No. To preserve the role of independence, the Merit Commissioner does not provide any staffing advice; providing that type of advice is outside the Merit Commissioner’s mandate. It is the role of the BC Public Service Agency to:  

  • Provide staffing guidance and advice on best practices 
  • Set human resource policies 
  • Set the Accountability Framework for Human Resource Management 

We describe our findings on fair and unfair hiring process through individual audit reports and our annual Merit Performance Audit report which also includes illustrative case studies.
