John Hartwig was initially appointed as Information Systems Director for a three-year term, from September 20, 2011 through September 20, 2014.  On September 20, 2014, the Board extended Mr. Hartwig’s contract for an additional three years.  Again, on September 20, 2017 the Board extended Mr. Hartwig’s contract for an additional three years. The recommended action extends the term of the current agreement for an additional 16 months, through January 20, 2022.

 

Discussion:

The Information Systems Director reports to the County Administrator and is responsible for providing leadership and coordination of technological efforts in most County departments.  The Director oversees four divisions; enterprise development services, innovation services & special projects, technical services and administration.  The Information Systems Department is responsible to maximize service and operational efficiencies through the implementation of technology solutions.  More recently, the Information Systems Department was instrumental during the COVID-19 pandemic by implementing increased technical support, expanded virtual meeting capabilities, and enhanced telework capabilities to ensure the County workforce could work remotely.  The Information Systems Department has a fiscal year budget of $53 million dollars and has 116.5 total staff. 

 

Following a nationwide recruitment, Mr. Hartwig was initially appointed to the position for a three-year term, from September 20, 2011 through September 20, 2014.  A First and Second Amendment extended the terms of the agreement through September 20, 2020.  The Third Amendment to the Personal Services Agreement maintains Mr. Hartwig’s salary to  the “I” Step of the salary range, which is $202,555 annually, with a term of  September 20, 2020  to  January 20, 2022, and includes all other benefits and compensation as prescribed in the County’s Salary Resolution 95-0926.
