The Polk County property tax collection and apportionment
systems run on an IBM Mainframe. The system also supports the
Public Works Weeds application, certain functions for the Auditor's
office, and Voucher System processing for the Family Enrichment
Center, General Assistance, and Veteran's Affairs.
The mainframe system processes approximately 20,000 online
transactions per day, which includes both production business
processes and development.
Production processes occur Monday through Friday, from 5:00 to
10:00pm. An automated Job Scheduling software package is in place
to reduce staffing needs.
The Operations group is responsible for the following:
- Systems programming
- Configuration of new 3rd party packages
- Disk maintenance
- Nightly production schedule
- RAC-F Security
- Configuration of automatic job scheduler
- Distribution of print and other media
- Offsite storage
- Backups and restores
