Office of Legislative Counsel Seeks Deputy Director

The duties of this Career Executive Assignment role include oversight of the state Legislative Data Center, according to the job posting.

The California Office of Legislative Counsel (OLC) is recruiting for a deputy director (Career Executive Assignment) to oversee the Legislative Data Center (LDC) and the Chamber and Committee Division.

The OLC’s mission is to assist the Legislature, the governor and other state officers by providing nonpartisan legal services supporting the legislative process.

“Beginning in the 1970s, at the request of the Legislature, the OLC began to implement computer capabilities to support the process of drafting and printing legislation,” the OLC’s website notes. “Since then, the office has delivered an array of technology services to improve the efficiency of additional business processes and expand public access to legislative information.”

The deputy director reports to the chief deputy director of the Customer Services Branch and manages a team of more than 10 IT managers and specialists across multiple sections. The incumbent is a member of the LDC’s executive team and participates in the formulation of its goals, policies and long-range plans. The deputy director also “establishes policies relative to activities of the Chamber and Committee Division,” according to the job posting. “The deputy director acts as a high-level adviser to the Legislative Counsel, LDC chief deputy directors and other LDC managers and staff on using IT in the legislative process. “In addition, the deputy director plans and coordinates their agendas in order to ensure that requirements for new or enhanced legislative systems are clearly identified and fully reviewed.”

In addition, the deputy director coordinates demonstrations of the LDC’s IT products for legislators, legislative counsel, ranking dignitaries from other public offices, executive branch agencies’ representatives, legislative staff from other states, local government agencies’ representatives and delegations from other countries, the posting says.
