Extension of jurisdiction.
Any or all of the three forms of jurisdiction of the Department may be
extended to the positions not initially covered by this Act under a
department, board, commission, institution, or other independent agency in
the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of State government, or to a
major administrative division, service, or office thereof by the following
(1) The officer or officers legally charged with control over the
appointments to positions in a department, board, commission, institution,
or other independent agency in the executive, legislative, or judicial
branch of State government, or to a major administrative division, service,
or office thereof, may request in writing to the Governor the extension of
any or all of the three forms of jurisdiction of the Department to such
named group of positions.
(2) The Governor, if he concurs with the request, may forward the
request to the Director of Central Management Services.
(3) The Director shall survey the practicability of the requested
extension of the jurisdiction or jurisdictions of the Department, approve
or disapprove same, and notify the Civil Service Commission of his
decision. If he should approve the request he shall submit rules to
accomplish such extension to the Civil Service Commission.
(4) Such an extension of jurisdiction of the Department of Central Management
be terminated by the same process of amendment to the rules at any time
after four years from its original effective date.
(5) Employees in positions to which jurisdiction B is extended pursuant
to this section shall be continued in their respective positions provided
that they pass a qualifying examination prescribed by the Director within 6
months after such jurisdiction is extended to such positions, and provided
they satisfactorily complete their respective probationary periods. Such
qualifying examinations shall be of the same kind as those required for
entrance examinations for comparable positions. Appointments of such
employees shall be without regard to eligible lists and without regard to
the provisions of this Code requiring the appointment of the person
standing among the three highest on the appropriate eligible list to fill a
vacancy or from the highest category ranking group if the list is by
rankings instead of numerical ratings. Nothing herein shall preclude the
reclassification or reallocation as provided by this Act of any position
held by any such incumbent.
