‘Budget of non-compliant agencies to be frozen’
KUWAIT CITY, Jan 8: The Civil Service Commission (CSC) in a letter to government agencies has to determine the number of expatriate employees working in each job category, reports Al- Qabas daily. The request is linked to the Kuwaitization of jobs because the CSC is in the final and the fifth stage of implementing the policy.
The CSC is said to have warned saying if the replacement policy is not followed, the budget of non-compliant agencies will be frozen. The CSC also indicated that it is preparing an annual study for the implementation provisions of the Resolution No. 11 of 2017 concerning rules and procedures for Kuwaitization of jobs in all government agencies since this is the last year of completion of the replacement policy.
The CSC, along with the letter, has reportedly attached lists of 17 different functional groups mentioned in the decision, and called on the authorities to specify the number of workers in each functional group, whether Kuwaiti or non- Kuwaiti, pointing out that in light of the authority’s statement, the number of non-Kuwaiti employees will be reduced to reach a percentage of the number of Kuwaitis set by the Kuwaitization decision. The CSC added, in the event that the required statement is not received from any institution, the CSC will address the Ministry of Finance to take the necessary measures to freeze contracts in the entity’s draft budget as of July 1, 2022.
