The existence of mono-loyalty in the simultaneous system of centralization and decentralization in Indonesia is used by the authorities to control the bureaucratic structure. Several problems occur in personnel management, however. The existence of mono-loyalty also has implications for regional employment patterns. The changes in staffing patterns are highlighted in the Regional Government of the East Java Province through the Staff Agency Bureau (BKD) of the East Java Province. The study’s aim is to describe the staffing pattern of the Regional Government of the East Java Province and evaluate its effectiveness. This study follows a descriptive design with a qualitative approach, and observations, interviews, and documentation were conducted to feed into the data-analysis process. The results revealed a paradigm shift in organizing and conducting government bureaucracy, followed by changes in staffing patterns in local government. The regional government of East Java Province has adopted an integrated pattern, one that combines elements of centralization and decentralization. The use of this pattern follows the theory of effectiveness, but in its implementation, there is no risk management that guides the continuity of the pattern in achieving the stated organizational goals.
