Apart from the Director General of Public Service (DGPS) who is the pillar and head of the Public Service Department, the second most important position and one that helps to ensure the vision and mission of the DGPS are translated into action is the Deputy Director General of Public Service or Deputy DGPS. Based on records, the post of Deputy DGPS was established from as early as the establishment of the Malayan Establishment Office in 1934. At that time, the title was known as Deputy Malayan Establishment Officer. It was changed to Deputy Federation Establishment Officer in 1954, Federal Establishment Officer (1959), and Deputy Principal Establishment Officer (1967). The title was again changed to Deputy Director General of Public Service in 1968.
