This chapter examines the public management practices of the successive Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT) governments over the last decade, focusing on the area of machinery of government and human resource management. It tracks policies of state expansion and explores the management of public sector pay and employment as well as civil service recruitment and career development functions. It depicts a federal administration that has adapted to its particular governance imperatives a set of incongruous practices that pair rigid Weberian formalism-with its protection of meritocracy and its tendency toward ossified, unresponsive public bureaucracies-with flexible appointment and rewards behaviors largely unrelated to performance criteria.

Keywords:   public management, performance, civil service, human resource management, Weberianism
