Welcome to the Office of the Services Commissions





Over the past sixty years, the Office of the Services Commissions, being the Secretariat for the four (4) Services Commissions within Central and Local Government, has sought to ensure that appointments, promotions and selections for training are done on the basis of merit and that the disciplinary and separation processes are properly managed.

The Office of the Services Commissions also provides centralised stenotype services to all ministries, departments and executive agencies for recording the proceedings of conferences, commissions of enquires and disciplinary enquiries.

Under the Constitution of Jamaica, the Governor-General acting on the advice of the Public Service Commission, the Police Service Commission and the Judicial Service Commission has the power to make appointments to public offices, to exercise disciplinary control, and to remove persons holding or acting in any such office.
