Stop shuffling deputy ministers: study
Rapid changes take toll on efficiency of PS, expert charges

By Kathryn May, The Ottawa Citizen

OTTAWA — The Harper government should stop the "mad merry-go-round" of deputy ministers bouncing from department to department and keep them in the same job for a minimum of five years, says a new study on the public service.

June 9, 2009:

Over on the public service side, the relative numbers are even more dramatic.

Liberals: 24 appointments over eight years.

Progressive Conservatives: 37 in five and a half years or so.

Now some of these announcements were onesies and twosies, that is one appointment at a time.

In other cases, like the one made today, the changes have involved seven or eight people in different departments.
