Required Diversity Data

At the State Civil Service Commission meeting of December 9, 2008, the Commission directed that effective immediately, when submitting requests for jurisdictional classification of positions outside the competitive class, agencies shall include a statement as to how they will use the appointment flexibility associated with such jurisdictional classifications to diversify their workforce, should their requests be approved by the Commission. Please take steps to ensure that this information is set forth in your agency's letter of request to the Commission. You should contact the Office of Commission Operations at 518-473-6598 if you have any questions.
