Population data refers to the number of active employees in organizations under the exclusive appointment authority of the Public Service Commission (PSC) (employees of organizations named in the Financial Administration Act — Schedule I, most of Schedule IV and some agencies in Schedule V). This differs from numbers reported by the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) that reflect employment in organizations under the Public Service Staff Relations Act. In addition, a number of separate agencies are subject to Part 7 of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA), which administers the political activities of public servants. The population count represents the number of active employees at a specific point in time.

The investigations function plays an important role in the Public Service Commission’s (PSC) accountability to Parliament by helping safeguard the integrity of appointments and by overseeing the political impartiality of the federal public service. Part 5 of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) provides the Commission with the authority to conduct investigations into appointment processes. This includes:

  • Section 66: Merit, errors, omissions or improper conduct in external appointment processes;
  • Subsections 67(1) and (2): For non-delegated appointments, or errors, omissions or improper conduct in internal appointment processes at the request of a deputy head;
  • Section 68: Suspicion of political influence in any appointment process; and
  • Section 69: Suspicion of fraud in any appointment process. Under the PSEA, the Commission also has exclusive authority to conduct investigations into allegations that an employee has failed to comply with subsections 113(1), 114(1) to (3) or 115(1) of the PSEA, that is, they engaged in improper political activity.

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.
