I, Tony Knowles, Governor of the State of Alaska, under the authority of art. 111, Sec. 1 and 23 of the Alaska Constitution, hereby amend my Administrative Order No. 177.
To do the Administration’s utmost to ensure essential state government functions continue without disruption, I declared Year 2000 compliance to be a priority of the highest level for the executive branch. On August 28, 1998, I signed Administrative Order No.177 creating the Year 2000 project office in the Office of the Governor.
To further this Administration’s consolidation and reorganization efforts, I hereby amend Administrative Order No. 177 to establish the Y2K project office in the Department of Administration. In recognition of the Year 2000 compliance priority, the Commissioner of Administration will also function as the Y2K senior project manager. For the same reason, the Y2K project office, which has worked closely with state agencies in compiling inventories and assessments of their automated systems, will report directly to the Commissioner of Administration.
This order takes effect immediately.
Dated this 6th day of January, 1999.
By: S/S Tony Knowles
