The members of the department’s board who are responsible for ensuring the proper application of the business appointment rules for senior civil servants are the Department’s Permanent Secretary and Director Generals.

Business Appointment Rules applications submitted by former Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and Director Generals are managed by the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments with the final decision being made by the Prime Minister rather than the department.
