The State Civil Service Commission is granted Constitutional authority (Article X, Section 10) to ensure a uniform classification and pay plan for
the classified service. The Compensation Division endeavors to accomplish this goal through drafting job specifications with pay ranges
that are internally aligned and externally competitive. This division is also responsible for the allocation and reallocation of all
classified state jobs, and provides solutions for state agencies to assist in the recruitment and retention of a qualified workforce
through the use of flexible pay mechanisms.
