As the holder of a statutory office the Commissioner acts independently in a range of matters to do with the operation of the Public Service and the State sector.
As Chief Executive of the State Services Commission (SSC), the department that supports the Commissioner in the performance of this role, the Commissioner is responsible to the Minister of State Services for the SSC's capability and performance.
