UNM administrators reviewing 26 positions

University of New Mexico administrators are reviewing 26 positions as part of an effort to consolidate departments across the school.

The university’s regents voted earlier this year to restructure oversight of the Health Sciences Center, which critics characterized as a “power grab.”

As part of that process, UNM President Bob Frank ordered a review of several departments, which means an external review of 26 employees. Twenty-one of those employees received a six-month contract instead of a year-long contract. The remaining five do not have a contract, but are under review.

“Please note that changes in your current reporting structure, title, duties, salary and contract duration may be affected based on recommendations from our consultants and will be conveyed to you,” wrote Dorothy Anderson, the vice president of human resources, in letters to those affected.

“As soon as possible after the evaluation is completed, you will be notified of any changes that may occur to your contract effective January 1, 2017. Any new contract will be issued to you then, if appropriate.”

And HR staff said the goal isn’t to eliminate positions, but rather to “improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the University.”

The people who received a six-month contract are:

Dianne Anderson, director of university communication

Duane Arruti, director of applications in Information Technologies

Cinnamon Blair, chief marketing and communications officer

Ryan Cangiolosi, chief strategic adviser, HSC Office of Strategy and Engagement

Andrew Cullen, associate vice president of planning, Budget and Analysis

Robert Fondino, chief budget and facilities officer, HSC budget office

Stuart Freedman, chief HSC compliance officer

Moira Gerety, director of project management, Information Technologies

Gilbert Gonzales, chief information officer

Rosa Gonzalez-Rosenblatt, director of sponsored projects

Vanessa Hawker, chief strategic adviser, HSC budget office

Ava Lovell, senior executive officer for finance and adminstration

Argy Maniatis, director of university marketing

Tammy Jo Martinez, director of customer services, Information Technologies

Keith Mellor, executive project director, Credit Collections and Merchant Services

Steven Perry, director of networks, Information Technologies

Brian Pietrewicz, director of computing platforms, Information Technologies

Julian Sandoval, chief financial services officer

Michael Schwantes, chief financial services officer, HSC contract and grant accounting

William Sparks, executive director, HSC communications and marketing

Adam Weeks, executive project director

The people who are not on contract but are under review:

Nicole Abeyta-Elzy, strategic planner, HSC office of strategy and engagement

Hannah Farrington, strategic planner, School of Law

Mary Jacintha, strategic planner, Health Systems

Kevin Stevenson, strategic planner, President’s Office
