Redrawing the Lines

Service Commissions and the Delegation of Personal Management

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.
