DISCUSSION:
NMC recommends adding the following new classifications with the Memorandum of
Understanding established for Information Technology Services at NMC:
   Classification Title:                           Class Code:           Monthly Salary:

                                                                             For Revised
   Add              Classification                                 Class Code Total of
   2.00             Hospital Network & Systems Engineer             41K01        2.00

   4.00             Hospital Software Analyst III                   16C62        4.00

The October 16, 2007 Memorandum of Understanding between Natividad Medical Center and
the Monterey County Information Technology Department (ITD) directs NMC to add five (5)
new positions using job titles and class specifications not existing within the ITD. These new
positions are to report to the Hospital Chief Information Officer. These positions were to be
created in order for NMC to recruit incumbents who possess the knowledge and skills required to
perform successfully in these critical positions within the Information Technology Division of
the hospital. NMC worked with the Monterey County Human Resources Division to create the
five above-listed classifications, with consult from the Monterey County Information
Technology Department. NMC and Monterey County Human Resources Division attempted to
meet with SEIU-Local 521 to discuss this action; however, a representative from SEIU-Local521
did not attend the scheduled meeting.

OTHER AGENCY INVOLVEMENT:
The above recommendations have been reviewed by the Monterey County Human Resources
and Budget Divisions. The CAO Budget & Analysis Division has not evaluated the fiscal
implications of this recommendation.

FINANCING:
This action has no impact on the NMC Budget for FY 2008-09, as the funds for these pending
classifications were included in the regular budget as “to be determined” pending the creation of
the new classifications. This action will not require any additional General Fund subsidy.
