Division of Administrative Services
The business and financial affairs of the Office of the Public Defender
are handled by the Division of Administrative Services. Personnel
matters also are overseen by the Division.
The Division also collects the fees owed to the Office of the
Public Defender by its clients. In those cases where clients do
not pay the fees that are due, the Division is responsible for pursing
liens against them.
Also overseen by the Division are: Management Information Services
(MIS), which operates the statewide Office of the Public Defender
computer system; and the General Services section, which includes
the mail operations and distribution of supplies.
