Reengineering of Human Resource Management process for Control of Staff and the Wage Bill in Cameroon



Over a number of years, Cameroon has undertaken a number of actions aiming at controlling the wage bill of the civil service. Despite all these efforts and enormous budgets, the country is not always able to achieve this goal. The control of the wage bill and the number of civil servants has become a well-worm subject. Actions that have been undertaken range from the physical census of public officials to computerization operations. This gave rise to the implementation of two software systems, ANTILOPE for the payroll management and SIGIPES for the career profiles processing of public officials. However, many questions still remain in Cameroonian’s minds (1) What is problematic in this management? (2) What is the best way to manage the public expenditure? This work presents a new procedure of staff control management of the Cameroonian civil service. This procedure results from the reengineering of the existing administrative procedures in order to allow each participant of the payroll processing chain to fully play its role for a proximity management, thus guaranteeing the payroll control through the control of staff and skills. In addition, we can aggregate the improvement of the quality of service in the administration and the prospective management of skills and workstations in line with the evolution of the environment. The new state human resources management procedure takes into account the division of administrative work and the role of each administration in the management and control of the state's HR management.
