Measures for the implementation of the message of president Tokayev K.K. to the people of Kazakhstan have been discussed at ACSA

The chairwoman of the Agency for Civil Service Affairs Anar Zhailganova held a meeting to discuss the implementation of the Address of the Head of State "Constructive public dialogue is the basis of stability and prosperity of Kazakhstan." It was attended by employees of the central office of the Agency, its subordinate organizations - the Academy of Public Administration under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the National Center for Personnel Management, and territorial departments of the Agency through video conferencing. Anar Zhailganova voiced instructions to ensure high-quality and timely execution of tasks aimed at improving the public service coming from the Message. “The head of state set the task until 2024 to gradually reduce to 25 percent the number of civil servants by directing the released funds to materially stimulate the most useful workers. At the same time, it is necessary to work out measures to attract young personnel to the public service, as well as observing the principles of meritocracy. We are faced with the task of developing approaches for the implementation of this assignment,” she said. The Head of the Agency also emphasized the special importance of the systemic fight against corruption, voiced by the President of the country. The necessity of considering anti-corruption issues among public servants through the prism of ethical control is noted. As Anar Zhailganova said: “Civil servants, especially those working in regulatory bodies, should clearly understand that the slightest violation of ethical norms and legislation on civil service in relations with the business community can be regarded as an obstruction of legitimate entrepreneurial activity or an attempt to lobby someone else’s interests ". According to her, of considerable importance is the further increase in the share of public services provided in electronic form, including making payments for their non-cash payment. This is especially relevant in light of the task voiced by the Head of State to develop the digital economy and strengthen leadership in the Central Asian region in terms of the development of information and communication technologies, as well as the widespread introduction of non-cash payments.
