Cuepacs insists on wanting assessment scrapped

The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: Cuepacs will still submit a proposal to the Government to abolish the Efficiency Level Assessment (PTK) test for civil servants despite the Public Service Department having rejected an earlier request.

Cuepacs president Omar Osman said it would submit the proposal to the Chief Secretary to the Government within the next 14 days.

“We have agreed that there should be an assessment for civil servants but their level of competence should not be based on tests as currently practised.

“This is because the tests are only in favour of higher ranking officers. We do not want any more assessments based on tests.

“In the proposal, we will be suggesting methods that can be used to assess civil servants,” he said during a press conference after chairing a special congressional meeting, which was attended by more than 900 members here yesterday.

He also said Cuepacs, which represents most of the 1.2 million civil servants in the country, plans to set up a fund to help those in need.

If the constitution allows it, then RM1 will be deducted monthly from civil servants' salaries.
