Services for non-APS organisations
Information for non-APS organisations
The Merit Protection Commissioner provides a broad range of services to many organisations.
Public Service Regulation 7.4(1)(b) gives the examples of providing services to:
- Commonwealth Authorities to which the Public Service Act 1999 does not apply
- State and Territory departments and authorities
- Local government bodies
- Private corporations and bodies.
The Office of the Merit Protection Commissioner provides a broad range of functions and services. A caveat is that they must relate to the employment of a 'person' or a 'body' (Public Service Regulation 7.4(2)).
These functions include:
- reviewing, investigating or providing advice relating to employment of a person
- providing services connected with selection committees for selecting or employing a person
- providing other services that relate to the employment of a person.
The Merit Protection Commissioner has the discretion to charge a fee. If a fee is charged, it is usually on a cost-recovery basis (Regulation 7.4(3)).
