Administrative reform criteria structure and assessment scale of General Department of Vietnam Customs would be determined in seven areas, evaluation with each group as below: provincial Customs Departments will be evaluated in seven areas, 36 criteria and 71 component criteria with the scale of 90 points; the Department directly under the General Department of Vietnam Customs will be evaluated in seven areas, 32 criteria and 62 component criteria with the scale of 70 points and the other department will be evaluated on seven areas, 22 criteria and 38 component criteria with the scale of 50 points.

The areas, criteria and components of the administrative reform criteria of each group as well as each component criteria for marking instruction are specified in the Appendix issued together with Decision 1500/QD-TCHQ on May 24by the General Director of Vietnam Customs.

The conversion coefficient among groups on a scale of 100 is as follows: for the provincial customs departments, K1 = 10/9, for the departments directly under the General Department of Vietnam Customs is K2 = 10/7, for other departments of General Department of Vietnam Customs is K3 = 10/5.
