The independent selection advisory committee (ISAC) works in partnership with the agency.
However, the committee operates under the powers of the Merit Protection Commissioner (Regulation 4.2), not the agency.
- signs a declaration of impartiality
- determines candidate assessment processes and evidence
- forms an independent judgement about candidates and cannot be directed.
The convenor has had special training in merit-based staff selection. The other 2 members also receive best-practice selection training.
