Abstract
The country's administrative system, despite all efforts to reform it, still lacks the necessary efficiency and
accountability; one of the main reasons is the neglect of meritocracy and its fundamental role in the evolution and
health of the administrative system. Therefore, the present study investigates the relationship between meritocracy
and administrative system health with respect to the mediating role of Mackenzie model (2014) variables. This
research was applied in terms of purpose, and done as descriptive-survey. The statistical population of the study was
950 middle managers of government organizations in Golestan province. The sample size was 274 according to
Krejcie and Morgan table and simple random sampling method was used for sampling. Data analysis was performed
by structural equation method with Smart PLS software. The results showed that there was no significant
relationship between meritocracy with the variables of social responsibility and knowledge management, but there
was a direct and significant relationship between meritocracy with the variables of administrative system health,
organizational justice, social capital, organizational ethics, job performance, and empowerment. Also, there was an
inverse and significant relationship between meritocracy and political behavior, and there was a direct and
significant relationship between social responsibility, organizational justice, social capital, organizational ethics, job
performance, empowerment with the health of the administrative system. There was a significant inverse
relationship between political behavior and the health of administrative system and also there was no significant
relationship between knowledge management and the health of administrative system. The findings also confirmed
the mediating role of organizational justice, political behavior, social capital, organizational ethics, job performance,
and empowerment, and did not confirm the mediating role of social responsibility and knowledge management
