It is perceived that the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) has, after the abolition of the rank and leg promotions system in 2000, a problem with career management and more specific with career progression, of their employees. After the restructuring of the Public Service it seems as if employees are stuck on a salary level and that no progression is possible. The Faculty of Military Science employs Military University Educators (MUEs) whose primary function is to lecture military personnel of the Department of Defence (DoD) on a tertiary level. The Staff Development and Service Conditions Committee of this Faculty, in conjunction with the Directorate Service Systems of the DoD, developed a Personnel Management Code (PMC) for MUEs over the past nine years that addresses career management and career progression. Included in this PMC is a career path model that is proposed as a benchmark for career pathing within the Public Service of South Africa, especially for the professional dispensations.
