The Civil Service Establishment (General) Order Resolution 2014 was approved by the House of Representatives, on Tuesday, February 3.

In piloting the legislation, Minister with Responsibility for Public Service in the Ministry of Finance and Planning, Hon. Horace Dalley, noted that the Order indicates changes that have been made in the civil service establishment since 2013.

He explained that part one refers to posts that were established, part two reflects changes to the salaries attached to those posts, and part three of the Order shows post in the public service that were abolished.

The Order also outlines reclassification and upgrading of posts, and the effective dates of the changes.

“It’s the general thrust of the government to create more efficiency in the system to ensure that posts, which have been there on the establishment not being utilised, that the system is cleaned up and that we have an efficient civil service establishment,” Mr. Dalley said.

As outlined in the Order, 150 new posts were created, 223 posts were upgraded, 259 reclassified and 415 re-titled. In addition, 3,001 posts were abolished from the establishment of several Ministries and Departments, and one post re-graded.
