Galveston County Commissioners Court

Monday, September 11, 2017

Galveston County Commissioners Court today voted to approve an agreement with Data Management, Inc. for time and attendance software.

The item was approved following discussion regarding the agreement, which will provide time and attendance solutions for county employees.

Beverly West, with the county's Legal Department, addressed the court concerning the license agreement.

West noted that exempt employees still will not be required to “clock in or out”, unless there is an emergency or timekeeping reason to do so, but will be required to use the system to enter leave requests and have them processed, and to approve their time. Listen (12:40)
