Management-initiated Retirement Scheme

The Management-initiated Retirement Scheme was introduced in the civil service in September 2000 as a management tool to provide for the retirement of directorate civil servants on pensionable and permanent terms to facilitate improvement in the government organization. The Scheme provides a management tool that allows the injection of new blood by creating space at the directorate ranks, and helps to maintain the quality of senior management.

Various procedural safeguards have been built in to ensure that the Scheme is invoked only where sufficiently justified. All cases are considered at the highest level of the Administration and assessed by a panel chaired by the Secretary for the Civil Service comprising various senior officials to ensure that they are processed on a fair and objective basis. Recommendations of the panel are subject to the advice of the independent Public Service Commission.

Officers who retire under the Scheme will be granted pension benefits in accordance with the pensions legislation.
