This study reviews the significance of PSM in public sector. The study also instigated whether the western-developed PSM scales will gain validity in a developing Southeast Asian country, as Indonesia. The data are obtained through questionnaire-based surveys which distributed to employees of a public sector organisation that has been experiencing a bureaucracy reform. This organisation has more than 375 offices across the Indonesian archipelago and also more than 37,000 employees. The surveys were conducted in 11 cities. The 583 valid data were analysed using SPSS 20 and LISREL 9.2 to assess factor structure of PSM using exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA).
