The process is conducted by the independent Civil Service Commission in line with statute and the Government has no plans to change this. The Commission appoints a panel to carry out the process. In recent competitions, the panel has consisted of the Cabinet Secretary, a senior Civil Service Commissioner, a non-executive director from the relevant department and an external stakeholder - which in the case of the DPP might be a Court of Appeal judge.</p><p> </p></blockquote> more like this
