A Crediting Plan is an objective statement of the position qualification requirements and criteria against which employees are evaluated.
The crediting plan is developed as a result of a job analysis during which the knowledge, skills and abilities are identified.
The crediting plan may apply to a group of positions or to one position. It states the requirements for basic eligibility in the candidate screening process, for evaluations based on applicable ranking factors, and for final relative ranking. The crediting plan contains, at a minimum, the following:
- (1) The position(s) covered
- (2) Minimum qualification standards (for basic eligibility)
- (3) Other job-related selective placement factors
- (4) Applicable ranking factors
