The Public Service Commissioner is appointed by the Queen’s Representative on the advice of the Prime Minister and has collective accountability with Cabinet for the performance of the public service. The Commissioner provides strategic policy advice to Cabinet, sets human resources policy for the Public Service and is the Manager for Heads of Ministries. Our office is open between the hours of 8am and 4pm (GMT-10hrs), Monday to Friday.
During the 2013/14 year the centralised HR system was introduced to replace fragmented HR systems across the public sector ensuring the integrity of HR and payroll data. 2014/15 saw all government agencies on Rarotonga using this electronic system which provides the opportunity to maintain a current database to inform future training and development requirements.
The database is administered by OPSC while the payroll component of the system is administered by MFEM. The ESS module provided employees and managers access to HR and payroll data. With employees taking responsibility for submitting and recording their own leave, which in turn is monitored and approved through the internal agency hierarchical structure, administrative work has become increasingly efficient. This system also offers a report generating facility for analysis and improved and more informed decision making across government.
