DTS Golf Tournament

We are considering planning a DTS Golf Tournament this Fall.  If you are interested in participating, please let us know by completing this form by May 1. 

The tournament will be held in September.  This is not a State-sponsored event.  State employees will need to attend the event using their own time (Annual Leave), and will not be allowed to count the event as Work time.  All participants must pay their own entry fees.

Great Shake Out April 16th

On April 16, 2015, we have a chance to put our emergency planning into motion by participating in the Great Utah ShakeOut.(http://shakeout.org/utah).

The ShakeOut, which happens at 10:15 a.m., is a chance for all state employees to practice the correct earthquake actions of drop, cover and hold on. This important endeavor requires that we lead by example. This is a great time to exercise our continuity plans, to test evacuation procedures, and to have frank discussions about resuming the people's business, or any other critical tasks with which we may be faced. We owe it to the public and to ourselves to be as ready as we can be. And we can't be ready if we don't practice, thereby leaving our employees unprepared and the public at risk.

Utah Digital Government Summit is May 21

The Utah Digital Government Summit is May 21, 2015.  Details regarding the Summit and registration can be viewed here http://www.govtech.com/events/Utah-Digital-Government-Summit.html . Please get proper approval from your supervisor if you would like to attend.

Customer Service

Employee Kudos

“I appreciate Arlene McCulloch. I had a training session this afternoon that I am ashamed to say I had not properly prepared for and left a couple of things to the last minute. In doing that I found myself unable to complete a couple of crucial tasks. I contacted Arlene who immediately set about assisting me with my tragedy. In just a few minutes she had me back on task and my training went off without a hitch. I have had many experiences like this with Arlene, never with my back against the wall like today, but she is always ready, willing and able to assist with issues in Safety. I sometimes wonder what I would do without her. She is an asset to your team.”

- Ami Windham, Labor Commission

 

“Scott Wunderlich is an awesome employee. For years, he has always given DFCM and myself fantastic, quick and full service for our computers, etc.”

- Alan Bachman, Office of the Attorney General

“I so appreciate Rod Peterson’s hard work on my computer this last week! The entire IT department were very helpful, quick to respond and kept me updated on the progress to fix my computer! I didn't get the name of who took my initial call but if you have a record of that please note to his supervisor as well that he was funny, friendly and very understanding. Rod was great to stay in contact with me, he kept me informed of the problems and tried to solve them quickly so I didn't lose a bunch of work time! Calls and emails were responded to very quickly! I'm very happy with the process and technician!!”

- Jill Tooker, DCFS


“I just want to let you know what a great experience I had with Martin Gonzalez. He was great! I was having problems getting into the Commissioners email. He totally solved that today, remotely. It was fabulous.”

- Kathleen D. Mathews, Utah Department of Agriculture and Food
