To establish a platform to further increase opportunities for efficiencies and consistencies across the government, as of September 2019, the secretariat also coordinates the recruitment process for public agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs).
The centralized recruitment function will strengthen board governance by reducing timelines and increasing certainty of processes and responsiveness to ensure the appropriate skills and competencies are represented on boards.
The PAS has 3 primary functions:
- coordinate the centralized recruitment function for appointments to ABCs
- provide assistance, tools and advice to departments and public agencies to outline best practices in public agency governance and legislative requirements
- provide information to Albertans to increase public awareness about the role of public agencies and the value of serving on a public agency
The secretariat provides information to Albertans to increase public awareness about the role of public agencies and the value of serving on a board. It also provides advice, tools and templates to promote best practices in public agency governance across government.
