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 Public Service Official Languages Exclusion Approval Order sets out the situations whereby, for non-imperative appointments, public servants may be exempted from the obligation of meeting the official language requirements of their bilingual positions within a specific timeline. On a yearly basis, deputy heads of federal departments and agencies governed by the Public Service Employment Act must report to the Public Service Commission of Canada on the use of the order and the Public Service Official Languages Appointment Regulations. As a result of the reporting from deputy heads, cases of employees who do not meet the language requirements of their bilingual positions within the timelines are identified as non-compliant. The Public Service Commission supports organizations in resolving these situations.

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.
