Topic: 

A Resolution to Authorize the Reclassification of the Network Analyst III Position to a Network Supervisor Position

Topic Description:

The Personnel Committee has endorsed the reclassification of the Network Analyst III position to a Network Supervisor Position.   

The current Network Analyst III position has been performing the duties of a Network Supervisor.  IT’s use of outside consultants for network support has reduced significantly since hiring the incumbent.  For example, when IT implemented VoIP for the Sheriff’s Office (prior to hiring the current Network Analyst III), $30,000 was expended for professional services as the department did not have the technical expertise to complete this project. When implementing the same system at the AJC Building, IT’s expenditure for professional services was less than $1,000.   

The current Network Analyst III has assumed a lead role, working at a supervisor level and providing project management, successfully completing several system implementations.

The network system is critical to all County operations.  Accordingly, for maintenance, backup, upgrades, and other systemic network requirements, the existence of more than one Network Administrator position is imperative.  The additional position will further reduce the County’s dependence on outside contractors to fulfill network operating requirements.
