A new job analysis should be conducted if: • A job analysis does not already exist. • The position you seek to fill is a new or unique position unlike any other existing position in your agency. • The nature of the position requirements change with relative frequency (e.g., information technology positions). A new job analysis is not required each time you fill a job if: • The position is similar to others in your agency for which a valid job analysis exists. • The requirements for the position have not changed since the last time a job analysis was completed for the position. If the requirements for the position are relatively static, then the job analysis may only need to be reviewed and confirmed as valid.
