Administrative Tests and Measurement Specialist Notice of Exam (Qualified Incumbent Exam No. 2224)

Administrative Staff Analyst

  • There is an active list from Exam 5011. It was extended for one year and will now expire on 9/28/21. DCAS is not planning to extend the list again, due to the new Administrative Staff Analyst lists being ready for establishing. DCAS is up to approximately list number 2200. If you have a list number between 1 and 2200, please call Executive Director Sheila Gorsky at the union office to discuss your particular situation.

  • Pending lists for Open Competitive and Promotional Admin SA are near completion and are scheduled to be established upon the expiration of List 5011 on 9/28/21.

    Associate Staff Analyst

Personnel informed us in early August that it was extending that list a bit further before establishing the new Associate Staff Analyst lists from the 2019 exams. Because they can only extend the life of the list in one year increments, the official end date of the old list is now 8/10/22, but they anticipate the list expiring sooner than that. If you are on the old ASA list and are called to a hiring pool, please call Executive Director Sheila Gorsky at the union office 212-686-1229 to discuss your particular situation.

  • As of September 15, 2021, DCAS established the list for Promotional Associate Staff Analyst from Exam #9537. You can see the lists organized by score within agency at this link:

Because they can only extend the life of the list in one year increments, the official end date of the old list is now 8/10/22, but they anticipate ending the list sooner than that. If you remain on the old ASA list and are called to a hiring pool, please call Sheila Gorsky at the union office at 212-686-1229 to discuss you particular situation.

    Training Materials

    For the time being, we are leaving the training materials on this page from the most recent Analyst Series Exam Training Course. When we next conduct a training class for these exams, this section will be updated.

  • List of Training Materials

    The OSA Study Guide that follows includes many practice tests, as well as the "Reference Booklets" given out at some of the previous exams.

    The remainder of the Study Guide on this page is divided into the training topics of Management and Supervision, Personnel, Operations Research, Statistics, Budget and Contracts, Communication and Grammar, Math, Training and Test Taking Techniques, Employee Counseling and Conflict Resolution, and In-Basket Orientation.

    Please note that much of this information has been used in previous training classes and, as a result, may have page numbers on some of the articles. Please disregard the fact that the numbering may not be sequential and you may appear to be missing some pages. Some materials were no longer relevant and we have not included them.

    Most topics begin with a section for the curriculum and/or Powerpoint presentations the trainers will be using in the classroom, followed by questions and then individual articles.

    THERE IS A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE HERE. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BRING ALL OF IT TO EACH OF THE TRAINING SESSIONS, JUST THE POWERPOINT SLIDES OR CURRICULUM FOR EACH CLASS. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT A PARTICULAR CLASS TOPIC, YOU MAY WANT TO BRING SOME OF THE MATERIALS FOR THAT SESSION TO THE CLASS.

    Training Schedule

    The schedule of classes you can download at the link below outlines the topics and the days and times that the training will take place.We recently revised the order of the classes, so be sure the copy you print out says "Revised Version 6-24-19" on the bottom of each page.

  • Schedule of Classes

    The evening weeknight training sessions take place once a week (on the same day each week) Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from July 1, 2019 through August 23, 2019 for the Associate Staff Analyst training and from July 1, 2019 through September 6, 2019 for the Administrative Staff Analyst training from 6pm to 9pm with registration starting at 5:30pm.

    The Saturday and Sunday weekend training will be conducted from July 6th and 7th through July 27th and 28th for the ASA training and from July 6th and 7th through August 3rd and 4th for Admin Staff Analyst training. The weekend sessions begin at 8:30am for registration and run from 9am to 4pm. There will be a one hour lunch break from 12 noon to 1pm. Two topics will be covered each weekend day.

    There are several restaurants in the area or you can bring your own lunch.

    You will be assigned a seat when you arrive for the first training class session. Please go to the same place each week. The desks are arranged in groups. The members of your group are your "training buddies." You should attempt to keep in contact with each other by sharing your telephone numbers, in case you need assistance or plan to study together.

    Please be sure to bring your original training class registration form with you to your class sessions. It will serve as your "admission ticket."

    Some Tips and Rules For the Open Competitive Admin, ASA and SA Lists

    Candidates may be called to pools at multiple agencies, since these are citywide open competitive lists which will be given to every agency that has a provisional Administrative, Associate or Staff Analyst, not simply the agency you are presently serving in (assuming you are a City employee already).

    Your list number is very important. Agencies cannot simply appoint whomever they want, whenever they want. They must, by law, proceed in number order while making appointments.

    Some words about the "One-In-Three Rule." An agency does not have to appoint every successful candidate. When the agency "considers" candidates whose list numbers are #1, 2 and 3 for the first job, the agency can select the best of the "one-in-three."

    If the agency gives that first appointment to the candidate whose list number is list #1, numbers 2 and 3 are marked "CNS" or considered but not selected. If a second job is available, list #s 2, 3, and 4 must be considered. If #2 is chosen, #3 has been considered but not selected twice and #4, once.

    When a third position is offered, #3, 4 and 5 are considered, but if the job goes to candidate #4, candidate #3 has been considered but not selected three times. His or her name is removed from the list for any future consideration. The agency can (but does not have to) grant a candidate's written request for later restoration to the list. On the other hand, you remain eligible to be called from the list at all other City agencies.

    If you are presently a City employee, you need to ask your agency if they have received the certified Administrative or Associate Staff Analyst list from DCAS, if they will reach your number, and whether you will be appointed.

    If you receive a notice from another agency inviting you to a hiring pool, you need to tell your agency immediately. If they choose to, they will give you a "DP-72" form to take to the hiring pool at the other agency. The other agency will appoint you for your agency. Agencies help each other in this way all the time, but your agency must approve the appointment by providing the "DP-72" form. Give the form to the personnel at the hiring pool when you arrive. If they reach your number, they will give you papers to return to your agency.

    You can read more about DP-72 forms by downloading the memo from Michael Schady at this link:

    Appointment to a permanent civil service title via a DP 72 Form

    If you are called to a pool by your agency or another agency, never decline a job offer. Let them decline you. If you decline a job, you will be removed from the list for every agency and you will have to write to DCAS to restore you. They can only restore you to the list three times. If the agency declines you, you remain on the overall list, but will not be called by that particular agency again. You may, however, write to Human Resources at that agency and ask to be restored to the list for that particular agency.

    If you are invited and do not go to a pool or call and tell them you will not be coming, either in your agency or another agency, you will be considered an "FTR" or Failure to Report. You will be taken off the list for every agency and will be forced to write DCAS for restoration to the list - which can only be done three times.

    Sometimes, you will have no choice but to FTR at an agency, because agencies sometimes call the list on the same date and at the same time. You will be forced in those cases to choose which pool to attend. If you are appointed at the pool you do attend, you don't need to do anything. If you are declined by the agency whose pool you attended, the FTR in the other agency you did not attend will mean you are removed from the list and you will need to write to DCAS for restoration to the list.

    If you are in another higher provisional title (other than Associate Staff Analyst or Staff Analyst - depending on which list you are on), you will remain in your current position at your current salary and become a probationary Associate Staff Analyst (on leave) or probationary Staff Analyst (on leave). After your year's probation as an ASA or SA, you will become a permanent Associate Staff Analyst (on leave) or Staff Analyst (on leave). You will be, what is called "turned over."

    OSA normally seeks to monitor the "calling of the list." If you receive a notice calling you to a pool, contact OSA Executive Director Sheila Gorsky at (212) 686-1229. Occasionally, candidates know about a hiring pool before the union does.

    If you are not currently an OSA member, we look forward to welcoming you into the union. And, if you are not currently a member of OSA, please call the union office at (212) 686-1229 and let us know how to communicate with you so that we can provide assistance as the list is moved.
