We are a Public Services Commission whose advice and opinions are respected and recognized as authoritative and indicative of best practices in human resource management and development.
We have an important evaluation role in working with agencies to ensure that the Ghana public service is performing effectively and consistently with the Ghana public service values.
However, the third Republican Constitution of 1979 restored the position of the PSC in the scheme of managing human resource within the public sector. The drafters of the 1979 constitution reported that “We remain convinced that the only dependable way of guaranteeing the independence and integrity of the Public Service is to remove them from the direct or indirect control of the Executive.
We, therefore, propose that the Public services Commission should be retained in the constitution as the controlling authority of the Public Services,with the responsibility and power to advise on the appointment of persons to hold offices in the Public Services, except in case where the power to advise is entrusted by the constitution to another authority.” they emphasized as that “the only way of getting (our) Public Services back to the required level of efficiency is to propose that the Constitution should state firmly and unequivocally that no member of the Public Services shall be victimized or discriminated against, for having discharged his duties faithfully in accordance with the Constitution.”
