1) Situation: Incomplete file

Your file may be stuck at a particular service because it may lack one or more documents that it needs to evolve. This may not be because you did not submit the document but sometimes during the transmission of files, one document may slip out of the lot and get lost or becomes difficult to replace in the correct file. Some civil servants have alleged that documents are taken out of their files to cause their files to be incomplete so that they can come and “negotiate” with the personnel in question.

What you can do

In this case, you can pay a visit to the service with all the copies of the file that you are worried about. If it turns out that it lacks any document, you can replace it there and then so that the file can continue its path to signature.

Also see faq: When the status of a file says… “transmis au … pour bien vuloir joindre le …

What the Ministry could do

The Ministry of Public Service could ensure that the transmission of files should be done in a more careful manner so that documents and files are not lost. The ministry could also seek to impute fault on their personnel when documents duly submitted by a civil servant turn out missing.

2) Situation: In availability of a personnel

In this case, the person responsible to treat the file especially to sign it is not available may be due to annual leave or sick leave.

What you can do
In this case, you can only pray that the person returns safe and strong to continue with the treatment of your file. The ministry may however appoint another person to fill in for an unavailable person so as to ensure the continuity of public service.

What the Ministry could do
The ministry could avoid a situation where it can only be one person who has the capacity to handle a particular scope in files of civil servants. They should appoint two or more personnel to functions that experience such issues.

3) Situation: A normal long procedure

Not all work in each service on your file is equal and takes the same period to finish. Some services need more time to complete work on each file so that they can pass them on. A good example is when you have not been updating your file and after many years, you come to update it. The personnel at the public service may need to treat years or decades of your untreated files in order to bring them up-to-date before they transmit to the next service.

What you can do
In this case, you can only be patient for your file to pass through the long procedure. Also, do not wait for years before you update your file in the public service for your career to evolve in time.

What the ministry can do
The ministry could implement shorter procedures either with multiple personnel handling a long procedure or using completely transferring the task to the aid of a computer to handle.

4) Situation: A large volume of work before the personnel treating your file

This case is common in our country with its centralized system as file treatment is manual and mostly done in Yaoundé and also in only one Ministry. The personnel may have hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of files to treat.

What you can do
If treatment is done chronologically (first in first out), then good for you. All you have to do is to wait your turn. If it is not treated chronologically, then bad for you. You may have to either wait and pray that favour from above seeks your file out, or you go to the service where the delay is to plead with the person to have mercy, or you, as many other impatient or “corrupt” civil servants do, could go to the service where the delay is and propose to corrupt the personnel even more so that your file can be treated in time. Know that this last option is not only unfair but also criminal according to the Cameroonian Penal Code. Minfopra Position du dossier

What the ministry can do
The ministry could appoint more personnel to handle areas where there are accumulated files and then apply deadlines for the treatment of files. The Ministry can set up a reporting system where civil servants who think they have been treated unfairly can report the service concerned for further investigation.
