Department of Labor Consolidates Divisions
Consolidation will reduce costs and improve services
ANCHORAGE: The Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOLWD) is
consolidating two divisions in order to reduce costs and improve services. Following
Governor Walker’s issuance of A.O. 275, Labor Commissioner Heidi Drygas is moving
forward with consolidation.
“We are reducing administrative overhead and enhancing investments in workforce
development and training,” said Commissioner Drygas.
A.O. 275 consolidates the Division of Business Partnerships and the Employment Security
Division into the Division of Employment and Training Services. The consolidation
eliminates duplicative administrative functions, saving an estimated $600,000 annually.
The Employment and Training Services Division includes front line staff at Job Centers who
connect job seekers with employment. Employment and Training Services staff also
connect Alaskans with training opportunities. The division manages workforce investment
grants, and aims to expand the percentage of funding being invested as grants while reducing
the percentage of funding spent on administration.
