STATE

The Merit System Board recorded the recommended changes in the State Classification Plan, copies of which are attached hereto and made a part hereof.

SUBJECT: Change in the State Classification Plan


GENERAL TITLE

William Paterson University has requested the addition of a new work year for the title of Scheduler, to staff a position in the student center, working 10 months per year. This proposed variant on the existing 12 month title is requested as a result of the recent growth of the campus; the scheduling of many classrooms, conferences, and meeting rooms has increased to a point which warrants the creation of another position. The University believes the use of a Scheduler 10 month would allow proper coverage, since the majority of activities take place during the academic year.

Negotiations representatives have been notified and support the establishment of this title.

SUBJECT: Change in the State Classification Plan


DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AFFAIRS

The Department of Community Affairs (DCA) seeks to create the title Supervisor of Fire Safety Inspections.

In March 2005, DCA's administrative code was amended to require various licenses for all levels of multiple dwelling inspectors, effective July 01, 2004. The restructuring involved the renaming of levels in the Inspector Multiple Dwelling series. The base title changed from Supervisor Code Inspections (S27-32202) to Inspector 1, Multiple Dwelling (R27-32202). The variant title (Supervisor of Code Inspections, Fire Safety) was not included in the restructuring because it was not impacted by the license requirements of the base titles. This restructuring, in effect, severed the variant title from the base; the variant title should have been renamed at that time.

Currently there are three incumbents serving in the variant title. The differences between the titles Inspector 1, Multiple Dwelling and Supervisor of Code Inspections, Fire Safety are such that they should no longer be associated. A separate title is requested. The Supervisor of Code Inspections, Fire Safety
(S27-32202C) title will be inactivated upon approval of this request.

Negotiations representatives have been notified and support the establishment of this title.

TITLE CREATION
Effective: 10/16/2004
