CSC systems

Informed sources at the Civil Service Commission said all ministries and government entities are obligated to link together the fingerprint systems within the CSC. They said the decision by the remaining government bodies to link their systems with CSC is a “compulsory move.” They said this move aims at enabling the concerned authorities at CSC to follow up on data and make sure everything remains in compliance with the rules and standards circulated by the commission. The sources said a new automated system will be applied to ministries and government bodies that will commit all those who did not link the fingerprint system with CSC to quickly rectify this and link it.
