Applying the CPA to the civil service


The publication of a decree in the Official Gazette on May the 10th, 2017 has outlined the different modalities for the entry into force of the personal activity account (CPA) in the civil service. This provision concerns both the personal training account (CPF) and the citizen engagement account (CEC) included in the CPA.


The document should be brought to the attention of all personnel concerned by this new provision. Those affected by the new provision include those civil servants and contractual agents who are members of the pension scheme and irrespective of the duration of their contracts. This provision covers the civil service of the State, the territorial civil service and the hospital public service.


The content of the decree

The first section of the decree deals with the calculation of the number of hours of training for each personal training account (CF). The number of hours of training to be apportioned to each account is calculated on the 31st of December each year. Procurement schedules are determined in proportion to the working time of staff working in full-time or part-time positions. It should be noted that periods of part-time work are considered to be full-time periods in the calculation of training hours. If at the end of the calculation the result of the training hours is a decimal number, the number is rounded up to the next highest integer.


The decree refers to leave and absences taken into account in determining the supply to the CPF. Also included are:


  • Periods of paid leave
  • Parental leave
  • Sick leave
  • Maternity leave


The agent can also take advantage of the union time credit, which is also included in the CPF procurement determination. Article 3 of the decree stipulates that the owner of the account can benefit only from the hours he has obtained according to the rules mentioned above.
