Modernising the CERN Admin e-guide

In just a few years, the CERN Admin e-guide has become the essential guide for CERN's administrative procedures, intended not just for administrative services but for all members of the personnel of CERN.

The guide is edited by the Administrative Process Section (DG-RPC-PA) and allows users to look up administrative procedures and forms relating to the application of the Staff Rules and Regulations easily in both French and English.

Site visit statistics show that 5000 people on average consult the Admin e-guide each month. The most consulted procedures are those relating to green licence plates, taxes, Swiss and French cards and leave.

The site has just been moved over to Drupal, which will make it easier to update the information provided and will improve content management. This system change meant migrating 220 procedures and more than 500 frequently asked questions. The structure has been revised for clarity, but the principles that made the guide so successful have not changed, namely the ease of searching for information, references to applicable rules, summary tables and lists of competent services.

In addition, in response to requests for future and former members of the personnel to be granted access to the Admin e-guide, certain procedures can now be accessed without authentication.

Remember to update your shortcuts to the new CERN Admin e-guide and send us any comments and suggestions you may have using the feedback form provided on the site.
