Scott DeFruscio, Director of Staffing Services, New York State Department of Civil Service has advised that the Department has revised its examination application, NYSAPP, to allow the Department to collect the necessary information to determine if disabled veterans are eligible for additional credits for subsequent open-competitive or promotion appointments, as provided for in an amendment to Article 5, §6 to the New York Constitution.
For more information on the amendment, see GIB #13-01.
Revisions have been made in the online application as well as the PDF version of the application available for candidate use from the Department’s web site. In addition, most special applications available to candidates from the Department’s web site have also been revised. It is anticipated that all special applications will be revised and reissued by the end of July 2014.
Agencies having any announced examinations requiring the use of a special application and need more specific information concerning the status of your agency’s special examination application, are requested to contact its Staffing Services Representative.
Candidates must use the new application dated (6/14) to apply for any future examinations. The Department requests that any copies of previous versions of State applications be destroyed and that agencies request a supply of new form using the information below.
Agencies requiring a supply of paper copies of Examination Applications should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requesters should enter “Exam Application Order” in the subject line. The body of the email should include
1. The name of the person to whom the applications are to be sent;
2. The number of applications needed; and,
3. A mailing address where the applications should be sent.
The Department advises that when ordering copies of applications, agencies should allow three weeks for delivery.
