In accordance with its statutory obligations the Commission establishes four panels (with the exception of the panel of legal representatives) for a period not exceeding three (3) years.
In the final year of the three-year cycle, the Commission undertakes a recruitment campaign for the panels. The panels are advertised via the Commission’s website, the national media, websites and journals of relevant professional bodies and various other relevant platforms.
Candidates are required to go through a specified application, selection and interview process. Existing panel members must reapply to be on the new panels and are required to go through the same processes as any new applicants who were not previously on the panels. Successful candidates are required to provide reference checks, complete security clearance and participate in specified mandatory training for panel members before they can be appointed to the relevant panel.
The appointment process is competitive and appointments are awarded on a contract for services basis. Panel members are not employees of the Commission.
The current panels are in place from 1 November 2019 to 31 October 2022.
