HR policy in penitentiary services - Organisation and performance

general assembly on December 22, 2021

The Court of Audit examined the organisation and performance of the HR policy in penitentiary services. On the one hand, the Directorate-General for Penitentiary Institutions of the Federal Public Service Justice faces staff shortages, high workload and a significant annual leave backlog. On the other hand, it has to make considerable savings and introduce a minimum service guarantee. The assessment of this guaranteed service as required by the Act of 23 March 2019 has not yet been carried out. The reforms aimed at improving the operational functioning of the penitentiary services set out in this Act are also delayed.
