They aimed to create an attractive work environment for talents, enhance performance evaluation mechanisms based on transparency and fairness, and support performance agreements that drove objectives and accountability.

Training and continuous education in the public sector were directed to develop leadership and employee skills based on performance evaluation outcomes and annual training plans.

Promotion processes in the public sector were linked to merit, qualifications, and job requirements.

The systems aimed to establish an integrated accountability framework to ensure adherence to professional conduct and ethics, improve performance efficiency, and ensure smooth operations in departments. They also regulated all matters related to human resources management in the public sector.
