European Neighbourhood Policy Measuring Georgia's Anti-corruption Commitments in 2011
Based on consultations with the Civil Service Bureau (CSB) of Georgia, it appeared that there were few mistakes in TI Georgia’s report on European Neighbourhood Policy- Measuring Georgia’s Anti-corruption Commitments in 2011, regarding the assessment of the civil service system in Georgia.
On page 31 we have mentioned that it is legal responsibility of the CSB to be directly involved in the recruitment of civil servants according to the Art. 86 of the Civil Service code. CSB is only responsible to appoint the chair of the examination committee recruiting, upon the nomination of the head of the respective agency according to Art. 85 of Civil Service code of Georgia.
On page 31 we have incorrectly claimed that all Legal Entities of Public Law (LEPL) are exempt from the regulations of the Civil Service Law and the Law on Conflict of Interest and Corruption in Civil Service. A number of LEPLs including the National Bank of Georgia are indeed subject to these laws.
