The mission of the Administrative Division is to provide quality support services that are responsive to the agency’s needs, goals, and objectives, and accountable to the public concern. Much of the Division provides the necessary services common to most state agencies, including fiscal and accounting, personnel and training, computer information systems, purchasing, fleet management, and delivery. In addition, the Administrative Division also provides services specifically mandated by O.R.C. §120, including: collecting reimbursement from the counties for legal services provided by the Ohio Public Defender; processing reimbursement to the counties for indigent defense programs; producing educational seminars and conferences; and maintaining the office’s library. John D. Alge supervises this division.
The Administrative Division consists of five departments: Fiscal, Human Capital Management, Legal Resource Center, Computer Information Systems, and Office Services.
