Annual Report 2021
2021 marked the Commission’s 17th year as regulator of recruitment and selection in the public service. Since the CPSA’s inception, we have played a key role in promoting values of fairness and transparency. We have supported Offices and Departments in recruiting high quality employees and helped to promote confidence in services provided to the public.
The Office of the Commission continued its work to strengthen engagement with public bodies and to ensure a thorough understanding of their obligations, as set out in the Code of Practice. A strong emphasis was placed on the review and appeals procedures to ensure complaints were dealt with appropriately by public bodies.
After consultation with public bodies throughout 2020 and 2021, the new Code of Practice was published in November 2021. The new singular Code has replaced the previous existing five Codes of Practice. The intention is to provide one clear, unambiguous Code for recruiters under remit and supporting information for candidates on review processes.Download
