Part Of Continuing Public Services Modernisation

May 11, 2016

Governor George Fergusson, said today [May 11] that new provisions would be issued shortly covering the relationship between the Public Service Commission and senior civil servants.

“These would formalise the annual evaluation and reporting structure, with the independent Public Service Commission taking responsibility for the evaluations, consulting the Premier and relevant Ministers as well as other stakeholders. The Regulations are now near completion, subject to further consultation with Cabinet and the BPSU,” the announcement said.

Mr Fergusson said: “I hope these amendments will be broadly welcomed – they follow calls from across the community, including unions and the wider public, for accountability in this area to be clearer.

“They will be firmly based on the principles of a non-political civil service and are part of the continuing modernisation of public services here, in line with similar processes around the world.”

    Be honest – as long as the Executive and Legislative branches of this government are not separate this is a joke. “Ministers decide and civil servants advise.” There is no accountability for the misappropriation of taxpayers’ money, abuse of power and disregard for the law for political purposes.
