Name of creator
The Department of Administration was established in October of 1971 with the amalgamation of the Department of Treasury (excepting the functions concerning estimates and forecasts) with the general administrative functions of the Department of the Territorial Secretary and the administrative functions of the Department of Personnel. The Department of Administration provided support services to other government departments in the areas of finance, personnel, supply, transportation, communications and data processing. In addition, it managed the Consolidated Revenue Fund, collected all Territorial revenues and performed related treasury activities. A reorganization of the government in 1975 resulted in the responsibilities of the Department of Administration being divided between several other departments including the Department of Personnel and the Department of Finance.
