CIVIL SERVICE JOB EVALUATION EXERCISE ROLLS INTO 2ND PHASE
The Chief Personnel Officer, Commander Dr. Daryl Dindial, wishes to advise that the Civil Service Job Evaluation Exercise, initiated on the 1st of July, 2020, has successfully entered the second phase, involving ‘Job Analysis’ from February 22nd 2021. This is in keeping with the project deliverables between the Personnel Department (Office of the Chief Personnel Officer) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Limited for the conduct of a Job Evaluation and Compensation Exercise (for offices in the Civil Service, including the Tobago House of Assembly and Statutory Authorities, subject to the Statutory Authorities Act, Chapter 24:01.).
In this phase of the project, approximately 4953 Position Analysis Questionnaires (PAQs) would be delivered and administered to the various Ministries and Departments through 3 ‘Role Holders’ for each position to facilitate the job analysis. Based on the information consolidated from the PAQs, the 3rd phase of the project would then involve the drafting of some 1651 ‘Job Descriptions’ and the required validation by Line Managers and Permanent Secretaries/Heads of Department. Over the next few months, the Personnel Department and the PwC teams would be conducting the required interviews and validation sessions for all of the jobs identified.
On completion of these phases, the fourth phase of the project would commence with the establishment of a Job Evaluation Committees (J.E.C.). The J.EC.s would include Personnel Department, PwC along with the Public Services Association (PSA) representatives, who would be trained in the current Job Evaluation System methodologies to evaluate all of the jobs, which are targeted to be completed on or before March 2022.
As we continue moving the project towards its successful completion, it is envisaged that at the end of the project, the Civil Service will have a new Job Evaluation and Compensation System that can impact positively on the effective and efficient delivery of services across the public service in Trinidad and Tobago.
