OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
June 10, 2015
I, Bill Walker, Governor of the State of Alaska, under the authority of Article III, Sections 1 and 24
of the Alaska Constitution, and in accordance with AS 44.17.020 and AS 44.17.070, order the following
reorganization within the Department of Labor and Workforce Development:
ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 275
The Division of Business Partnerships is dissolved. The Alaska Workforce Investment Board (AS 23.15.550),
is organized as an entity under the Office of the Commissioner. The Employment Security Division and remaining
functions of the Division of Business Partnerships are merged into a single division called the Division of
Employment and Training Services.
This reorganization recognizes the need for independent policy development by the Alaska Workforce Investment
Board and for workforce development services to be integrated into a single division. The Alaska Workforce
Investment Board currently aligns with the functional reporting structure in the Commissioner's Office. This
organization creates efficiency and cost savings and is in accord with sound administrative principles and practices.
This Order revokes Administrative Order No. 205 and takes effect immediately.
Dated at Anchorage, Alaska, this 10th day of June, 2015
