State Middle Management Could Take A Hit


There’s been a lot of talk in Salem on two bills that would streamline state government.  One would eliminate some vacant positions; the other would get rid of some middle management positions.  There was a lot of testimony in favor of House Bill 2020 Thursday in Salem. One House Bill getting a lot of support would eliminate some middle management positions by setting a new supervisor to employee ratio. Jason Conger of Bend says the current ratio of managers to workers is 5.7%; the benchmark is 11 workers to one manager. "Generally there appears to be a lot of support to put a process in place, basically, where we can look at ways to make agencies less top heavy during each budget cycle, and force them to come and report to the legislature and then work together to get this ratio of managers to workers a little flatter and a little more efficient.” Conger says it would save an estimated $50 million. Conger says in the private sector the average ratio is a range of 8 to 12 workers per one manager.
