    Summary
    During the last decade, international research literature on the public and private sectors has universally reported a significant relationship between Human Resource Management (HRM) practices and organizational performance. The mechanisms and interactions through which HRM leads to organizational success, however, remain largely unexplained. This research project aims to explore further the relationship between HRM decisions and organizational performance in the public sector. In order to meet this objective, first the evidence from international research literature regarding the performance appraisal – organizational performance relationship was summarized and propositions to describe effects between interacting variables were formulated. Computer modelling was then used to represent the causal structures within the evidence-based framework.
