This is a compulsory to all ministries, sectors and localities. The Scientific Topic has been systemically and deeply studied on scientific premises to civil servant structure identification without being duplicated with other scientific topics. The Scientific Topic has been carefully and seriously deployed, and the Research Team successfully combined a set of scientific study methods, which is modern and appropriate to different researching content clusters and having met the given objectives. The integration between theoretical issues and practical surveys built up valuable outcomes and petitions, which are meaningful to the management and utilizations of administrative civil servants. The solutions to civil servant structure identification in state administrative organizations posed by the Scientific Topic are practical as they were piloted in the Vietnam Social Assurance and the Ministry of Home Affairs. Besides, the Scientific Topic embedded experiences in identifying civil servant structure of several foreign countries; however, they were neither analyzed, assessed, generalized into empirical issues nor lessons applicable to Vietnam. The structure of chapters were imbalanced, the volume of content were not appropriately allocated. The current status analysis and challenge evaluation lacked coherence and connection. 

Mr. Hoang Quoc Long in his feedbacks to the Scientific Topic

In his comments to the Scientific Topic, Mr. Hoang Quoc Long M.Sc, Deputy Director General of the Department of the Civil Servants and Public Employees, MOHA said that the Scientific Topic successfully synthesized outcomes of theoretical studies on civil servant development as well as civil servant structure. The Scientific Topic reviewed and evaluated current status in term of quantity and quality of present staff of civil servants in state administrative organizations and institutionalized civil servant management. From that, reasons of limits and weakness were pointed out in managing and developing civil servants at present. These were important premises to conduct studies and generalize, figure out relevant recommendations and policies to improve the quality of current civil servant, including identifying civil servant structure to be in line with state administrative apparatus. The Scientific Topic would be an important set of document, formulating background for scientists, managers to conduct further studies and policy-making for the sake of job-position classification and civil servant structure identification in state administrative organizations, contributing to enhance quality of our national civil servants. Besides, the data set used in the Scientific Topic was mainly exploited from the source of reports of ministries, sectors and localities. The Research Team should invest more time and human resources to conduct survey and make practical assessment in certain organizations, units and make thorough analysis of data including comparison to point out current status on national state administrative civil servant, from which to suggest better appropriate and feasible solutions.

Council members also gave comments and evaluation to supplement to content of the Scientific Topic regarding the highest civil servant grade of each organization, at each level, and civil servant structure based job-position identification etc.
