Effective June 1, 2012, the Division of State and Local Operations within the New Jersey Civil Service Commission is now the Division of Classification and Personnel Management. The Division is the primary point of customer service contact for human resource matters for the State's Civil Service agencies. Responsibilities of the Division include responding to reclassification requests, assigning positions to appropriate titles, administering reductions in force, maintaining State and local government civil service employee personnel records, and the issuing certifications. For the past twenty‐six months, the Division, under the directorship of Kenneth Connolly, has been instrumental in executing the Title Consolidation Initiative. The initiative was undertaken by CSC Chair/CEO Robert M. Czech as part of Governor Chris Christie's mandate to streamline and reform New Jersey government at all levels. Since its inception it has consolidated or eliminated over 2,000 titles deemed obsolete or redundant.
"The new title more closely describes the services provided by the Classification and Personnel Management team, especially in the wake of the ongoing Title Consolidation Initiative," Mr. Czech said. "The work done by Ken Connolly, his staff, and the municipal and county stakeholders over the past two‐plus years has been absolutely tremendous, and has gone a long way to making the Commission more nimble and responsive to the needs of hiring authorities and employees."
The Division's office address and contact details will remain the same, and the Division's business remains unaffected by this change. Robert M.
