State Personnel Board Rules

​​​​The State Personnel Board is appointed by the Governor to provide policy direction for State personnel administration.  The Rules of the State Personnel Board are those policies adopted by the Board and approved by the Governor to serve as a framework for legal compliance and effective talent management across the state.  Board Rules generally apply to the Executive Branch of the State, except for the Board of Regents and State Authorities (unless an Authority is specifically covered by statute).  Other organizations, such as local departments of Public Health and Community Service Boards are covered as provided in law. 

 

The Rules have the force and effect of law for covered State organizations.  They serve to promote consistency in the implementation of core human resources practices while allowing appropriate flexibility for agencies to tailor their human resources programs for individual efficiency and effectiveness.
