The Department of Human Services is expected to please everyone. Secretary Kathryn Campbell opened up this week on the consolidated department’s four-year service delivery reform project, the culture challenge of competing tribes, and dealing with technology on a massive scale.
June 30 marked the end of a consolidation and service delivery reform process the Department of Human Services began in 2011, and secretary Kathryn Campbell thought it was time to say a few words.
