Civil servants' careers now depend on internet reviews from citizens

"Civil servants take forever to do anything."
- Joseph Wambaugh

Recently I had quite an ugly experience having to deal with a particular nasty bureaucrat. Seems like he was having a very bad hair day indeed! Mind you, not all civil servants are unpleasant, but in the more than 60 years I've been dealing with these people, I have found that most appear not to enjoy what they're doing and could care less about the people they are suppose to be serving!

To make a very long story short, after 6 hours waiting for papers/documents required by yet another governmental agency, I overheard the bureaucrat telling his fellow worker that his "missus" wouldn't have sex with him for several weeks now and that he wasn't a happy camper.

Is that any reason for anyone, especially a civil servant, to be nasty and exhibit discourtesy to citizens who pay their salaries and very generous benefits? Finally after receiving my benefits I spoke to the civil servant and reminded him, in a voice that could be heard by those around us, that he is a civil servant, paid by the people in line, that his nasty and discourteousness behavior conducted with citizens was unacceptable! I was, happily, applauded by those around me and I walked out.

Shortly thereafter I read the below article about how "Russian civil servants' careers now depend on internet reviews from citizens." How lovely it would be to be able to have some recourse against such civil servants who forget who pay them!

Enjoy!

Russian civil servants' careers now depend on internet reviews from citizens

The Russian government has changed the assessment criteria for civil servants – now their careers will depend on feedback from ordinary citizens, as well as their reactions to reviews posted on the internet.

The order, signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and published on the government's website on Friday, details the rules by which the work of heads of regional branches of various state agencies can be assessed by ordinary citizens. The document also describes how the assessments can impact the officials' careers, including "the early dismissal of such heads of agencies from their posts."

There are two main components: the citizen evaluations of their work, and their handling of reviews posted on Gosuslugi – a site allowing communication with various state and municipal bodies and agencies.

The program will be funded as part of the ‘Information Society' state program, according to the order.

In November 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree with details of the criteria used for evaluating regional governors and other officials from the executive branch. These include the average income, the percentage of people with incomes below the cost of living, availability of housing, and the quality and availability of community services. In addition, the assessments of governors made by the population in the region will be taken into account.

Earlier this week, the head of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, recommended the president stop reading reports and analyses from the various regions and start basing his assessments simply on the number of happy faces seen on public web cams.

"Study their faces, where the faces are the happiest the governor must be good; where the faces are gloomy, unhappy, irritated and mean – this is also an excellent sign to judge the performance of a governor or a mayor," Zhirinovsky said.

Putin thanked him for his input, but said that the external happiness of people is hardly a parameter that can reflect the real situation in a region's economy.
