April 13, 2023

PIERRE, S.D.–Governor Kristi Noem is combining two more state government agencies.

The Bureau of Administration and the Bureau of Human Resources will merge into one entity. Noem says this “will streamline government processes for state employees and reduce bureaucratic overhead, making us more responsible with taxpayer dollars.”

Bureau of Administration Commissioner Scott Bollinger is retiring in June. Current Bureau of Human Resources Commissioner Darin Seeley will lead the combined organization.
