Three agencies are preparing for a coordinated approach to the market. Do they all need to notify their individual vacancies in the Gazette?
No. Agencies can each notify their own individual vacancy in the Public Service Gazette. Alternatively, they can rely on a single notice that lists all agencies involved. Each agency might also promote the joint opportunity on their individual websites.
The APSJobs website will be upgraded to allow an agency to notify a vacancy as 'various agencies'. Participating agencies can be listed within the notice.
The minimum requirement is for a vacancy to be brought to the attention of the community in a manner that supports reasonable opportunity for applicants to apply.
Why do I need to notify an ISAC engagement but no other engagements?
The requirement to notify outcomes from an ISAC recommendation is found in the Public Service Regulations 1999. Regulation 4.10 requires that agencies notify engagement, promotion or assignment of duties decisions following an ISAC recommendation.
