ASAN successes acknowledged in UK Parliament

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 July 2014

The success of the Azerbaijani Service and Assessment Network (ASAN) aimed at reducing corruption and increasing efficiency was acknowledged in the UK Parliament during a roundtable on government technologies on 9 July. This event was organised by The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) in association with Total Politics magazine and hosted by Bob Blackman MP. Altogether, ASAN offers 29 private and 150 public services, with a central principle of bringing representatives from various government departments under one roof.

Kamran Agasi, Director, Innovations Centre, Azerbaijani State Agency for Public Service and Social Innovations, explained: The concept evolved from the top leadership in Azerbaijan. The first ASAN Centre was launched in January 2013, and the latest centre the sixth was launched in May 2014. Each centre provides services to at least 2000 people each day, and more than two million people have used the services so far.

We expect the entire country to be covered by the end of 2015. The ultimate goal is to provide satisfaction for Azerbaijani citizens by making services easy to access and ensuring efficiency. ASAN centres represent corruption-free zones and are designed to be completely transparent. Our software engineers have also developed their own queuing systems, whereby appointments may be booked online, users have an accurate indication of how long they must wait to be seen, and even receive an SMS notification when they are coming to the front of the queue. This saves wasted time and frustration. Citizens may also undertake several services during one visit.

All ASAN centres display fees on specially installed monitors and distribute leaflets that itemise all fees and the list of required documents in advance. Innovation is a cornerstone of the concept. Civil servants do not deal with payments, thereby eliminating any possibility of corruption. We also aim to constantly improve ASAN services. The staff in the centres who have an average age of 25 years are intensively trained on all systems. One of the main pillars of the system is accountability, and citizens are encouraged to give feedback on their performance using Skype kiosques, exit poll machines, Facebook and web pages, amongst others. ASAN employees must have the mindset to deliver, and are rewarded for good performance. ASAN Centres run Banks of Ideas where citizens can make suggestions on how systems can be improved, including their perspective on future development of the entire system. An example has been the inclusion of free cr
