I work in a Ministry. Even within a Ministry, there are different schemes.

Generally, i think there is a higher proportion of superscale officers in a Ministry.

Ministry - 'cushion' for superscales
Stat board - 'cushion' for scholars

DOS is a stat board under MTI. In general, there are subtle differences between a stat board and a Ministry, in that a Ministry is more rigid and is bounded by regulations from PSD.

Stat boards are welcome to follow similar "guidelines", but they have more autonomy as compared to the Ministries. In that sense, a Stat board may have more flexibility in negotiating starting salary, ranking and promotion of lower scale officers, more benefits, and different civil service culture etc.

Having said that, culture is usually dedicated by the top guy in the organisation, so if you get a staunch civil servant as your CE/MD in a stat board, the culture will more or less be the same as a Ministry culture.

By cushion, I believe the poster is referring that they are "rearing grounds" for the different type of scholars. Ministries typically have more AOs as compared to Stat boards, where you may have more scholars. Note that AOs are those that are geared to become CE/MD/PS in the civil service should they not screw up, and not all scholars are AOs.

I think not to mislead the original poster, DOS is not a stat board. It is a National Statistical Authority that exists as a Department. To sum it up, the Government consists of Ministries, Departments, Statutory Boards and Organs of State. For e.g., Accountant-General's Dept (AGD), the Home Team Depts such as Civil Defence, Police, Prisons etc are departments.

Though the wiki list is not the most updated (e.g. MICA), can glance thru' it for a better idea. Organisation of the Government of Singapore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
