Series Concept

Computer Resource Specialists provide a wide range of technical and consultative services related to the acquisition, use, and maintenance of computer and/or network software and hardware and the development of computer applications. Computer Resource Specialists provide consulting services requiring knowledge of new enhancements, developments, and diagnostic tools in personal computer software.

Incumbents typically install and maintain hardware and software systems; utilize and manipulate computer software to create formats, screens, menus and reports; analyze existing systems; analyze problems to effect computer-oriented solutions; confer with users; recommend hardware/software acquisitions; and provide training in computer usage.

The series consists of two levels based on varying degrees of responsibility; the size, nature, and/or complexity of the computing environment; and the level of technical and programming skill required for computer applications.

This series is not intended for positions that use computers as a tool (e.g., for data analysis, data retrieval, report writing). Such positions should be classified according to their primary functional responsibility.
