Abstract 
Angelina Muganza, executive secretary of Rwanda’s Public Service Commission, describes the practical challenges of setting up a new civil service commission. Rwanda’s commission was established in 2007, and Muganza led the process of staffing the commission, communicating its role to government agencies, and assuring its independence. The commission took over the supervision of civil service from Rwanda’s Ministry of Public Service and Labor (MIFOTRA), but whereas MIFOTRA had only supervised the recruitment process, the Public Service Commission standardized and centralized the process.
