DHRM is now part of Dept of Gov Ops

On July 1, 2021, the Division of Human Resource Management become part of the Utah Department of Government Operations. This change is a result of the Utah Legislature passing S.B. 181, legislation combining the Department of Administrative Services with the Department of Technology Services and the Division of Human Resource Management.  Jenney Rees serves as the Executive Director of the Department of Government Operations.

John Barrand remains the director of Division of Human Resource Management. This change does not affect the way you work with the DHRM.
