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.
