image of Redrawing the Lines

This publication discusses the difficulties of personnel management in the public sector and explores possible solutions. Specifically, it looks at the decentralisation of personnel management, the implications this has for the role and powers of Service Commissions, and how Commissions have responded to delegation proposals. It attempts to shed light on possible divergences in governments’ and Commissions’ views on public service management issues and it explores options for achieving change.

Delegation of Personnel Responsibilities

Delegation refers to the re-allocation of responsibilities within the central agencies, from the Service Commissions to the central personnel office, and from the centre to the line ministries and departments. Despite the difficulties, there is very significant delegation in personnel management responsibilities in many settings in the Commonwealth.
