>admin reform move goes into hibernation

>THE caretaker government’s move to infuse dynamism, accountability and transparency into the public administration has hardly seen any progress since the initiative was taken a year ago. (Click for full report)
This has frustrated many including a few civil bureaucrats who have been in favour of reforms in the civil administration. They said like many other initiatives this may also end up in rhetoric.
Formed in July last year with an objective of giving concrete directives for reforms in the administration and guidelines for posting and transfer, the chief adviser-led cabinet committee on administrative reforms and good governance has so far managed to hold just one meeting.
As the government is presently busy with holding dialogues with political parties and the upcoming local government and parliamentary elections, chances are slim that another meeting would be held in near future.
“I am not yet informed about another meeting of the committee,” an adviser and a member of the committee told The Daily Star last week.
In December last year, the establishment ministry drafted a civil service ordinance and policies for promotion, transfer and career planning for public servants and strengthening the field administration, but those are gathering dust at the ministry.
Sources in the ministry said it is the government that would have to be more serious about the matter. A member of the administrative reforms committee, however, said the ministries concerned should come up with specific proposals.
