Fiscal Policy Study Group
Kelly Tshibaka, Commissioner of Administration
Friday, December 6th
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union
500 W 36th Avenue
We will have two topics of discussion this Friday. From 11:30am to noon, we will discuss a draft CWN summary regarding the State’s current moratorium on new projects participating in Alaska’s State Debt Reimbursement Program and school construction funding. We anticipate it being a topic of discussion at next week’s luncheon with legislators.
Then, at noon, we will host Kelly Tshibaka, Commissioner of the Department of Administration. The department oversees much of the internal operations of state government—from accounting to risk management to IT—plus programs that serve Alaskans, such as the Public Defender Agency and Division of Motor Vehicles. She is leading the department’s work to ensure that services are effective and delivered with efficiency; pursuing innovations and cost savings; and achieving results.
A focus on program effectiveness and delivery of results has been a priority in past CWN Study Group reports on the state budget. The Commissioner will brief the study group on the department’s work on these and other accountability measures.
