Tigran Avinyan: The functioning of the state system will be based on  established institutions

ArmInfo. The government of  Armenia has launched the process of developing a comprehensive  strategy for reforming the sector of public administration, which  sets itself the task of re-evaluating the public administration  system. This was announced on September 13 during a meeting of the  Council for the Development of a Strategy for Reforming the Sector of  Public Administration, chaired by RA Deputy Prime Minister Tigran  Avinyan.

According to the press service of the government, the Deputy Prime  Minister emphasized that, as part of the strategy, it is necessary to  formulate an operational model of the state system that will be  effective and capable of shaping the development agenda, presenting  it for public discussion; respond to constantly changing signals,  risks and challenges facing the state; implement state policy aimed  at ensuring the growth of the welfare of society.

<In-depth public administration reforms will be a key component of  the political agenda. These reforms will guarantee success in  pursuing policies in other areas, in particular economic, social,  defense, etc.>, he stressed.

In particular, according to Avinyan, the strategy will cover 5 areas:  development of policies, human resources management and public  administration, provision of public services, accountability and the  procedural framework of public administration.

In all areas of reform, digitalization and the development of human  abilities will play a key role. In particular, the implementation of  digital, electronic and smart solutions will be considered. Thus, as  noted by the Deputy Prime Minister, it is planned to increase the  synergy of the system, transparency, public accountability,  automation of business processes within reasonable limits.

According to him, as a result of reforms, state policy will cease to  be fragmented, and the state will be accountable not for processes,  but for specific results. In particular, the institution of  individual responsibility for political results will be introduced,  and the public perception of the civil servant will be changed. "The  civil service will be attractive both for a young specialist aspiring  to a public career and for a self-sufficient specialist who is ready  to put his knowledge and experience into building a state," he  emphasized.

"The functioning of the state system will not be based on the  selfless efforts of individuals, which, of course, is no less  important, but on the established institutions," the Deputy Prime  Minister concluded.
