The Public Service Commission has developed an electronic posting and screening tool called the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS), in part to help deal with high volumes of applications for certain external processes. Eliminating the need to screen by hand, PSRS can effectively screen large volumes of applications for you in a matter of minutes. The system electronically eliminates all applications not meeting the mandatory screening requirements. Additional screening can be done by applying assets, organizational needs, operational requirements and other criteria.
Contact your nearest PSC office for more information.
