Information technology careers at state agencies cover a broad range of jobs. Of those jobs, more employees are classified in the Systems Analyst
job classification series than any other in the Information Technology occupational category. Employees properly classified within that series
typically perform a variety of duties, including analyzing information technology system requirements, automating manual processes, improving
existing systems, and implementing designs using software-programming languages.
This audit focuses on employees classified in the Systems Analyst job classification series at health and human services agencies
(Article II of the General Appropriations Act, 87th Legislature). In fiscal year 2021, state agencies collectively employed 1,718 systems
analysts, making it the most populated job classification series within the Information Technology occupational category. Of those 1,718 systems
analysts, 840 (48.9 percent) were employed within Article II agencies.
