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