How does the Commission use an Eligibility List?

Eligibility lists are used when an appointing authority wishes to fill a vacancy in the classified service. After a request is made by the appointing authority, the Civil Service Commission can provide a certified list of the top ten candidates or the top 25%, whichever number is higher. For every extra vacancy one extra name may be added to the certified list. The certified list will be sent to the appropriate department, they must then select a candidate from the provided list of names to fill the vacancy. If a candidate fails to respond to an interview request, fails to appear for an interview, declines the position, or cannot be reached they may be removed from the certified list and eligibility list.
