Tentative Eligible Lists
The following Tentative Eligible Lists are being posted in accordance with Civil Service Rules 112, 212, 312 and 412. The names of candidates passing all phases of an examination are placed on the eligible list in the order of total scores; candidates who have tied scores are listed in alphabetical order.
The tentative eligible list is posted for public inspection for a period of time, as determined by the Civil Service Rules. During the period of public posting, members of the public–including the candidates who participated in the examination–may submit a protest. Protests must be filed in the Office of the Department of Human Resources during the inspection period. For additional information on matters that may be protested, please refer to the applicable Civil Service Rule cited above.
The Human Resources Director will review and resolve all timely protests filed during this posting period. The decision of the Human Resources Director is final.
Tentative Eligible Lists are also posted in the Employment Center Lobby
located at One South Van Ness, 4th Floor.
The following classification actions are being posted in accordance with Civil Service Rules 109, 209 and 309. As provided under San Francisco Charter Section 10.103, the Human Resources Director has the duty and authority to establish a system of job classification and to allocate each position to a job class. This includes the authority to make changes to the Classification Plan, including creating new classifications; abolishing, or consolidating classifications; or amending classification specifications as necessary.
Proposed classification actions are posted for seven calendar days. The proposed actions become effective on the eighth calendar day following the posting date unless a protest is submitted to the Human Resources Director prior to the end of the posting period.
The Human Resources Director will review and resolve all timely protests filed during this period. The decision of the Human Resources Director is appealable to the Civil Service Commission. Refer to the Civil Service Rules for more information on filing appeals of the Human Resources Director's determinations.
Exception to the Order of Layoff
When a City department determines that a position requires special skills or qualifications not identified in the classification specification (e.g., the ability to speak a foreign language or specific number of years of experience in a specialty area), the department may request that the Human Resources Director place a “special condition(s)” on the position. The Department of Human Resources will review each request and then post the final & approved special condition(s). These special conditions are also known as “Exceptions to the Order of Layoff” in Civil Service Commission Rules 121.7, 221.7, 321.7, and 421.7
Exceptions to the Order of Layoff play a significant role when determining the order of layoff. In certain circumstances, the department may not lay off a more junior employee because that employee’s position requires certain identified special skills or experience. In those circumstances, the department may lay off a more senior employee because that more senior employee either does not possess or is not able to meet the required special skills or experience identified for the more junior employee’s position.
Personal Service Contracts (PSCs):
The following requests for Personal Services Contract (PSC) authority are being posted in accordance with Civil Service Commission policy. The Civil Service Commission reviews and approves departments' request for personal services contracting authorization. The Civil Service Commission will determine whether the needed services could and/or should be provided by a Civil Service employee rather than a contractor. PSCs include agreements for services paid by the City and County of San Francisco with individuals, companies, corporations, nonprofit organizations, and other public agencies.
The Department of Human Resources posts all departments' requests for PSC authorization in excess of $50,000 for seven calendar days. An appeal of a posted PSC must be submitted to the Civil Service Commission's offices by noon of the seventh day of posting; timely appeals will be considered by the Civil Service Commission at its next regularly scheduled meeting. PCSs that are not appealed within the seven-day posting period will be placed on the Civil Service Commission's meeting agenda (Ratification Agenda) for approval.
