The Civil Apparatus Bill aims to speed up transformation in seven areas, according to Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform Abdullah Azwar Anas.

“There are seven priorities in this Bill, namely transformation in State Apparatus recruitment and position, national talent management, acceleration on competency development, resolving contract worker issues, reform on State Apparatus performance and salary management, State Apparatus management digitalization, and strengthening the working culture of State Apparatus,” the Minister said after attending a limited cabinet meeting chaired by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo in Jakarta, Wednesday (09/13).

Regarding State Apparatus recruitment, the Minister said that there would be more recruitment cycles to fill the vacant positions.

Regarding national talent mobility, the Minister stated that the measures will be taken to ensure equal distribution of State Apparatus in underdeveloped, frontier and outermost areas.

The Minister also said that the Government and the House of Representatives (DPR) are currently preparing the best mechanism to resolve the issues of contract workers.

“The short-term solution is to prevent large-scale layoffs. We have issued a circular to all Ministries/Institutions to provide budget for the existing contract workers,” the Minister stated.

The Minister further said that the State Apparatus Bill is expected to be passed before the end of November.

“Before November 28, the Government and the DPR, God willing, will pass the State Apparatus Bill,” the Minister remarked. (FID/UN) (RI/MMB)
