Marshall Islands - Civil Service Reforms

Civil service rationalization. The public sector wage bill has doubled since 2000 primarily due to a rise in the public payroll and, at 22 percent of GDP, is significantly higher than in other countries in the region. The mission welcomed the plan to conduct a comprehensive civil service personnel audit to identify areas of over-staffing and disproportionate pay. Building on the audit’s findings, a combination of civil service pay cuts and reductions in employment should be phased over the near term.
