerial Monitoring Committee (CIMS) held from 16 to 22 December 2014. In the early- 2016, Cameroon Civil Service has approxima- tely 280,621 officers, of which nearly 194,303 civil servants, 73,397 contract workers and 12 921 policy makers.As for the state of Departments database, as part of the implementation of a new Integrated Management System of Personnel and Salary (SIGIPES 2), a grooming process of all depart- ments database was launched. The operation enabled to clarify the administrative situation of thousands of public officers. In addition, the groomingallows to gradually remove the deceased and retired public officers from departments.REGIONAL DISCIPLINARY BOARDSIn order to shorten the waiting period inherent to disciplinary proceeding and bring closer the res- pondents to the competent bodies, regional dis- ciplinary boards of the Civil Service have been created and organized. In this shifting atmos- phere, the bodies were set in regional headquar- ters for the training of officials in charge to ener- gize the said councils in examining the discipli- nary files.
