SUBJECT: Agency Reduction Transfer List and Reemployment Roster Appointments
– Special Considerations
This Policy Bulletin identifies two situations that appointing authorities
may encounter in administering ARTL and Reemployment Rosters, and provides
policy and procedures to use in those situations.
- Under certain circumstances, individuals on Agency Reduction Transfer
Lists (ARTLs) or Reemployment Rosters (RRs) may not be fully qualified
for appointment to specific titles which require “special qualifications”.
These include titles with physical and/or medical standards, required
background checks, completion of specified course work, or possession
of certifications or licensure in required areas. For such titles,
the appointing agency is required to determine that individuals on
ARTLs and RRs are fully qualified for appointment. Questions concerning
specific situations should be addressed to the Career Mobility Office
at (518) 485-6199.
- ARTL and Reemployment Roster appropriate-title determinations involving
traineeship titles often specify appointment eligibility at a particular
salary grade level. For example, a Senior Personnel Administrator
vacancy may be filled at the Trainee 2 level by an ARTL or RR candidate
whose eligibility derives from permanent service as a Senior Budgeting
Analyst and subsequent layoff (or targeting). While the specified
fill level for this type of appointment is Trainee 2, an agency has
the option to fill at the Senior level if the ARTL/RR eligible meets
the normal criteria for transfer (e.g. via §§52.6 or 70.1).
Please note that such transactions should be submitted as ARTL/RR
appointments, NOT as transfers.
