    Except for one file dealing with a Central Administration position, all the files in this series relate to the positions in the Divisions of Tourism, and Immigration and Ethnic Affairs. Form most of the Tourism Divisions positions there are two files which seems to suggest that both the Tourism Division and Central Administration maintained a file for each position, but at some time the Division must have sent its files to Central Administration for amalgamation.

    Contents of the files include advertisements for positions, correspondence with the Public Service Board, correspondence between the Division and the Department, completed PSB forms relating to appointment and employment, selection and interview reports and duty statements. the only documents in all the files for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs positions are summary sheets, containing details of the occupants of the positions.

    While the Date Range of the contents is back to 1967, most files cover the years 1974 to 1978, and the series probably dates from 1976 when it seems the multiple number system was introduced, and the 75 prefix was allocated. It probably finished in 1981 when the Ministry of Economic Development was established an new prefix number was allocated.
