Since 2019, the GDVC has annually applied the Index for monitoring and evaluating results of administrative reform in the Customs sector. The issuance of the Index aims to assess the annual administrative reform results of the GDVC’s subordinate units. The Index is applied to 45 provincial and municipal customs departments, eight departments and five units under the General Department of Vietnam Customs.
The structure of the index is determined in seven areas. The provincial and municipal customs departments are evaluated in seven areas and 36 criteria, 71 component criteria, 90 band scores. The departments are assessed in seven areas, 32 criteria, 62 component criteria, 70 band scores, and other units under the GDVC are assessed in seven areas, 22 criteria, 38 component criteria, 50 band scores.
The areas, criteria and component criteria of the Index are specified in Appendix 1 issued together with Decision 1500/QD-TCHQ dated May 24, 2019 by the General Director of Vietnam Customs.
The conversion among customs units to the band score 100 as follow: K1 = 10/9 for provincial and municipal Customs Departments, K2 = 10/7 for departments under the GDVC and K3 = 10/5 for other departments under the GDVC.
On the basis of the conversion, the score of each unit will be calculated on 100 band scores.
The departments and units will base on the results of administrative reform to self-assess and score under the component criteria specified in the Index, attach verification documents and send the results to the General Department’s Office to send to professional appraisal units before reporting to the Appraisal Council of the GDVC.
