Utah Government Operations

Effective July 1, 2021, the Department of Administrative Services, the Department of Human Resource Management, and the Department of Technology Services combined into one organization - the new Department of Government Operations. (DGO). This change is a result of the Utah Legislature passing S.B. 181.

Agency History: http://das.utah.gov/about-administrative-services/13-das-history.html

The department was organized by consolidating the Department of Finance, the Department of Systems Planning and Computing, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Building Board. When the department began operation on 1 July 1981 it consisted of seven divisions--Finance, Central Services, Data Processing, Facilities Construction and Management, Archives and Records Services, Purchasing, and Personnel Management. The State Building Board and the State Building Ownership Authority were also placed within the DAS umbrella for administrative support and staff services.

The newly organized department also assumed direct administrative responsibility for three agencies that had previously been administered by the former Department of Finance--the State Insurance Fund, the State Agency for Surplus Property, and the Risk Manager, who manages the State Risk Management Fund. The State Insurance Fund was renamed the Workers' Compensation Fund in 1986 and became the Department of Workers' Compensation Fund in 1988. The State Agency for Surplus Property became the Division of Surplus Property in 1984. The Risk Manager and the Risk Management Fund are commonly referred to as the "Office" of Risk Management and have occasionally been called the "Division" of Risk Management.

The Office of Administrative Rules, which was added to the Division of Archives in September 1984, became a subagency of the department in 1985 and was elevated to division status in 1987. Telephone Services, formerly part of Central Services, became the Division of Telecommunications in 1986. The Crime Victims' Reparations Office was created in 1986 and was transferred to the Governor's Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice on July 1, 1989. The Division of Personnel Management was separated from the department in 1988, becoming the Department of Human Resource Management. The Division of Fuel Dispensing Services was created in 1991.
