SUBJECT:

Change in the State Classification Plan

DEPARTMENT OF BANKING AND INSURANCE

The Department of Banking and Insurance requests an upward salary re-evaluation for the Market Conduct Examiner series. The Department contends that the complexity of this function has increased since the unit was initially established, as a result of a merger of two distinct units, and the increased complexity of the types of examinations conducted. Specifically, there is a change in statistical knowledge required.

The Department agrees to amend the education requirement to include specific credits related to this field. The addition of specific credits impacts the Hay evaluation. The Department seeks a one-range salary increase.
