A Brief History
The concept of a Public Sector Special Interest group focused on testing and assessment issues in public sector recruiting was first made public in 2012. A dedicated group of organizations, lead by ATP in concert with the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO), planned and launched an inaugural International Public Sector Assessment for Recruitment Conference (IPSAR) in Madrid. The conference was supported by the Instituto Nacional de Administracion Publica, CEB/SHL, Prometric and Hudson, and was well received by attendees from a number of public offices across Europe and the Americas. Presentations from the conference can be downloaded from this link: PRESENTATIONS. Due to the success of IPSAR the decision was made to create an ongoing special interest group housed by the Association of Test Publishers. In 2014 The ATP Board offically reconized the Public Sector SIG.
In 2014 the ATP Public Sector SIG will be lead by:
Chair: David Bearfield, Director, EPSO
Vice Chair: Martha Helena Lopez, Director of Strategic Planning and Staffing, UN
Secretary: Paula Chadwick, EPSO
