Subsection 7. Demonstration Projects or Pilot/Study Programs
Status New 7/16/2008

Section 250.140(e) of the Illinois Administrative Code (Code) (80 Ill. Adm. Code §250.140(e)) provides specific guidelines for the Merit Board to approve demonstration projects or pilot/study programs on a limited basis in order to investigate, research and gather information on new human resource processes. These demonstration projects or pilot/study programs will serve as prototypes or trial versions of new human resource procedures appropriate for our civil service system in order to evaluate their applicability, efficiency, and usefulness in the public higher education arena. Data and evaluation information collected from these programs will assist the Merit Board in evaluating the overall effectiveness of those programs and provide direction for future formal rulemaking activities. Any interested party can submit a demonstration project or pilot/study program proposal in accordance with the guidelines found in section 7.2 of the Employment and Separation Procedures Manual.
