Position Management
Class Studies and Reallocation
Group meeting
A class study may occur when the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) questions the accuracy of a classification or a series of classifications. Classes are looked at as a whole for statewide application.
When the DAS Classification and Compensation Unit announces a classification study, each agency Human Resource (HR) section should review all agency positions for applicability to the study even when it is not a classification being revised, eliminated or added.  HR must submit to DAS the position descriptions that are requested or those that may be appropriate for the study.  Position descriptions may be no older than 12 months and must include current organization charts.
A reallocation occurs when a classification being studied results in revision, elimination or addition of a new classification. 
When a position is reallocated, the incumbent in the position may be affected.  State HR Policy 30.005.01  Effect of Position Change on Incumbents explains the effect the change will have on the incumbent for management, unrepresented and unclassified employees.   Collective Bargaining Agreements explain the effect the change will have on represented employees.
Current classification studies are located online.
For assistance, agencies should contact their assigned Classification and Compensation Analyst.
