DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
At the July 13, 2021 Board meeting, the Board directed staff to amend the Personnel Allocation Resolution to include 1) an ARPA Ombudsman position and 2) an appropriately classified ARPA administrative support position.

After an analysis of department operations and future staffing needs, staff recommends that the Board approve the addition of 1.00 FTE Sr. Administrative Analyst to act as an ARPA Ombudsman and 1.00 FTE Administrative Analyst Supervisor to oversee the complex reporting and distribution requirements for ARPA funding.

The Sr. Administrative Analyst position was selected with approval from Human Resources due to the complexity and level of independent discretion needed to operate as a County ombudsman. This position was modeled after the ombudsman in Planning and Building.

The Administrative Analyst Supervisor was selected with approval from Human Resources due to the increase in workload needed to complete the complex reporting requirements from the Department of the Treasury. The Supervisor will oversee the reporting and expenditure tracking required by the Treasury.
