[IPAC-List] Civil Service apart from HR

If I understand you correctly, New York State functions in that manner. State agencies have their own HR offices. NYS has a separate Department of Civil Service that provides oversight to those agencies/HR offices, which includes providing examinations.

I am not sure how the local governments work, but I believe they combine the two functions. Legally, the local governments (counties, cities, etc.) can have their own civil service commissions. The State provides many of them with examination services.

Subject: [IPAC-List] Civil Service apart from HR

I am looking for a list of jurisdictions that have Civil Service Departments that are separated from Human Resources. The City of Dallas as operated this way for decades and there is now a movement to combine Civil Service under HR. This is a bad idea for several reasons, but I am looking for other jurisdictions that function in a similar manner to give our director some information to give to the city council. Any help is greatly appreciated.
