CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 06



Meeting Date: September 11, 2001

Subject/Title: Amendment of Council Policy No. 10-8, Employee Computer Purchase Program, eliminating the requirement that employees may only borrow once every three years. 

Submitted by: Pamela Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION
Amendment of Council Policy No. 10-8, Employee Computer Purchase Program, eliminating the requirement that employees may only borrow once every three years.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On December 14, 1999, Council approved Policy 10-8, Employee Computer Purchase Program. The goal of the program is to improve productivity by encouraging employees to purchase and use home computers by providing them with a financial incentive to do so.

BACKGROUND:
The purpose of the amendment to the Employee Computer Purchase Program is to allow employees to stay up to date with current technology, while benefiting the City both in terms of establishing employee credit reliability and providing greater opportunity for others to participate. Many computer-related purchases become obsolete in a very short time span. The goal of the computer purchase program is the “effective use of technology” and “to accomplish this, it is critical that employees be well-trained in its use.” Mandating a three-year time span between upgrades in technology runs contrary to the expressed goal of the employee computer purchase program.

With this amendment Employees will now be able to borrow up to $3,000 in a three-year period.
