Truong Van Lam, director of the department, told representatives of the Ministry of Home Affairs at a review meeting on December 9 that as of now, relevant agencies of the city have been equipped with computers and software for the coming tests.

Lam said the city authorities decided to organize tests on the computer screen for civil servants from next year. The application of information technology to such tests is supported by the public and helps promote transparency in choosing right people for the city government, he emphasized.

The city asked the ministry to adjust its current rules regulating the exams, as such rules apply to exams on paper and are not suitable for the new computer-aided tests.

Besides, the city government has also completed database software for civil servant management.
