Assessment in civil service: Current situation and transferring to competency-based assessment model

The paper presents the summarized results of investigation of assessment of the civil service recruitment system in the Republic of Azerbaijan and transition to the competencybased model. The transition to a competency-based model in the civil service has been part of the development activities in the framework of “The strategy for Civil Service Development in the Republic of Azerbaijan for the years of 2019−2025”. The strategy has been enforced within the Republic of Azerbaijan since 2018. To enhance the professionalism and efficiency of civil servants, a competency model should be applied in civil service based on international experience. The model to be applied should identify not only formal requirements for civil service tasks but also the skills required to hold those positions, their measurement and evaluation mechanisms. The application of the competency model should be accompanied by the grouping of civil service positions by their field of activity and the creation of job profiles within groups. According to the strategy the competency model should cover all civil service tasks and be open to the public. The competency model should be used as a key criterion in civil service recruitment and evaluation of civil servants' performance. For implementing it, a set of tests, practical tasks, interviews and other assessment tools should be developed to assess the required competencies of citizens in the civil service. In this research, the main challenges and gaps in the current recruitment system, the advantages of the competency-based model and the role in the assessment process will be determined
