The importance of public institutions in the lives of people in Nigeria since independence cannot be over emphasized. Their roles in development across the three tiers of government have made them come within the domain of public discourse especially with regards to their viability and efficiency in service delivery to the Nigerian citizenry. This has also been same for the Plateau State Local Government Service Commission. Therefore, as a result of this concern, this study examined and analyzed how the Plateau State Local Government Service Commission has been able to provide service delivery at the Third Tier of government in Plateau State within the period under study. Besides, the study also examined the impact the Commission has made on the career of civil servants at the Local Government level in the State. The study used a multi-disciplinary approach where primary and secondary sources of data were used for making analysis. Hence, the study is significant to the extent that it examined and analyzed the mandate, impacts and challenges of the Local Government Service Commission in Plateau State within the period under study. The study observed that the Commission has been bedeviled by challenges such as corruption, indiscipline and politicization of the service amongst others. As a result of these, the study recommended the need for staff members to change their attitude to work and also the need for the Plateau State Local Government Service Commission to quarterly engage the services of external auditors to check on the staff payroll list in order to ensure that only the right people are being paid instead of fictitious ones amongst others.
