Civil Service Reform

In July 2014 the government asked Sir Gerry Grimstone to lead a triennial review of the Civil Service Commission.

The review concludes that the functions performed by the Commission are still required and that it should be retained as an executive non-departmental public body.

The review also looked at whether the Commissions remit should be extended or amended to support the civil service in facing its future challenges. The report makes 31 recommendations in response to this.

Minister for Cabinet Office Francis Maude said:

We welcome this review and will consider its recommendations carefully. I thank Sir Gerry, and the contributors, for their work.
