About the Commission
The Michigan Civil Service Commission is a bipartisan commission consisting of four non-salaried persons appointed by the governor to serve staggered eight-year terms.
The Commission is empowered by the Michigan Constitution of 1963 (Article 11, Section 5), to:
- classify all positions in the classified service according to their respective duties and responsibilities,
- fix rates of compensation for all classes of positions,
- approve or disapprove disbursements for all personal services,
- determine by competitive examination and performance exclusively on the basis of merit, efficiency and fitness the qualifications of all candidates for positions in the classified service,
- make rules and regulations covering all personnel transactions, and
- regulate all conditions of employment in the classified service.
The administration of the commission's powers is vested in the state personnel director who is a member of the classified service and is responsible to and selected by the commission.
