The Cabinet Office ministry with responsibility for Government Reform has issued a Request for Proposal for professional services to review the civil services human resources functions.

The aim is to ensure that the appropriate individuals are accurately placed within a new centralised human resources organisational structure.

In addition to the Government’s main Department of Human Resources, there are ten other smaller Human Resource units throughout the organisation.

With that in mind, the Government wishes to implement a new human resources structure and is seeking an independent human resources specialist to provide professional services to undertake an independent and comprehensive review of the current Human Resources functions.

In 2011 the National School of Government identified deficiencies in the government’s human resource functions and indicated that restructuring was required.

The Sage Commission made a similar recommendation. Matters such as service delivery, succession planning, talent management and the fragmented delivery model have all been cited as areas of concern within the Government.

Interested parties and suitably qualified bidders are encouraged to submit their submissions no later than November 30. The RFP documents can be found on the Government portal starting tomorrow, November 14 at
