In the Annual Report Operational Management Central Government 2020 (JBR), the appendix major ICT projects and the public-friendly version JBR, which I hereby offer to your House, your House is informed about the way in which the State has worked on the realization of its ambitions within the government-wide business operations.

As with other employers, the corona crisis has a major impact on the government. Last year, the vast majority of government employees worked from home. Some of the employees continued to work at the work location to keep the vital processes running.

In this pandemic, the government has also shown that it is flexible and agile in its operational management. We handled unexpected crisis activities effectively. Employees had to adapt flexibly to a situation of mainly working from home. For this, the digital infrastructure has been greatly expanded in a few weeks. In addition, all civil servants can use a secure video conferencing application. During these special circumstances, absenteeism fell slightly and productivity was maintained.

The civil service has the ambition to work differently based on the experience gained and on the basis of research. To this end, the government-wide ‘Hybrid Works’ program has started. Working from home is more possible than before, which contributes to a better work-life balance of employees and which increases the attractiveness of the government as an employer. A decrease in commuter traffic has the additional advantage of a reduction in CO2 emissions. In order to be able to continue to guarantee good service provision, investments must also be made in improvements in business operations.

The effects of the crisis can be seen in the JBR:
There has been a decrease in CO2 emissions due to fewer travel movements.
The number of government vacancies rose less rapidly than expected. The number of vacancies decreased, especially in the second quarter. Due to policy intensifications, the number of employees increased in 2020.

The number of internships decreased. Guiding interns from a home work situation turned out to be difficult. In 2020, the House insisted on tackling the internship problem. The government is committed to more internships with the government. Various measures have therefore been taken to increase the number of internships.
The influx of people with an occupational disability was delayed, partly as a result of the corona crisis. The government has continued as many activities as possible for this group online. May 19, 2021

The government’s response to the report of the parliamentary interrogation committee on childcare allowances (POK) means that we are implementing improvements in the organization and working method of the civil service in many areas. This concerns, among other things, the information management within central government, the information provision to parliament and the strengthening of official skills. We will work out the announced measures in the coming period.

Over the past year, central government has shown that it can respond flexibly and flexibly to changing circumstances. A professional management organization is essential for stable and good service provision within the departments.

The government is working on a sustainable recovery from the corona crisis. The catch-up effort to make central government operations more sustainable is therefore being strengthened with a new government-wide program. There are many opportunities, for example in the field of housing in combination with reducing commuter traffic. I see opportunities for the government-wide purchasing strategy “Purchasing with Impact”. A further interweaving of purchasing, sustainability objectives, diversity and inclusion strengthens the social exemplary function of government-wide business operations and leads to added social value.
