Are there other things I should know about being on a committee?

Things to know about being on a promotion review (PRC) or independent selection advisory (ISAC) committee:

  • while serving as a committee member, your salary is paid by your agency and you are 'on duty' for leave and other purposes.
  • ISACs are usually convened in the capital city where the job is located—video conferencing is an option.
  • PRCs are usually convened in the capital city where the job is located but the committee members do not need to be in one location. A PRC assessment can be made on the papers without interview.
  • there is no set time for committee involvement—it depends upon the type and size of the exercise.
  • personal information forwarded in your application is subject to privacy requirements. More detail about privacy collection notices for ISAC and PRC nominees is available.
  • there is no guarantee that you will be asked to participate in a committee.
