Governor Mead establishes Agency Teams to Enhance Coordination
CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead continues to work to improve efficiencies in state government. He announced the creation of teams made up of his agency directors focusing on communication and collaboration. The seven teams will emphasize areas important to Wyoming like energy, job creation and health care.

“The underlying question each team should answer is: how can we add value and efficiency to our services and resources,” Governor Mead said. “Our state agencies do quite well at communicating within their own agency, but I want agencies to find synergies by working with each other and deliver the best possible service to the public without redundancies.”

The Governor’s Office will be represented on each team with Governor’s staff serving as facilitators. The teams will be comprised of agency directors, but there may be work groups that come from these teams that consist of other staff from the agencies.

“The purpose of these coordinated efforts is threefold: to create a sustainable framework to advance policy initiatives; to support and coordinate individual agency activities; and identify cross-agency performance indicators,” Governor Mead said.

Governor Mead previously combined the Workforce Services and Employment agencies so those in need of job training or other employment related issues would only have to deal with a single agency.
