PUTRAJAYA, March 20 (Bernama) -- The government has assured Cuepacs that it is in the process of reviewing the congress' counter proposals on the competency level assessment (PTK) examination for civil servants.The assurance was conveyed to Cuepacs by Public Services Department (PSD) Director-General Tan Sri Ismail Adam at a dialogue here yesterday, Cuepacs Secretary-General Ahmad Shah Mohd Zin disclosed, Friday.He told Bernama that the PTK was a very contentious issue which was "heatedly debated" among civil servants, with majority of them were unhappy with the present format.Cuepacs, he said, had proposed that the examination be remodeled and be more specific in testing the ability of civil servants in carrying out their day-to-day duties.At present the examination was too general and at times, some of the questions were irrelevant to the work scope of the examinees.Ahmad Shah said the meeting also discussed the issue of promotions for support staff in grades one to 16.He said this issue was also being actively studied by the PSD.The other issues discussed at the meeting attended by 30 Cuepacs executive council members and 20 PSD officials led by their respective chiefs, were personal to holder posts, contract and temporary posts and the pay issue for diploma holder teachers.On the contract officers, Ahmad Shah said there was no problem at the federal level as the government had decided that the services of these officers would not be terminated.However, the issue was critical at the state level as some of the state governments had yet to respond to Cuepacs' queries.On the issue of promotion for diploma holder teachers, he said, the PSD had decided on whatever that was given to it by the Education Ministry.Now the "ball was in the Education Ministry's court" to provide further recommendations and input on the issue, he said.Ahmad described the dialogue as very "fruitful" as many of the urgent issues facing the civil service were discussed in a very amicable and friendly atmosphere.-- BERNAMA
