Civil Service Reform
A capable and motivated civil service is essential for the government’s ability to provide services to the residents of Puerto Rico. A high-performing government requires employees who are well-trained and educated, fairly compensated, and effectively managed.
The administration of Governor Pedro R. Pierluisi and the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico have made deliberate, strategic investments in a comprehensive Civil Service Reform to improve governance and operational capacity across all agencies to strengthen and improve the way government works for the people. Civil Service Reform combines enhancement in compensation with employee evaluations, organizational design, and the recruitment of new government personnel.
