How do the grass-roots cadres feel after the three-year burden reduction?

  In March 2019, a piece of news made grassroots cadres extremely gratified—

  The General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued the "Notice on Solving the Prominent Problems of Formalism and Reducing the Burden of the Grassroots".

  In 2019, it was identified as the "year of reducing the burden on the grassroots level".

  Over the past three years, the Party Central Committee has issued a series of arrangements to reduce the burden on grass-roots cadres.

Various regions and departments have made real and tough moves, released a clear signal, solved some stubborn maladies, and stopped some unhealthy trends.

  Disciplinary inspection and supervision organs have also made a lot of efforts to rectify the formalism that plagues the grassroots.

  Now, how effective is the burden reduction?

  Let's talk about some of the most "painful" points of grass-roots cadres.

  Pain point 1: Being trapped in the venue, lack of self-reliance

  There are few grass-roots cadres who have never experienced the fatigue of a meeting.

  The key is, if the cadres are busy in meetings and are trapped in the venue, who will implement the work tasks?

  Since 2019, the Jiamusi Municipal Party Committee of Heilongjiang Province has carried out governance and rectification in response to the prominent problems of formalism such as too many document meetings and restricting grass-roots cadres and officials to start businesses.

  What is the effect? ​​To let the facts speak, the Jiamusi Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision conducted a QR code questionnaire survey and found that although the overall improvement has been improved after rectification, there are still some problems——

  The meeting was long, repeated, and held at different levels; when the meeting was implemented, and some key tasks were supervised and inspected, meeting minutes, meeting photos, meeting agendas, etc. became important evidence to promote the implementation of the work...

  How to solve these problems?

  In this electronic questionnaire that does not disclose personal information, grass-roots leading cadres spit out the truth:

  "The superior requires rapid communication and implementation. We understand that a meeting is the most powerful and effective means of communication and implementation."

  "Not having a meeting appears to be indifferent and leaves no trace."

  "Inspecting the implementation of the work, we often focus on checking whether to hold relevant meetings to convey the implementation, so we have to hold meetings at various levels."


  According to these circumstances, the investigation report formed by the Jiamusi Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision attracted the attention of the Municipal Party Committee, and immediately introduced hard measures to solve the problem.

  For example, meetings are held in “packaged” meetings, try to use “screen-to-screen” instead of “face-to-face”, and avoid layer-by-layer meetings and layer-by-layer transportation...

  The implementation of the new measures has effectively alleviated the embarrassment of grass-roots leading cadres "being trapped" in the venue. Everyone has more energy to plan work ideas, and their work style is more pragmatic and executive power is stronger.

  Pain point 2: The trouble of filling out the form

  Two years ago, Zhu Xiaojuan was most afraid of the days when the form was filled out at the end of the month.

  "It's really in a hurry. Take the management of corporate retirees as an example, there are 633 corporate retirees in our community, involving 15 work contents such as hospital condolences, hardship subsidies, and retirement relationship transfer, 30 types of data, and only paper forms are needed. Filling in more than 20 sheets, every month at the end of the month, I can’t get enough time to spend the whole day in the report.”

  Zhu Xiaojuan is a cadre of Lantian Community, Zhanongkou Street, Shangcheng District, Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Two years ago, every month at the end of the month, she would answer the phone, make calls, ask for data from other lines, and fill in forms manually. , to deal with the superior reminder.

  The party who "fills in the form" is suffering, and the party who "receives the form" also has its own difficulties.

Wang Fang, a staff member of the Zhanongkou Street Public Service Center, was most anxious during those days.

"There are 15 communities with thousands of retirees. It is impossible for us to accurately grasp the situation of each individual. Apart from summarizing reports, I have no other way but to repeatedly remind each community."

  Wang Fang said that since the management of enterprise retirees is related to the vital interests of the masses, mistakes cannot be made, and complex report design and cumbersome data statistics are also helpless.

  Filling out less reports has become a common cry of cadres.

In August 2020, Zhanongkou Street first explored and launched the "One Meter Link" application system, which aggregated the data of all lines of the street together to form a "total table", and updated the data in real time through cloud computing and intelligent retrieval. The difficulty of obtaining data is greatly reduced, and the accuracy of data is significantly improved.

  From last year to the beginning of this year, the application system has been iteratively upgraded, the database capacity has been increased, the intelligence level of computing and retrieval has been improved, and a large number of grass-roots cadres have been liberated from reports and ledgers.

  At the end of March this year, it was time for Zhu Xiaojuan to report the data on employees who had retired from the company.

Open the "One Form Connect" platform on the mobile phone, input several data that have changed, the spreadsheet will be automatically generated, and the required data will be retrieved and exported with one click.

Now, at the end of each month, she can save about 10 hours of form-filling time, which can be used to visit retirees of grid enterprises, grasp the real situation, and solve practical problems.

  Up to now, the "One Form Link" application system in Zhanongkou Street, Shangcheng District, Hangzhou City has aggregated 338,000 pieces of community governance element information, sorted out 220 tag fields, and realized offline collaborative collection of big data and online sharing and use.

  Pain point 3: Welcome to the inspection is really tiring

  "In the past, this department came to investigate fire protection today, and tomorrow that department came to investigate environmental protection. We were too tired to cope, and production and operation were affected to a certain extent." Yang Aihua, director of the office of a company in Xianju County, Zhejiang Province, told us to complain.

  In order to strengthen supervision and eliminate hidden dangers in production safety, enterprises have to accept the supervision and inspection of relevant departments from time to time, and "multiple law enforcement" and "repeated inspection" have become a big burden for enterprises.

  Under the supervision of the Xianju County Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision, the county has introduced a multi-department and cross-domain comprehensive law enforcement "up to one investigation" mechanism.

  Through law enforcement reporting, active joint inspections, and organization of departmental consultations, all enterprise-related law enforcement departments have conducted one-time inspections of multiple matters, one-time investigation, one-time notification, and one-time rectification, which has improved the efficiency of law enforcement.

  "Now the multiple inspections are merged into one, which not only reduces the interference to our enterprise, but also resolves the conflict between the requirements of different departments on the spot, which greatly facilitates our enterprise." Yang Aihua said.

  Zheng Kaihong is a large flower planter in Qingliu County, Sanming City, Fujian Province, with a base area of ​​1,100 mu and a greenhouse of 80 mu.

  Zheng Kaihong's scale has grown and his reputation has grown, and more and more departments and units have come to visit.

One wave of visits just came out of the greenhouse, and another wave came again.

At peak times, six or seven groups of visitors are received a day.

  Zheng Kaihong was obsessed with this "happiness" and had less energy to focus on production.

  What rescued Zheng Kaihong from the inspection was the special governance activity of "solving the outstanding problems of formalism and reducing the burden on the grassroots" carried out by the Sanming Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection.

The Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision went down to the front line, focusing on the simple method of investigation and investigation, the problem orientation is not strong, and the formalism such as going through the motions and graphics.

  Zheng Kaihong was selected as the monitoring point as a new type of agricultural business entity.

Anyone who comes to disturb "Kao" planting flowers will be "monitored".

  All of a sudden, "idlers" dare not come to the door easily.

  "Now the people coming from above are all rushing to solve the problem. I can now free up more time to develop production." Zheng Kaihong said.

In the greenhouse of his base, the gerbera is growing well, the petals are larger than before, and the flower color is good, just waiting for the market to compete.

  Pain point four: busyness on the fingertips

  "How about the effect of reducing the burden, you can see by looking at my mobile phone."

  Xiao Xu opened the screen interface of his mobile phone, and there were several commonly used APPs in it, and the interface was refreshing.

  Xiao Xu is the business backbone of the Pujiang County Administrative Service Center. He is usually responsible for guiding the platform entry of township and departmental approval matters, the development and docking of the convenience service platform, and the reception of enterprises and the masses to handle matters.

A few years ago, her mobile phone was full of various government apps, and some of them required to swipe the time, check in, and upload screenshots every day.

  In addition to the government APP, click on WeChat, and a window is full of various work groups, and statistics and reporting forms are also required every week.

  Xiao Xu is also responsible for the compilation and distribution of the WeChat official account of her unit. It is her "hard task" to push a WeChat official account every day.

  Work overtime at night to write manuscripts, and edit WeChat during the day.

After a long time, I was tired of coping every day, my work efficiency was low, and my personal life was also greatly affected.

  "Fortunately, I'm finally free!" Xiao Xu said.

  In the past two years, Pujiang County, Zhejiang Province has carried out a special campaign of "reducing the burden on the fingertips", cleaning up and shutting down the government affairs Weibo and WeChat public accounts opened by 334 units in the county, and simultaneously canceling more than 800 government affairs WeChat groups. , integrated and built the county-level government APP "Poetry and Painting Pujiang", and guided 15 townships, towns, streets and more than 100 departments and units in the county to settle in.

  The effect of this move is obvious.

Since then, Xiao Xu has less coping work on his fingertips and has more time to focus on his job.

  After three years of hard work, many "pain points" have been solved, and it has indeed brought good news to grass-roots cadres.


Don't let your guard down.

  It is necessary to keep an eye on invisible mutations, and strictly prevent the grassroots from reducing the burden and rebounding.

  Red-headed documents have been streamlined and white-headed documents have overflowed; single meetings have been reduced, and there have been more sets of meetings; supervisory assessments have been strictly controlled, and investigation-based assessments have emerged; the old leading groups have been cleaned up, and new ones have rebounded?

  Regarding these matters that are not real and suspected of increasing the burden, the Disciplinary and Supervision Commission of Cixi City, Zhejiang Province has been keeping a close eye on it, and has continuously made new moves.

For example, the Municipal Party Committee Office is encouraged to play its leading role and blacklisted APPs that do not meet the needs of the grassroots; the Gutang Sub-district Disciplinary Work Committee is closely monitoring the list of leading groups for dynamic supervision. lowest……

  A survey conducted by the Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision of Guandu District, Kunming City, Yunnan Province found that the overall situation in Guandu District is good, but some comrades reported that although the number of work groups has decreased, the content published has increased. Can't be disbanded in time...

  According to the investigation, the Guandu District Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision urges the relevant functional departments to re-optimize the "reduction of the burden on the fingertips" -- clean up and integrate the "one group" and "multi-group" network work groups, and resolutely implement the work group approval and supervision mechanism; requirements Each unit shall not set up various work groups indiscriminately, and shall not release notification information or work instructions at will, so as to truly make the work groups operate in a standardized and efficient manner.

  Burden reduction is for efficiency.

  This year, it is necessary to allow grassroots cadres to spend more time and energy on implementation, so as to provide a solid work style guarantee for the successful convening of the Party's 20th National Congress.

  If you want to know what's going on next week, listen to the next breakdown.

(Never stop)
