  • Provide feedback and input on staffing issues and strategies, metrics, and data definitions
  • Share information with and solicit input from the broader state staffing and HR communities
  • Collaborate on implementation of enterprise staffing initiatives
  • Recommend a training and development strategy for agency staffing practitioners


The Staffing Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month 9–11 a.m. at OFM State Human Resources in the Raad Building.
