The government of the Slovak Republic has approved plans for a new, EUR 4.9 million, central government Human Resources system (Centrálny Informačný Systém Štátnej Služby, CISŠS), Deputy Prime Minister for Digitisation Peter Pellegrini announced. CISŠS will keep track of hiring, vacancies and redundancies at central government offices, and include tools to analyse the data in the system.
Other government IT systems will link to CISŠS, the Ministry explains in its announcement. CISŠS will be funded in part through European Structural Funds. The system should be in place before 2020.
The IT system was discussed earlier this month at a meeting organised by Slovakia’s National Agency for Network and Electronic Services (NASES). At the meeting, NASES emphasised the benefits of CISŠS to citizens, including saving them time when applying for jobs. The new IT system would also be able to use data already present in public administration IT systems (Once-Only Principle, OOP).
In addition, CISŠS could share some of its data as open data, for example to publish vacancies on commercial job portals.
NASES will soon publish a report on CISŠS, including the public discussions and expert consultations, on its website.
