Annex IV

The Public Appointments Commission Secretariat

Due to the timing of the Parliamentary Reporting Process, the Public Appointments Commission Secretariat had produced a Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP) for the 2012–13 fiscal year. Shortly thereafter, on March 29, 2012, the Government announced as part of EAP 2012 that the Public Appointments Commission Secretariat would not continue operating beyond fiscal year 2011–12.

On June 29, 2012, the Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act officially repealed the legislative authority for the Public Appointments Commission and its secretariat.

Since the Public Appointments Commission Secretariat had not been operational since June 2011, no financial resources were expended during the 2012–13 fiscal year. Its budget, as established in the 2012–13 Main Estimates, was returned in full to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
