The Public Service Commission (PSC) continues to enhance the Priority Administration Program in collaboration with organizations that continue to provide critical input to policy and system changes. In an effort to build on this collaborative approach and to ensure successful communication as the PSC introduces new initiatives or provides new policy direction, we are seeking to create a community of practice for Priority Administration. As such, we are asking organizations to identify a Priority Administration contact as well as a Priority Information Management System (PIMS) Super User for their organization. Depending on the size of your organization, the Priority Administration contact may be the same person that you identify as your PIMS Super User.

1. Priority Administration contact

The Priority Administration contact in your organization will act as a liaison with the PSC for matters related to the Priority Administration Program. Within your organization, the Priority Administration contact will be asked to:

  • Be the point of contact for the PSC on Priority Administration matters;
  • Disseminate information within your organization; and
  • Actively participate, and engage others within your organization, in resolving any issues that may arise with priority persons.

2. Priority Information Management System Super User

The PIMS Super User will be the organizational expert on PIMS, ensuring any system enhancements are effectively understood and communicated. The PIMS Super User will be expected to:

  • Act as an organizational resource on, and maintain current knowledge of, PIMS;
  • Disseminate information within your organization; and
  • Provide training to other staff within your organization.

The PSC will be organizing an information session for PIMS Super Users in early October to introduce the new Priority Portal, a Web-based application that will provide a secure electronic window linked to the PIMS database and will give will priority persons the ability to view, add to or update their personal information. This will be a “train the trainer” session and will provide important information on the roles and responsibilities of organizations. An invitation and further information will be sent to your contact and PIMS Super User.

To confirm the names of your organization’s representative(s), or for any questions, please e-mail Frances.Enns@cfp-psc.gc.ca no later than August 30th.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,
