The state's job classification and compensation system is designed to assist in management activities and facilitate a number of human resource management goals including recruitment, selection, performance management and salary administration. The classification system is a tool for organizing the work and identifying the knowledge and skills needed to accomplish the diverse missions of state organizations.
In accordance with O.C. G.A. 45-20-1, it is the responsibility of the Department of Administrative Services to establish and maintain the state's job classification and compensation structure and, in consultation with agencies, establish state-wide criteria for the implementation of associated rules and policies.
