Bureaucrats were a functional substitute for parties during the dictatorship (Constantino and Carrillo, 1994: 688), and the emergence of a civil service as the main instrument of political recruitment increased the power of the corps and their self-regulation with regard to the system of promotion, appointments to particular posts, and pay. Hidden under the label of technocrats (many of them sharing membership in the traditionalist Catholic organization Opus Dei), top officials were conservative and supported the dictatorship.

Moreover, reform weakened the corps to some degree. There were mergers of the more fragmented corps, generalists were encouraged, and positions in the public sector were reclassified to reduce the power of the corps. Under these reforms, pay was determined by the post occupied (thus it remained indirectly related to the corps because posts, although not reserved, tend to be filled by the same corps) and productivity. However, while the Socialist government fostered the relative politicization of the bureaucratic élite through the system of free designation among civil servants for top posts, powerful corps are still the main features of the administration.
