The psychological testing aimed at combating corruption is part of the ministry’s proposed federal program for development of the state civil service in 2015-2018, said Dmitry Basnak, who heads the ministry’s department for state service development.
The tests, which could be introduced in a format of an interview using psychological assessment tools, could be devised by June 15, 2015, although the program has not been yet approved and the timeframe could be changed.
“First, an analysis of the results will allow exposing inclination or aptitude for corruption of future or acting civil servants,” Basnak said. “Right questions in such an interview guarantee the 90% result,” he added.
“Second, a future career path based on knowledge, professional skills and personal qualities has an important motivating significance and is an additional restriction in the behavior of a civil servant,” Basnak said.
Statistics shows that corruption has not receded in Russia. Last year, over 28,000 anti-corruption cases were filed, up from 18,000 in 2012. The damages from corruption in 2013 totaled over 13 billion rubles ($266 million at current exchange rate). In 2010, over 35,000 anti-corruption cases were launched, up from 28,000 cases reported in December 2009.
