Definition

This is responsible professional and technical work in the development and maintenance of statewide telecommunications systems.

An employee in this class is responsible for the detailed technical analysis and design of statewide voice and data telecommunications systems. Work includes identifying performance measures and operating methods. A position in this class may be distinguished from a position of Telecommunications Analyst II by the requirement for higher technical expertise and the responsibility for development and design of complex voice and data telecommunications systems. A similar position of comparable complexity within a state user-agency with widely dispersed facilities may be allocated to this class. Supervision may be exercised over lower ranking technical and/or clerical employees. Only general supervision is received from an administrative superior, and work is reviewed for adherence to established standards.

Job Duties

Designs and implements the reconfiguration of telecommunication hardware, software or circuitry.

Provides consultative assistance to user-agencies, and develops detailed specifications for telecommunications equipment.

Participates in technical and economic evaluations of responses to requests for bid proposals.
