Function

The Public Service Personnel Management Review Committee (Panel) was appointed in 1990 by the Victorian Government to review the public service personnel management function of the Public Service Board.

The purpose of the review was to recommend an allocation of the personnel management powers and responsibilities in Victorian public service employment which contributed to maximum efficiency and effectiveness while upholding the fundamental principles of merit protection and equal employment opportunity.

The Reviews Terms of Reference

The review was to examine and make recommendations on necessary changes to personnel arrangements undertaken by the Public Service Board, ie:

The role and responsibilities of public service agencies in personnel management;
Measures for promoting organisational effectiveness in public sector agencies;
Measures to promote both equity and merit in public service employment;
Amendments to the Public Service Act to give effect to measures recommended.

The Review Committee consisted of officials, academics and experts from various government and non-government organisations.

The Committees activities (lasting eight weeks) included:

Gathering and analysing information on the role and responsibilities of the PSB in personnel management and on recent developments in this field in Australia and other countries

Forming working groups to consider particular groups of personnel management functions:
* Organisation and Management (SES Management and Development, Executive Search, Staff Development, Management Improvement, incl. management consultancy)

* Personnel Structures and Process (recruitment and classification of offices, promotion and transfers, redeployment)

* Protection and Equity (merit protection, EEO, grievances, discipline);

Holding meetings with public servants and public meetings in Melbourne and regional centres (incl. panel meetings and round table conferences);

Calling for submissions from interested organisations, groups and individuals.

The Review Committee submitted the Issues Paper (November 1990), then the Interim Report (December 1990) which set out the issues raised through the review and analysed the ways in which they might be tackled.
