The Civil Service Commission is a federal agency which regulates the hiring of government employees.

After the bitter divisions created by Civil War Reconstruction, a consensus emerged to do away with the spoils system and recruit a permanent professional class of government employees, bureaucrats, and managers who would not be subject to political cronyism and patronage. Democrat President James Garfield and Republican Theodore Roosevelt are usually associated with originating and implementing the new system of hiring federal employees.
