From 2010:

The County of Los Angeles does not currently have a specific job classification for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analysts, specialists or managers. It is important to the departments that use GIS to have a series of classifications for specific GIS postions from which to draw from.

It has been determined through discussions of the eGIS Steering Committee that this is a very important initiative that needs to be moved forward.Here is a summary of a few important items from a previous meeting:

  1. There is definite desire to move forward, and it is feasible to do so.
  2. We would like to create countywide GIS items to enhance recruitment and retention
  3. There are two different competencies: Analyst/Technician and Programmer
  4. We need to have a series starting at GIS Clerk (Technician) and moving to GIS Manager (GIO).
