Financial, political, and economic forces are changing the roles of personnel managers in UK local governments. A summer 1990 survey conducted by the Society of Chief Personnel Officers in Local Government revealed that personnel-related decisions were increasingly being made by line managers. Nearly two-thirds of the personnel officers stated that they had either transferred the personnel decision-making function to line managers or were planning to transfer the function in the near future. Some decisions, such as decisions requiring specialized knowledge, were still made by personnel officers.
