16 endorsed by the Public Service Commissioner had Public Service Act Section 26 reports prepared and issued under the Commissioner's signature for finalisation through the Cabinet Committee on Establishment and Executive Council process. Following the March restructuring of Departments, a major review of all Departments and Authorities was undertaken to ensure that staffing profiles agreed with the maximum staffing level totals as set by Cabinet. It was also decided at that time that maximum staffing allocation was to be synonymous with establishment and in future would be referred to as Maximum Staffing Level. Interpers Interpers is a computerised service-wide system that allows user Departments and Authorities to record and manage their staffing arrangements. In addition, the data held on Interpers is used by the Office to help describe the physical characteristics of the public sector in such areas as recruitment and training. The data is also used for equal opportunity studies and other requirements by various Departments which need service-wide data. As a result of a review conducted late in the 85/86 financial year, two reporting systems, namely the Staffing Levels and the Staffing Schedules were implemented. Other improvements are planned to the operational and management reports for the user departments along with the introduction of data validation routines and the extension of online editing controls. As part of the data validation, the payroll will be analysed and compared with the data on Interpers, to improve accuracy and flow of information into the systems used for Management and Planning.
