Establishing The Public Service Act of 1901
Abolishing The Public Service Acts Amendment Act of 1920
Administered The Public Service Act of 1896
Back to Top
"The Public Service Act of 1901" abolished the Public Service Board as it was then constituted, and the term "Board" was construed to mean not less than two members of the Executive Council sitting as a Public Service Board.

The Public Service Board had powers to create regulations and make recommendations with respect to: the general administration of the Service; staff selection and registration; Public Service examinations and scholarships; staff training, promotions, retirement, leave, accommodation, etc.; Public Service expenditure; the classification of Public Service officers; and the determination of salaries and wages. As part of the Public Service Board's responsibility for the efficient, economic and general operations of the Public Service and Government Departments, the Board made inspections, inquiries, investigations and recommendations with regards to these matters.

The Board produced an annual Classified List of Officers as required under sec. 53 of the Act.

Executive Council administration continued until 1920 when "The Public Service Act Amendment Act of 1920" provided for the appointment of a Public Service Commissioner.
