Performance of an individual has a bearing on the unit, the unit on the department; the department on the directorate and directorate on the whole Government Department and Government Department on the entire Government provided a particular Government Department focuses and delivers on the core functions of the Government Department, were support services internally also understands their role within the core function of the Government Department.
