NY To Replace IT Vendors With State Workers

dcblogs writes “New York state plans to replace as many as 500 IT contract workers with a new type of temporary state worker. The state estimates it can save $25,000 annually for each contracting position that is in-sourced. This is the result of a new law creating ‘term appointments,’ which strip away some hiring and firing rules that apply to permanent state workers. These term appointment workers are employed ‘at will.’ Term appointments can be up to five years and workers get state benefits. Proponents of this change said a state IT worker might earn an average of $55 an hour, including benefits, while the state pays its contractors an average of $128 an hour for workers in similar jobs.”
