[Archived] Question # 22: What is the cost and listing of current vacant positions that have been vacant for over 12 months?


What is the cost and listing of current vacant positions that have been vacant for over 12 months? (Councilman Chapman)


OMB generated a report to identify all City positions, regardless of funding source, that were vacant for 12 months or longer and reviewed permanent position vacancies as of February 26, 2020 for all City departments. Positions with the “State Employee” personnel status were excluded from the review since the City does not control that state hiring process. Departments with identified vacant positions of 12 months or longer were provided the vacancy data and asked to provide information on the current status of the positions. Base on the departmental responses, the current status of the vacant positions has been broadly categorized into the following:

A total of 74 positions with a total FTE count of 64.92 have been identified. The tables below present all identified vacancies by the reported vacancy status. The tables include information on each position’s FY 2021 budgeted FTE level, employee group, total budgeted compensation including salaries and benefits, and funding source.
