Royal Civil Service
|Royal Civil Service|
|Current Head: No single head|
|Function: Nonpartisan branch of the State dedicated to various apolitical tasks|
The Royal Civil Service is the branch of the State that supplanted the Royal Household pursuant to the Royal Civil Service (Establishment) Bill of 2018. These officers retain their positions between changes of Government, and may only be dismissed for cause.
It was initially administered by a Commissioner; however, that office was abolished in 2019. The appointment of Permanent Secretaries is now recommended by the relevant Minister.
See also The Seneschál's List.
The Royal Civil Service encompasses a number of nonpartisan statutory offices, listed in the order they appear into law:
|Chancery||Secretary of State||Txec Róibeard Nordselva||Administration of elections and the legislative process|
|Scribery||Scribe of Abbavilla||Recording Talossan law|
|Archives||Royal Archivist||Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h||Preserving historical information|
|Treasury||Burgermeister of Inland Revenue||Istefan Perþonest, S.H.||Holding Talossa's financial assets|
|Royal Society||President||Ián M.T. Tamorán, S.H.||Promoting academic study|
Permanent Secretaries are members of the Royal Civil Service who lead Offices within the various Cabinet ministries. These offices are not set into law; rather, the relevant Minister publishes a job description for the position, and the King then appoints a candidate to the post (see El Lexhatx C.1.1.1). Previously, the Royal Civil Service Commission was responsible for the process.
Permanent Secretaries are appointed to indefinite terms, akin to the other offices of the Royal Civil Service.
There are currently two permanent secretary posts: the Permanent Secretary for Immigration who is responsible to the Ministry of the Interior and handles the management of all administrative tasks related to immigration, and the Permanent Secretary for Webmonkey Business and NUMBSkullery, who is responsible to the Ministry of Stuff and assists the Minister in managing and maintaining the Kingdom's official websites.
