REC/GOV/018. Civil Service Commission.
Record Group Term
Chapter 232 of the Public Acts of 1913 set up the Connecticut Civil Service Commission consisting of three commissioners appointed by the Governor. Legislation divided the State employment system into unclassified service exempt from the bill and classified service that required applicants to take competitive examinations in order to be placed on eligibility lists. The Commission made rules, created classified job titles and tests, administered the tests and prepared eligibility lists, answered correspondence, and sought information about exempted or unclassified employees in State departments. Chapter 26 of the Public Acts 1921 abolished the commission. This record group contains minutes of commission meetings, financial records, correspondence with the public and state departments and institutions, subject files, papers and reports of appointments made, a card file of applicants and their scores (1914), a ledger of applicants and eligible candidates for each classified job, samples of forms and examinations, and manuals issued by the Commission and by other states.
