CSB completes 1,534 organisational studies

The Civil Service Bureau (CSB) has issued standard criteria for establishing top management positions for the various government entities which was approved by Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa deputy prime minister, deputy president of Civil Service Council.

The CSB has also successfully worked on various studies this year, marking a 12.5% increase over last year, with an average of 6.2 studies completed daily.

Overall, 1534 organisational studies have been achieved, including 28 organissation top structure charts, 53 detailed directorate organisation structure charts, 117 manpower ceiling studies, 10,279 positions, 100 part time position studies and 50 major projects.

As a result of these studies 2,030 employees were placed in the Human Resource Management system (Horison) within various government entities.

The CSB set standard criteria for establishing top management positions for directorates in the civil service.

This aims to limit the unnecessary expansion and administrative inflation within government entities, control the establishment of top positions, and define a clear mechanism for the drawing of main organizational structures of government entities.

This will contribute to estimate the actual needs of government entities, and will lead to the creation of more effective and efficient and streamlined regulations, control government spending, and achieve optimum utilization of human resources through the re-engineering and restructuring of government entities based on regulatory controls and foundations.
