HCMC seeks to cut State payroll

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC – The State payroll in HCMC will be reduced substantially between now and 2021, with over 2,000 civil servants and government employees to be laid off a year, shows an administration streamlining roadmap being reviewed by the HCMC government.

Under a scheme just submitted by the municipal Department of Home Affairs, the city will lay off 260 to 700 employees at administrative agencies a year, plus 1,800 at not-for-profit public entities, the news website motthegioi.vn reports.

The roadmap aims to lower the number of civil servants and government employees by 1.5-2%. The number of civil servants this year will be 11,210, to be reduced to 10,950 next year, or down 693 employees.

Between 2019 and 2021, the city will yearly trim the State machinery by 260 civil servants to 10,430 in 2021.

As for not-for-profit public entities, especially in the education and healthcare sectors, the city government is expected to resort to outsource certain work to the private sector. The goal is to decrease the number of employees to 114,576 in 2021 compared to 119,976 this year, or an annual layoff of some 1,800 employees.

The Department of Home Affairs also proposed the city government restructure not-for-profit public units in all sectors, wiping off those inefficient.

In addition, those public employees appraised as failing to fulfill the assigned duties for two successive years will be dismissed.

Particularly, the department suggests that relevant agencies inspect, arrange, restructure and downsize the number of accountants and healthcare employees at kindergartens, high schools, drivers, guards and other employees in non-profit public units.
