County continues work to improve, rebuild IT department

Bartholomew County officials continue their work on rebuilding the county’s IT department. The entire department quit last year due to various grievances. Since then, county commissioners have contracted with Sharp Business Systems to keep the various county systems maintained. Carl Lienhoop, commission president, talked about the contract during Tuesday night’s meeting on the county council…

Lienhoop says that the only area of concern with Sharp, quality-wise, was the speed of work orders being processed. He says that the commissioners let company representatives know that those efforts need to be improved.

Council members agreed to a request from commissioners to move $60,000 from IT department salaries to cover three months worth of contracting expenses.
