The National Evaluation and Productivity Commission (CNEP) comprises five members appointed by the President of the Republic for five-year terms. These appointments can be immediately renewed for another consecutive period, should they choose to do so, once the supreme decree has been fully processed. The renewals occur in annual increments, with members serving on an ad-honorem basis.
Additionally, representatives from the Budget Office of the Ministry of Finance, the Undersecretary of Social Evaluation of the Ministry of Social Development and Family, and the Undersecretary of Economy of the Ministry of Economy participate in the CNEP council, with the right to voice their opinions.
These advisors are esteemed academics and professionals responsible for analyzing and identifying obstacles that hinder productivity due to public sector regulation or management. The council must pinpoint the absence of public goods, insufficient coordination or access to capital, and productive gaps in human capital, technology, and other factors that constrain or limit entrepreneurship and the growth of industries or sectors. They are also tasked with proposing the necessary actions to address these issues.
The transitory article of Supreme Decree No. 1,510 of 2021 stipulates, “The first appointment of Commission members must specify their respective terms.”
Following that, the duration of the current CNEP council will be as follows:
Raphael Bergoeing, three years.
Pamela Jervis, one year.
Susanna Mondschein, four years.
Dusan Paredes, two years.
Andrés Zahler, five years.
