The Civil Service Act of 1973 established the Civil Service Agency (CSA) and defined the Civil Service as comprising all government employees in the civil administration of the country, excluding elected and appointed officials as well as paramilitary, military, and security or Law Enforcement personnel, but inclusive of teachers and health workers. The CSA manages personnel recruitment, including but not limited to, conducting civil service examinations for classified positions within the Service. In furtherance of its Mandate areas, the Government of Liberia, through the National Legislature, passed into law on October 4, 2019, the National Standardization and Remuneration Act, authorizing the Civil Service Agency and the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning to determine and implement a pay and grade system across all spending entities. This Act, in principle, provides the legal framework and establishes the basis for carrying out critical reform in the Pay Administration of the Government of Liberia.
