Since April 2018, all organizations are required to use a results reporting structure based on the Policy on Results, which consists of a Departmental Results Framework (DRF) and a Program Inventory. The Policy on Results sets out the fundamental requirements for federal departmental accountability for performance information and evaluation, while highlighting the importance of results in management and spending decision making, as well as public reporting. It seeks to improve the achievement of results across government and enhancing understanding of the results the government seeks to achieve, does achieve, and the resources used to so. A Departmental Results Framework describes:
- What the department does (i.e Core Responsibility)
- What results the department is trying to achieve (i.e Departmental Results) and,
- How progress will be assessed (i.e Departmental Indicators)
This collection provides the data behind the PSC’s DRF indicators that measure if the PSC is meeting its core responsibility of Public Service Hiring and Non-partisanship.
Hiring activities refers to indeterminate and term appointments to the public service, the hiring of casuals as per subsection 50(1) of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) and the hiring of students under the Student Employment Programs Participants Exclusion Approval Order. Indeterminate and term appointments to the public service include appointments from the general public, including former casuals, students and employees of government organizations that are not subject to the PSEA. Staffing activities to and within the public service include appointments to the public service as well as promotions, lateral and downward movements and acting appointments of indeterminate and term employees. Deployments of employees within or between organizations that are subject to the PSEA are counted in lateral and downward movements.
The SNPS is an important tool for understanding public servants' perceptions of the public service staffing system as well as their awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities regarding political activities. The information gathered in the survey will be used to identify current and emerging trends at government-wide and organizational levels, to inform potential improvements to staffing policies and practices, and better target efforts to safeguard non-partisanship within the federal public service. The survey will provide vital information to managers, human resources advisors and Deputies to improve staffing within their own organizations, and to the Public Service Commission (PSC) on the staffing system as a whole. The information will also be used to support reporting to Parliament via the PSC's Annual Report.

The Survey of Staffing (SOS) is a tool that the Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC) uses to monitor employees’ perceptions of staffing activity within the federal public service and to gauge awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities regarding political activities.
As part of the pilot System-Wide Staffing Audit (pilot audit), a questionnaire was administered to sub-delegated persons and staffing advisors associated with the sample of 386 appointments across the 25 organizations participating in the pilot audit. The purpose of the questionnaire was to provide the Public Service Commission (PSC) with a better understanding of the staffing environment and to contextualize findings of the pilot audit, by gauging these stakeholders’ awareness and understanding of the New Direction in Staffing (NDS), and of their own roles and responsibilities.
These questionnaire results represent a “snapshot” in time: responses were gathered during the early summer of 2017, and were based on perceptions one year after the implementation of the NDS in April 2016. These results were integrated with pilot audit findings stemming from the review of organizational staffing systems and compliance of appointments, which was finalized in 2018.
