Department of Civil Service

Municipal Service Division (Follow-Up Review)

New York's civil service regulations are administered at the local level by local civil service agencies, which are overseen by the New York State Department of Civil Service Municipal Service Division. In our prior audit report 95-S-10, we examined this oversight and found that improvements were needed. For example, over a four-year period, the Division reviewed the operations of only 28 local agencies, and did not adequately follow up on past reviews to ensure that its recommendations for improvement were implemented. In our follow-up review, we found that action has been taken by Division officials to implement many of the improvements recommended by our prior audit.
