Resolution of the Council of Ministers
Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 24/2001, of 1 March, determines the establishment of an Internet site where public bodies will publicise personnel recruitment, and another site for publicising employment offers in the scientific and technological fields.It has thus conferred mandates upon Government members regarding the respective implementation of these sites.
Generalised Internet access allows information to reach a much greater number of people more quickly. Hence the advantages of the systematic recourse to the Internet in making available and disseminating information, namely that information held by the Public Administration.
Public employment offer is a clear example of how useful it is to have the Administration present information digitally on the Internet, namely in cases where public procurements are held, or those involving the public advertising of employment offers.
In addition to the greater dissemination of the Administration's intention to take on staff, one must also consider the increased transparency in procedures, as well as the possibility of bringing together all public employment offers on a single site, easy to access and consult by all interested parties.
It is therefore important to encourage the establishment of an Internet site where it will be obligatory to disseminate all public employment offers.
Taking into account the specific nature of employment in the scientific and technological fields, and the objective of attracting and keeping qualified human resources in this area in Portugal, priority should be given to developing a similar Internet site for this employment area.
Thus, under the terms of paragraph g) of article 199 of the Constitution, the Cabinet has hereby decided:
1. To instruct the Minister of State and Public Administration Reform to encourage the establishment of an Internet site to house the Public Administration Employment Market, created by Cabinet Resolution no. 12/2001, of 18 January.
2. To instruct the Minister of State and Public Administration Reform, within the scope of the Decree-Law defining the rules for managing the Public Administration Employment Market referred to in paragraph d) of point 2.1. of said Resolution, to ensure the conditions for efficiently running the site referred to in the previous point. These conditions must foresee:
a) The terms under which it is obligatory to publish any and all advertisements for personnel recruitment launched by public bodies, as well as the employment offers to be carried out by the mobility mechanisms foreseen by law;
b) The terms under which personnel recruitment processes, which do not comply with that set out in the previous paragraph, are considered to be invalid;
c) The creation and upkeep of a database regarding recruitment processes, foreseen in the previous paragraphs, including namely, the number of successful and unsuccessful applicants, as well as the people composing the jury, should this be the case.
3. Taking into account the need to attract and keep qualified resources in the scientific and technological areas in Portugal, to instruct the Minister of Science and Technology to encourage the creation of a specific Internet site. This site will be aimed at promoting scientific and technological employment and should include important information regarding the scientific and technical nature of the employment offered. Furthermore, the principles referred to in point 2 shall be applied to this site.
4. The dissemination of scientific and technological employment offers by private entities shall be encouraged on the Internet site referred to in the previous point.
5. References to this Internet site shall be encouraged in international search engines.
6. The Internet site referred to in point 1 must be functioning within a maximum one-year period.
7. The creation of the Internet site referred to in point 3 must be immediately promoted, and is to be running on a trial basis within a maximum three-month period, and fully operational within a maximum six-month period.
The Presidency of the Cabinet, 7 of February of 2001. The Prime Minister, António Manuel de Oliveira Gueterres.
