This is the advanced journey level classification in the Information Technology Specialist classification series. Positions in this classification perform technical assignments of significant complexity and serve as technical experts within their area of assignment. This class is distinguished from the classification of Information Technology Specialist because incumbents in the Information Technology Specialist Senior class provide direct supervision or lead direction to assigned Information Technology Specialist, technical, or clerical staff and/or serve as technical experts within their area of assignment in the strategic planning of technology for several complex systems.
This class is distinguished from the Information Technology Analyst series in that the latter describes positions with professional/analytical responsibilities where the primary duties include the analysis of business and/or system needs, the evaluation of current systems, and the design of technical solutions to meet the identified business or system needs, including work which may emphasize business systems analysis and the design of technology solutions to resolve application problems or improve efficiency and effectiveness; network/telecommunication systems analysis, design and administration; system analysis, administration and design; and/or database analysis, administration and design.
