Those nominees and applicants who request confidentiality shall have that request honored until and unless the nominee or applicant achieves “final candidate” status. Section 19.36(7)(a) and (b) Wis. Stats. defines “final candidate” as:
“ ... each applicant for a position who is seriously considered for appointment or whose name is certified for appointment and whose name is submitted for final consideration to an authority for appointment to any state (unclassified) position, ... ‘Final candidate’ includes, whenever there are at least 5 candidates for an office or position, each of the 5 candidates who are considered most qualified for the office or position by an authority, and whenever there are less than 5 candidates for an office or position, each such candidate. Whenever an appointment is to be made from a group of more than 5 candidates, ‘final candidate’ also includes each candidate in the group.”
