ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 72
OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
December 6, 1982
Under the authority of art. III, Sec. 1 of the Alaska Constitution,
I adopt the following procedures to facilitate the uninterrupted
conduct of state business during the orderly transition between
1. Until equipment is available to apply the facsimile signature
of the Commissioner of Administration and, where applicable,
the Commissioner of Labor to checks and warrants issued by the
state, the Departments of Administration and Labor may continue
to issue checks and warrants which bear the facsimile signature
of Carole J. Burger, former Commissioner of the Department of
Administration, and of Edmund N. Orbeck, former Commissioner
of the Department of Labor. Checks and warrants issued during
this interim period which bear the facsimile signature of the
immediate predecessor in office are valid and executed in accordance
2. All delegations of authority, designations, certifications
or other orders promulgated during the preceding administration
which relate to the performance of essentially ministerial, rather
than discretionary, acts remain effective unless specifically
revoked by operation of law or by order of the appropriate department
or agency head or acting head. By way of example, a designation
of certifying officer authority or a delegation of purchasing
authority remains in effect, but a delegation of regulation adoption
authority executed pursuant to AS 44.17.010 does not.
I find the adoption of these procedures necessary for the
efficient administration of state government.
This order takes effect on December 6, 1982.
DATED at Juneau, Alaska, this 6th day of December, 1982.
S/S Bill Sheffield
Governor of the State of Alaska
