Selection processes within the Federal Public Services

general assembly on February 14, 2018

In its report to the Federal Parliament, the Belgian Court of Audit has examined the different screening processes organised by the Federal Recruitment and Selection Office (Selor). Though a recent action plan has brought some improvements in this field, the positive impact has remained limited in practice. So, there is still room for improvement in document scanning and management. There are irregularities in the participation conditions to the selection procedures and Selor has used practices without substantiating them on any regulatory basis whatsoever. Quality controls also need to be increased. The Minister for the Civil Service has declared that he will take these recommendations into account.
