4. Impact to the project(s) if not position is not filled.
a. Software release support and application troubleshooting support. This work would have to be shifted to other team members without a backfill, impacting the timeliness of response
5. Assessment of whether the workload of this individual can be redistribution amongst remaining team members.
a. The workload of the (2) remaining senior engineers is beyond capacity, and a lack of resources supporting application support and troubleshooting will make redistribution a challenge.
6. Impact to schedule/workload if position is not filled.
a. Due to the complexity of this environment the workload of our senior engineers is disproportionately heavier than that of less experienced engineers. Many of the problems we encounter require institutional knowledge, and/or years of systems operations and software release experience to solve. Not having a junior engineer will increase workload on the senior and will negatively impact the bureau. Unplanned outages will take longer to resolve, and the quality of support OAB will be able to offer to existing and future projects suffer.
