Rabat – Driss Jettou, head of the Court of Auditors, said on Wednesday that the Council is preparing to issue a report on public administration that will expose inconsistencies therein.
During a joint public hearing on the work of the Court for the year 2014, Jettou revealed that the study prepared by the Court on the public service would highlight the most important reforms that Morocco introduced in the sector and the problems that still hinder achieving the desired goals.
Among the most important conclusions highlighted in the study was the distribution of more than 585,000 employees, 90 percent of whom were placed in only five sectors. The report stated that this structure did not respond to any economic or demographic logic, highlighting the fact that too many employees concentrated in just a few regions come at the expense of others.
The Court revealed that the rationalization of the management of human resources in certain sectors – such as education – is weak, warning that the public service sector suffers from absenteeism.
The education sector alone, which comprises 50 percent of state employees, recorded in 2014 a total of 636,400 days of justified and unjustified absence, which is equivalent to the absence of 4,000 teachers throughout the year.
According to the findings of the Court of Auditors sees that “the recruitment, training and promotion reform cannot be done separated from wages reform linked to the fundamental systems that did not undergo any major reforms.”
The Court also found that “the recruitment processes are far from effective reasoning; and the administrations lack a comprehensibly vision for hiring their staff while promotions were granted without displaying the required efficiency or improvement in the performance of the employees.”
The head of the Court of Auditors said that research reflected in the reports found that the services provided in the Moroccan administration is not in line with the governance standards brought by the constitution, stressing that citizens in rural and marginalized areas have difficulties accessing government services.
