Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has instructed all ministries and provincial departments to implement computer-based tests for the process of recruiting public servants.

The move is part of reforms approved by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in October last year with the aim of making the application system fairer, more transparent and more effective in choosing the best candidates.

The Deputy PM requested that the Ministry of Home Affairs issue regulations and guidance allowing ministries and other State-run agencies to adopt the plan. It is targeted the new system in place by 2015.

The tests will be used to select personnel at all levels, including senior management, and will also be used later to assess performance of staff throughout their employment.

The Home Affairs Ministry became the first Government department to utilise computer-based testing when more than 300 applicants took an exam at the beginning of January in the hope of becoming one the ministry’s 52 new public servants.

Deputy Minister Tran Anh Tuan said that the reform was being implemented to improve the quality of public servants at every level in the country.

The PM formed a central steering committee to promote the restructure, with Home Affairs Minister Nguyen Thai Binh being appointed Chair.
