Civil Servants Effectiveness Evaluation: RussianExperience Moscow, June 20111Procedural regulation of delivery of functions by a government body

Instruments (forms) of codifying requirements and responsibilities of civil servants:

Job regulation - Job reglament ( - )

Employment contract ( )

Program of individualprofessional development ( )

Thesaurus2History of Question (I)

1997-2005 attempts to construct new generation of job reglaments for civil servants idea comes from experts of TASIS (1997-2005) + from Federal Program of Public Service Reform in Russia (2003)


20033History of Question II-BRussian Federation FEDERAL LAW


Article 50. Civil Servants Payments14. Special order of renumeration on base of indicators of effectiveness and labor performance for certain positions of civil servants15. List of selected labor positions approved by President of RF Decree, and by Normative Acts of the Subjects of RF16. Special order of renumeration is limited by funds of Government bodies for gross payroll plus social contribution funds17. Criteria of effectiveness and labor performance of civil servants approved by Government bodys Normative Acts


Pattern Approach:

- 4 categories of civil servants: executive officers, assistants (advisors), specialists, support specialists

- 5 groups of civil servants: highest, major, leading, senior, junior groups

Group + category = positionIdea: To elaborate the pattern job reglament for every possible combination of category and group

5Practical needsTo introduce the special order of civil servants renumeration of labor on the base of results and quality of their performance (for some positions)To divide the categories and groups of civil servants according to their participation in elaboration and implementation of managerial decisionsTo avoid corruption

To describe all situations of labor activity as complete, as possible

11PIK EvaluationImpossibility to describe situations of job activity completely. Qualitative descriptionsActivity of civil servants goes far beyond public services delivery. Internal activityThe impossibility of precise delineation of end results and immediate results of job activity Personal results of civil servants job activity is not corresponded directly with effectiveness of Government bodies as such. Self-evaluation of Gvt bodies

Positions IndicatorsCriteria12Socio-Cultural Russian ConstrainsCulturally rooted atmosphere of mistrust, attempts of authorities to control everything. Control and supervision functions enormously extended Psychological impossibility to establish the horizontal structures of responsibility and decision-making Vertical-oriented system of governing, when decisions produced ONLY by high level bureaucrats, despite contribution of lover level of State Apparat or other organizations (including NGO), which elaborate it. Absence of authors (experts) supervision of the process of decisions implementation existing theories of governance have no capacity to assess the effectiveness evaluation of civil servants in Russian case. It should be new kind of theory, that could evaluate the civil service (and governance in general) in case of countries with weak civil society

13Comments (1)Good governance as the transitional theoretic stage on the way toward new Theory of Effective State:clear distribution of responsibilities on the base of civil servants professional competencies framework in decision-making process professional activity (process) and its results evaluation as two different procedures

14Comments (2)Such a Theory should include:Elaboration of the analytical instruments how to calculate the contribution of State into national economy, social and cultural progressPrinciples of Decomposition of State contribution: contributions of separate Government bodiesDecomposition of contribution of Government body: contribution of its branches, and servants

15Calculus of Government16I wonder about time, when people, instead to discussing problems could sit and simply CALCULATE the right answer (Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz)

Is it ever possible, that in the future people, instead to discussing, if Government is doing things in a right way or doing right things, could sit and simply CALCULATE the contribution of Government into the development of society?17
