South Sumatra pioneers in outsourcing of civil servants; govt there not to recruit staff on contract

IN A classic case of how future bureaucracy may look like, the administration in South Sumatra is now preparing a blueprint to implement an outsourcing system whereby private companies would be given contracts to supply civil servants. The government, in turn, would not recruit any more contractual workers on its own, and many of the existing temporary staff may find their way to become permanent employees, a report in the The Jakarta Post said.
Under a new regulation, all provincial administration agencies will subcontract the service to third parties or outsourcing companies, the paper said. The report further quoted South Sumatra Civil Service Agency head Muzakir saying that handling the matters related to temporary employees working in government agencies would no longer be the responsibility of the administration. The outsourcing also means the end of service of many existing civil servants working in a contract basis. “Their performance will also be evaluated periodically, and the contracts of those who are deemed lazy will be terminated,” Muzakir said, according to the report.
South Sumatra is a province of Indonesia with a population of mere 69 lakhs.

Is Pitroda following Nilekani or vice-versa?
Is Sam Pitroda following Nandan Nilekani, or it’s the round way round. If government gossips are taken seriously, Mr Pitroda’s relatively long innings in the government has been a comfort factor for former Infosys co-founder Nandan Nilekani to take risk in government and take up the challenge of a new government project after having an outstanding career in India’s second largest software export company.
Whether that’s true or not, Mr Pitroda is following Mr Nilekani in Yojana Bhawan, literally. Former chairman of the National Knowledge Commission has recently moved into Room No 125 of the Planning Commission which was recently vacated by Mr Nilekani to shift out to his new UIDAI office in Jeevan Deep building in New Delhi’s Connaught Place area.
Is Nilekani preferring IAS to corporate guys?

  1. India should not take such a model of outsourcing civil servants. What we need are dedicated bureaucrats who like to be professionals in very sphere.
