Title 2 . Administration
Chapter 7 . Public Information
Section 106. Scope of ranking

2 AAC 07.106. Scope of ranking

(a) The appointing authority shall use reasonable techniques and procedures as circumstances permit to determine the relative ranking of qualified applicants. An applicant may be required to pass each part of the assessment in order to be considered for appointment. Any preference for certain veterans, disabled veterans, former prisoners of war, or active members of the Alaska National Guard, as provided in AS 39.25.159 , must be included in the selection process.

(b) Qualified applicants domiciled in this state or who otherwise claim residency in this state for employment purposes must be given a preference in consideration above persons who are not domiciled in this state or are not eligible to claim residency for employment purposes. Residency for employment purposes must be based on the applicant

(1) being domiciled in this state;

(2) presently serving in the military with the intent of being domiciled in this state upon completion of military service; or

(3) providing documentation of graduation from an accredited high school or post-secondary institution in this state, or of a general equivalency diploma earned while domiciled in this state.

(c) In applicant pools in which both residents and non-residents of the state compete for selection, the appointing authority will give a preference in ranking to applicants eligible to claim residency in this state by

(1) utilizing a point scoring system to provide for relative ranking in (a) of this section; and

(2) increasing the score of an applicant eligible to claim residency by 10 percent of the available score; this preference cannot be combined with any other preferential point scoring system; if two preferences apply, the applicant will be given the single preference, which provides for the greatest benefit to the applicant.

(d) If the director determines that the economy and efficiency of the state service would be enhanced, the appointing authority shall rerank the applicants and accord priority among persons domiciled in this state to those who reside in the locale, district, and region of this state where the vacancy exists. This method must also be used to give a preference under AS 39.25.196 to local residents in the filling of nonpermanent positions and the filling of seasonal positions of 180 calendar days or less.
