Abstract

On the 4 May 2000 General Council report 1368 formally introduced the Performance Management and Development System (PMDS) into the Irish Civil Service. A performance management system up until this point had not been formally practiced in the Civil Service despite previous attempts to do so. What was different this time around was political support for the introduction of the system, top management support and the social partnership agreements provided a means for linking increases in pay subject to progress on modernization agenda. This dissertation will explore the concept of performance management and its application in the Department of Finance with special emphasis on the opinions of staff.
