We draw each sample approximately 7-10 days after the sample period had ended. Where the BC Public Service Agency is involved in coordinating the collection of documentation, we send them a list of the relevant appointments. At this point they can also identify appointments that are out of scope.
For each sample, we send a request for the competition files to the responsible deputy minister. Requesting and receiving the competition files from the responsible organizations takes about a month for each sample. It takes our auditors about two months to audit the assigned appointments from each sample. This time normally includes some back and forth with hiring managers, who may be busy or on leaves.
