The purpose of delegation of classification authority is to enhance the personnel management authority of supervisors by providing maximum control over the positions in their organizations.
Commanders/directors must delegate classification authority in writing. Delegation letters must identify each supervisor by title and specify the classification statutory and regulatory responsibilities. Supervisors must be trained and oriented in all position classification legal and regulatory responsibilities prior to delegation of authority.
NOTE: Separate DCA training, as established by the Intelligence Personnel Management Office, is required prior to delegating authority to supervisiors and managers who will be responsible for classifying DCIPS positions.
NOTE: Delegated Classification Authority is a tool for managers to exercise in order to expedite the classification process. It is not the intent of the DCA policy to make managers "classifiers". A manager with DCA may request assistance from the CPOC classification specialist at any time.
