The pivotal role in the SPSC is played by its Chairman who is usually a top-ranking civil servant who has made his mark in public service having unblemished personal and professional record. His appointment is aimed at galvanizing the people’s confidence in the institution and assuring that it is in safe hands. The Chairman heads a competent board comprising experienced individuals well versed in their respective fields who aid and assist him in running the institution.
On the functional side, the SPSC invites applications through placing advertisements seeking desirous individuals for various posts and positions based upon a standard process which involves a pre-written (screening test) and the written examination followed by interview.

While doing so it also remains mindful of its responsibilities as the custodian of prevailing best practices with respect to competitive examinations and the need to retain the requirements of discretion. It must always be borne in mind that SPSC entertains a helpful attitude towards the aspirants desirous to join the prestigious civil service and offers updated syllabi with more appropriate ability-assessment criteria.
