The Administrative & Civil Service Reform Virtual Network (ACSR-VNet) is now launched. The ACSR-VNet represents a new form of collaboration between professional organizations committed to improving the quality of international debate on Administrative and Civil Service reform. Current members include the the International Personnel Management Association and the United Nations Global Online Network on Public Administration and Finance. As members, these organizations are provided with material from the World Bank website for use directly their own sites. The organization's logo and that of the World Bank are displayed in a "frame" on each of the shared pages. For further information about the ACSR-VNet, simply click on the designated link from the Administrative & Civil Service Reform home page. Other likely members include the Tanzanian Civil Service Department, the Zambian cabinet Office, and the OECD Public Management Service.
