Outdated Programs to be Phased Out; High-Performing Programs to Receive Additional Resources & Redeployed Staff
JERSEY CITY â€“Â Mayor Steven M. FulopÂ today announced that his administration has started aÂ desk auditÂ of all civilian management and supervisory employees.Â A desk audit hasnâ€™t been conducted in Jersey City in nearly ten years.
The purpose of the desk audit â€“ which will be conducted division by division, department by department â€“ is to evaluate employee functions and accomplishments over the last year, as well as program performance and the need for redeployment of staff to better serve the residents.Â Â Additionally, the audit serves to eliminate any duplication of services.
â€œThe taxpayers deserve to have every dollar they pay to the city work for them and redundant services eliminated,â€ saidÂ Mayor Fulop.Â Â â€œWe want to make every employee and every office accountable and working to its fullest potential for the residents and business owners.Â Â To do that, we need to understand the human resources we have in place and maximize staff utilization.â€
Mayor Fulop expects to complete the internal review over the next several weeks and begin restructuring programs and departments based on the findings.
