In accordance with Section 12 of Chapter 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws, the Office of the State Auditor has performed an audit of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018. CSC’s website states,
We hear and decide appeals filed by certain state and municipal employees and candidates for positions covered by the civil service law, including: discipline, layoff, bypass, and examination appeals as well as classification appeals for all state employees.
In this performance audit, we examined certain aspects of how CSC administered its appeal process in terms of establishing time standards for the completion of appeals and the extent to which it met established timelines.
Our audit revealed no significant instances of noncompliance by CSC that must be reported under generally accepted government auditing standards.
