DCAS holds and participates in a variety of public hearings on issues and proposals that are vital to New York City government operations.

Public Hearing Regarding the Proposed Rules for Surplus Computer Equipment Donations

Pursuant to Local Law 81 of 2023, Administrative Code § 12-214, and as authorized by sections 811, 823(c) and 1043 of the New York City Charter, the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (“DCAS”) is proposing to add a new chapter 16 to Title 55 of the Rules of the City of New York, requiring DCAS to donate surplus city-owned computers to eligible organizations for beneficial use. DCAS will hold a public hearing on the proposed rules. The public hearing will take place at 10:30 am on May 16, 2024. The hearing will be held in the Auditorium at 125 Worth Street, New York, New York 10013.

Civil Service Classification Proposals

Classification Proposals are required to create titles in the exempt, non-competitive, and labor categories of Civil Service. Proposals are announced to the public via the DCAS website and are put together, with help from DCAS, by the City agency interested in hiring these kinds of employees. Once a public hearing on a given proposal is conducted, the proposal is sent to the Mayor for his approval and then sent to the NYS Civil Service Commission for its review and approval. After a proposal is approved by the Commission, the titles become part of the City’s Civil Service system.
