On Friday, 24 of July, the representatives of the Institute alternative (IA) held the meeting with interested stakeholders, within the project ”State Administration in Montenegro – Equal for All”, financially supported by the U.S. Embassy in Podgorica.
The event brought together stakeholders that are crucial for recruitment and promotion in state authorities, i.e. the consistent implementation of the Law on Civil Servants and State Employees: representatives of the Ministry of Interior, the Administrative Inspectorate, Human Resources Management Authority, the Appeals Commission and the Ethics Committee for monitoring the implementation of the Code of Ethics of Civil Servants and the State Employees.
At the meeting, we discussed the key challenges in establishing a merit based system in state authorities, identified in the IA’s monitoring report “Recruitment and promotion in state authorities“, but also in official Government’s reports and reports submitted through the IA website “My Administration“.
The result of the events is a draft of the recommendations, which will be further discussed in the framework of the amendments to the Law on Civil Servants and State Employees, which is expected to be adopted by the end of the year.
