Internship description: The DoIT administers the City of San Diego’s IT services. This program requires the development and implementation of a citywide IT cost allocation to ensure the benefiting funds receiving the services are paying their appropriate share of the costs. The City’s currently has an IT cost allocation plan, however, the plan needs to be updated to reflect changes to the IT landscape. The City is moving from a on-site datacenter to cloud based services. This significantly effects the IT cost allocation plan. The intern will review the existing IT cost allocation plan, research best practices and propose a plan that would meet the City’s need. Intern will be responsible for documenting the City’s current IT cost allocation plan to identify the data sources available. This will include working with IT staff to document where the data is stored, understanding any modification done to the source data, and communication between DoIT and benefiting funds. The intern will then research IT cost allocation plans that are documented in IT references materials and industry publications. The intern will also work with the City’s IT consultants to understand how they assist public agencies with IT cost allocation plans. The intern position will then apply the concepts discovered in their research to the as-is process to develop a to-be process for the IT cost allocation plan. The intern will present the to-be process to the DoIT Finance Manager. Once an IT cost allocation plan is developed, the Finance Manager, with the assistance of the intern, will present the IT cost allocation plan to Department of Finance and the City’s outside auditor for approval. The learning goal for the intern is development of an IT cost allocation plan that is supported by research, industry standards, and City’s procedures
