Recognizing the necessity of reviewing the “career system” (the system for promoting a national public employee depending on the level of the recruitment examination he or she took ) and changes in the system for developing human resource, including the creation of graduate schools for specialist personnel, the National Personnel Authority (NPA) expressed its intention to review the recruitment examinations in a report issued at the time that recommendations were made last year and has since been committed to discussing this matter..
Recently, a bill has been submitted to the Diet to reform the national public employee system. In this context, the experts’ meeting will be organized in order to carry out a detailed study on how to radically revise the recruitment examination system. Academic experts will hold practical discussions from a technical perspective.
The expert committee will be composed of nine academic experts, who are well-informed about the recruitment examinations (see the attached sheet). The Director General of the Personnel Management Bureau will delegate tasks to each of these experts.
After the first meeting is held on Monday, June 9, 2008, the members will meet about once a month, and come to a conclusion by around the end of 2008.
