IT Classification Project

After months of reviewing feedback from subject matter experts, a focus group, HR Administrators, CIO's, the OCSEA IT subcommittee, and those who replied to the on-line open comment period, the joint labor management committee has agreed to a final product regarding the IT Classification Project. Both DAS and OCSEA have agreed to the creation of six (6) new IT classification series with 18 classification titles.

Having concluded negotiations, contract changes can be found to Articles 36.05(b), 18, and agreements were signed regarding Article 17 and a new position description agreement for the IT sector of the state workforce.
