Analytical Framework for Institutional Assessment of Civil Service Systems

Apr 2002
The object of this document is to present an analytical framework that could serve as a common reference to assess national Civil Service (CS) systems in countries located within the Bank's scope of action. There are three goals of the document: 1) To facilitate the task of analysts of national CS systems, providing a reference point and methodological directions useful for their work; 2) To provide a common approach to diagnosis, facilitating comparative analysis of their conclusions; 3) To provide methodological measuring tools using indices, that can allow comparison of certain aspects of different countries' situations. This document was prepared in April of 2002 for an IDB Regional Policy Dialogue.
