1822 Administrative Analyst

Recruitment #PBT-1822-101637

Introduction

Clerically Amended 11/18/2019

Amended 11/26/2019: Filing deadline has been extended to reflect the expanded certification rule and will close on Friday, December 6, 2019 at 5:00 PM. Applicants who already applied to this recruitment (PBT-1822-101637) do not need to reapply.

Who We Are

The Office of the Assessor-Recorder is responsible for carrying out property tax-related functions governed by the State Constitution and State and local laws. Our core responsibilities include locating all taxable property in the City and County of San Francisco, identifying ownership, establishing a taxable value, and applying all legal exemptions. Property broadly includes both real property and personal property owned by businesses. The Office of the Assessor-Recorder is also responsible for recording documents and maintaining those public records. Over 400 different types of documents are recorded annually, including deeds of trust, reconveyances, liens, and public marriage licenses. The Office is also responsible for collecting any transfer tax due upon a change in property ownership. The Office of the Assessor-Recorder strives to conduct our work with the core principals of professionalism and integrity.

What We Do

Heightened activity in the real estate and business markets means increased demand for the work of our office. Every year, property tax revenue remains the largest single source of funding for the City’s General Fund revenue, representing over $2 Billion in Fiscal Year 2018-19. This revenue funds crucial services like public safety, education, neighborhood improvements, and health and family support services. Through the dedicated work of the Assessor-Recorder staff, the City has experienced a 32% increase in the local assessment roll in just the past three years.  This past year, this represented a cumulative value of over $282 Billion and generating over $3 billion dollars in local revenues. This is due in part to strong growth in the real estate market, additional construction across San Francisco, and our office’s efforts in increasing efficiency. In recent years, we have taken significant steps toward modernizing our operations, including kicking off a multi-organization effort aimed at modernizing City-wide Property Assessment & Taxation Systems (Project SMART). Project SMART (System for Managing Assessments, Records and Transactions) is a multi-year project to replace our legacy property assessment system that manages the City’s $282 billion in assessed property value. The new system will handle all aspects of assessment functions and will be able to integrate with other City systems, specifically the Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector and the City Controller's Office.

Selection Procedures

Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (Weight: Qualifying):  

Candidates will be prompted to complete a Supplemental Questionnaire consisting of a Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire and a Scored Essay Questionnaire as part of the online employment application. The Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire is designed to obtain specific information regarding an applicant's experience in relation to the Minimum Qualifications for this position. Applicants must also complete the official application. It is essential that applicants provide complete information in identifying their education, experience and training. The Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate if the applicant possesses the required minimum qualifications.  

Scored Essay Questionnaire (Weight: 30%):

Candidates will be prompted to complete a Scored Essay Questionnaire immediately following the Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire that must be submitted during the online application process.  Applicants will be required to complete the Scored Essay Questionnaire by the deadline. The Scored Essay Questionnaire is designed to measure knowledge, skills and/or abilities in job-related areas which may include but not be limited to:  ability to evaluate/analyze information/data and to exercise good judgment relative to that evaluation or analysis; knowledge of and ability to use project management frameworks; knowledge of advanced Excel functions and graphics/reporting functionality and tools, including but not limited to: Vlookup, If, SumIfs, and CountIfs functions, PivotTables, charts, graphs, and tables; ability to communicate effectively orally and through presentations; ability to communicate written information (includes ability to proofread); knowledge of, and the ability to apply principles, practices and procedures involving office operations; knowledge of, and ability to apply financial/fiscal principles (including the ability to use mathematical and statistical formulas); knowledge of correct English usage, including grammar, spelling, and punctuation; ability to interpret laws, regulations, and requirements; ability to comprehend and understand written information.

Written Core Examination (Weight: 70%):

Candidates will be invited to participate in a written, multiple-choice examination, designed to measure their relative knowledge, skills and abilities in job-related areas. The “core” multiple-choice examination component may include but not be limited to:   Ability to evaluate/analyze information/data and to exercise good judgment relative to that evaluation or analysis; Ability to communicate written information (includes ability to proofread); Knowledge of, and ability to apply, financial/fiscal principles (including the ability to use mathematical and statistical formulas); Ability to comprehend and understand written information; Ability to use various computer software programs; Ability to conduct research; Ability to establish and maintain cooperative and effective working relationships; Knowledge of, and the ability to apply, principles, practices and procedures involving office operations.

This is a standardized examination and, therefore, test questions and test answers are not available for public inspection or review.   You will receive one or more scores with respect to the multiple-choice exam component. One will correspond to the core test component and, should any specialty subtests be added to that component, you may receive one or more additional “specialty” scores. Any scores attained on these components will be valid and 'banked' for three years, starting from the date of the examination. This means that, during this three-year time period, you will not be required to take any test components for which you have already attained a score. This core test is also used for 1820 Junior Administrative Analyst, 1822 Administrative Analyst and 1823 Senior Administrative Analyst therefore your test scores may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments.

This is not the same exam that is used for 1824 Principal Administrative Analyst, as such your scores on this exam are not applied to any 1824 recruitments, and your scores from the 1824 exam cannot be applied to this recruitment. If the selection process for the future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes any of these components [i.e., core exam or specialty subtest(s)], your score(s) for the corresponding test component(s) will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score(s) to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test component(s). Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which the test component (core or specialty subtest) is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.

Only those candidates achieving a passing score on both the Core Written examination and the Scored Essay Questionnaire will have their names placed on the resulting eligible list.

Eligible List/Score Report:

A confidential eligible list of applicant names that have passed the civil service examination process will be created, and used for certification purposes only. An examination score report will be established, so applicants can view the ranks, final scores and number of eligible candidates. Applicant information, including names of applicants on the eligible list, shall not be made public unless required by law. However, an eligible list shall be made available for public inspection, upon request, once the eligible list is exhausted or expired and referrals resolved. The eligible list/score report resulting from this civil service examination process is subject to change after adoption (e.g., as a result of appeals), as directed by the Human Resources Director or the Civil Service Commission.  

The duration of the eligible list resulting from this examination process will be 6 months, and may be extended with the approval of the Human Resources Director.  

Upon approval of the Human Resource Director (see Civil Service Rule 111A.26.5), the eligible list/score report resulting from this announcement may be used by other departments that also use this classification or a similar classification. To find other Departments which use this classification, please see https://sfdhr.org/sites/default/files/documents/Forms-Documents/Position-Count-by-Job-Codes.pdf.

Certification:

Conviction History

As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

  • Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
  • Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
