State Management Personnel Manual

0000 Introduction

0020 Purpose of the Manual


The primary purpose of the Manual is to enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of New York State public personnel management through a promotion of a flexible application of personnel policy, consistent with merit system requirements. This should, in turn:

  • strengthen the management of agency human resources by providing personnel professionals with a ready source of current information regarding inter-pretation of the Civil Service Law, rules and regulations, policies, and procedures;
  • facilitate the training of newly appointed personnel administrators and personnel officers; and,
  • facilitate the decentralization to the agencies of those elements of State personnel management which should, most appropriately, be handled by the individual agencies.
