URI's Department of Human Resources
United States of America

The powers that be have decided to eliminate the position of a much needed staff member. The ramifications of such a move have the potential to seriously impair the functioning of our institution.

This decision not only affects the staff of URI/ASFCCE personally but professionally. Mr. Lewis plays a vital role in maintaining productivity at URI/ASFCCE. He is essentially a lifeline to the majority of employees in this building. On a daily basis, he is called upon for assistance with a myriad information technology concerns, questions, and crises.

He is currently one of two members of the IT department that work here on a full-time basis. With all the problems (viruses, software issues, etc.) that arise through our reliance upon technology, one person alone cannot be expected to bear the burden of such things alone. In this day and age, productivity depends on technology.

The reality of a modern workplace is that operations come to a grinding to a halt when access to technology is somehow unavailable. The repercussions of eliminating Mr. Lewis as a full-time employee are sure to be felt by not only those on the Providence campus, but the entire URI community.

We respectfully request that the decision to eliminate the position currently held by Alan Lewis in the IT department at URI/ASFCCE be reversed.
