Abstract

It is the government role in providing infra-structure and basic amenities for the public. In Malaysia the Work Ministry is formed to oversee this role. Ensuring effectiveness and efficiency, the Public Service Department must identify competencies require for every position created in the Work Ministry and one such position is the position of Quantity surveyor. Research thus far shows that individual employees performance is not just built around technical expertise possess but also important is the behaviour. Since organization successes stand on its employees performance thus it is utmost important for organization to identify not only the right technical but also behavioural competencies for each and every individual position created. This paper discusses the need to explore competencies of exceptional Quantity surveyors and in the process suggests the means to identify those competencies. It is also argued that undertaking this heavy task cannot be accomplished without the participation of experienced public Quantity surveyors. The importance of competencies model for Quantity surveyors is also discussed in relation to human capital development which includes promotion, training, and recruitment of young Quantity surveyors to serve the public service.
