SUBJECT: Eligible List Certifications
Periodically problems come up with the use of eligible list certifications.
Please be sure that your staff is aware of the following guidelines:
- An eligible list certification can be used only for the location
for which it was drawn. Appointments cannot be made for locations
other than the location shown on the eligible list certification.
- When requesting certifications, be sure to request them for the
precise location of the position. Do not canvass a certification for
a position in any location other than the one shown on the certification.
Your cooperation in adhering to the above guidelines will help reduce
the number of appointment transactions that must be changed or disapproved.
If you have any questions concerning this procedure, please contact Lilias
Bartels of our Employment Records Section. Her telephone number is (518)
