Department of Administrative Services

The Human Resource Policy section develops and implements workforce development and management strategies for Oregon state government; works closely with other DAS divisions and state agencies to implement new or to revise existing state human resource policies and Oregon Administrative Rules, while implementing “best practice” in human resource management; conducts special studies and research on highly complex policy, program, and human resource management issues and makes recommendations to the Governor’s Office and the Chief Operating Officer; and provides consulting services and technical assistance to state agency human resource offices.
