These functions include Appointment, Separation, Discipline, and some aspects of Training. As it relates to training, the selection of persons for training where the subject matter is directly linked to the mandate of the ministry and/or where eligibility is restricted to only those public officers within the ministry.
Selection of candidates in circumstances that extend beyond the boundary of individual ministries, e.g. National training programs, scholarships, etc. will continue to be conducted by the Public Service Commission. In addition to this, approval for acceptance of scholarships remains the purview of the Public Service Commission.
