Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On June 26, 2018 the Board of Supervisors approved the Personnel Allocation Resolution #132-2018 (File ID:18-1012, Agenda No. 6) which reflects HHSA’s personnel allocations to include the following positions; 9.55 Health Program Specialist (HPS), 0.8 Limited Term Health Program Specialist (HPS), 11.5 Health Education Coordinator (HEC).

Working directly with the Human Resources Department, HHSA has developed the attached Personnel Allocation Resolution which was approved by Human Resources on November 27, 2018 and by County Counsel on December 3, 2018. The proposed change would reduce the allocation for HPS from 9.55 to 9 and increase the HEC allocation from 11.5 to 12. The net change in personnel allocation is a reduction of .05 FTE. The need for this personnel allocation change was prompted by a shift in focus from general public hazards education and promotion of tobacco use cessation to population based intervention policy development, formal community level coalition/advisory group development, focus on integration of tobacco cessation intervention best practice development, and heightened media campaigning. Transition to a HEC classification addresses the elevated skill set necessary to accommodate this shift to the more formal approach to coalition development and coordination.

The funding model for the proposed HEC position utilizes 1991 Realignment and the Proposition 99 Tobacco Use Prevention Program (TUPP) funding allocation which is legislated and funded by taxes on cigarette sales.
