2. Project Management – This position is accountable for the special projects undertaken by the Sheriff’s Office, including the bidding of project work, identification of appropriate vendors, and then the oversight of the work being done by vendors through completion of the project. Decisions on vendor choices are collaborative with the Chief Deputy or County IT Director.

3. Database Management – The incumbent is responsible for development of a plan on server and database usage that anticipates problems and the impact of any downtime so that appropriate upgrades can be made in a timely manner.
