From that eligible list, the director or designee of the agency with the vacancy shall appoint an individual who ranks in the top ten names on the eligible list or the top twenty-five per cent of the eligible list, whichever is greater. In the event that ten or fewer names are on the eligible list, the director of the agency or that director's designee may select any of the listed candidates.

The director of the agency that created the eligible list or that director's designee, may consolidate two or more eligible lists of the same classification by ranking the eligible candidates named therein, according to their scores.
