PETALING JAYA: Civil servants who can be moved will now be subjected to rotation within their departments or ministries under a system to check corruption and improve efficiency, according to the Public Service Department (JPA).

A circular sighted by FMT said officers in essential services must be rotated after serving between three and five years in a post, while those in other services will be involved in the move any time between three and eight years.

JPA director-general Mohd Khairul Adib Abd Rahman said this move follows the directive by chief secretary to the government Mohd Zuki Ali on April 6 asking the department to implement it to curb malpractices and inefficiency.

“In view of this, all ministries and departments must carry out the internal rotation of at least 50% of the staff who are eligible to be moved. This involves officers below Grade 54 and the order comes into effect immediately,” he said in the circular.
