AN ACT to direct the president of the state civil service commission  to
  study  and  report  upon how the use of a career portfolio application
  process would impact diversity, recruitment and hiring  of  minorities
  in the public sector

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The president of the state civil service  commission  shall
cause a study to be performed to analyze how the use of a career portfo-
lio  application process, rather than an exam-only process, would impact
diversity, recruitment and hiring of minorities in  the  public  sector.
Such  study  shall consider the account portfolio application process in
other states or in other countries and it shall examine how such process
impacts minority recruitment and hiring. A career portfolio  application
shall  be defined as a visual representation of a job candidate's abili-
ties, skills, capabilities, knowledge,  qualities,  experiences,  accom-
plishments,  education, interests, professional goals and objectives and
it represents a candidate's work potential. Such career portfolio appli-
cation is a collection of tangible materials that represent work-related
events and accomplishments in a candidate's life.
  § 2. On or before two hundred seventy days after the effective date of
this act, the president of the  state  civil  service  commission  shall
complete  the  study  conducted  pursuant to section one of this act and
shall thereafter deliver a copy of the findings of  the  study  and  any
legislative  recommendations  he  or  she  deems  to be necessary to the
governor, the temporary president of the senate and the speaker  of  the
assembly.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

hereby directed to conduct a study on the current civil service examina-

sector.    Such study shall review the various needs of applicants based
on age, race, creed, color, national  origin,  native  language,  sexual
orientation,  gender  identity or expression, sex, disability or marital

prevent a diverse public sector workforce. Such resources shall include,
