144.05  DECIDING TIE SCORES.
   (a)   When two or more eligible applicants receive the same total score, the order in which the names of such persons shall appear on the eligible list shall be determined by their respective scores on that part of the examination assigned the greatest weight.  In the event that two or more qualifying applicants also receive identical scores on that part of the examination assigned the greatest weight, the order of listing shall be determined by a computer generated random number assigned each applicant, the lower number qualifying for priority listing on the eligible list.  Such number is to be posted at the exam for review by applicants.
   (b)   In the event two or more applicants receive the same total score on a promotional examination, seniority shall determine the order in which their names shall be placed on the eligible list.  In the event such applicants have equal seniority the placement of the eligible list shall be determined by random number as stated above.
   (c)   Subsections (a) and (b) hereof are specifically intended to supersede State Code provisions on the procedure for deciding tie scores on civil service examinations.
