The Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Dmytro Dubilet has started uprooting "paper-based processes" at government authorities.
"According to my estimates, the government spends UAH 50 to 100 million annually on stationery for HR documents alone. And I can't event fathom how much time and talent is wasted," he commented on his Facebook page.
The Minister proposes cutting expenses, streamlining processes, and improving their efficiency.
He points out some of his key suggestions:
- no paper documents may be submitted for recruitment or competitive selection,
- employment record books must be done away with,
- archives should be digitalized: laws requiring paper files to be kept for 75 years should also become a thing of the past,
- the logic of approvals should change: the flow charts followed by documents "wandering" from one office to another should be made 3 to 4 times simpler,
- a unified registry of civil servants (PoClick system) should be created, and many more things.
The Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers promises to implement the changes in 6 to 9 months.
