The Human Capital Management (HCM) division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) administers the Merit System of Personnel Administration and acts in both a service and regulatory capacity. HCM is headed by the Administrator.
The Merit System
Agencies, positions, and employees that are subject to the Merit System are classified. Procedures for the appointment of personnel to Merit System positions, the conditions of employment, and procedures for removal are governed by the Oklahoma Personnel Act and the Merit Rules of Personnel Administration.
Non-Merit System Agencies
Agencies that are not subject to the Merit System are called "non-Merit System” agencies or “unclassified” agencies, and positions and employees in those agencies are "unclassified". The Oklahoma Personnel Act and the Merit Rules contain provisions that apply to both classified and unclassified employees, e.g., provisions relating to leave and certain employee rights, such as freedom of expression and the prohibitions against discrimination and retaliation.
