Finally, how can agencies help minimise delays in finalising a recruitment process?

Promotion reviews operate most efficiently and effectively if agencies:

  • keep clear and accessible records of who applied for which job and provide information promptly to the Office of the Merit Protection Commissioner.
  • publish promotions arising from a recruitment exercise in a single edition of the Public Service Gazette.

There can be substantial delays in finalising the promotion review process when promotions are not notified in a single Gazette. 
This is because multiple review applications can be made over successive gazettes.

An checklist for for the agency is available.
