This Week at Rules – August 4, 2021

Brody Mangum This Week at Rules

Front Page Focus

This week, we’re looking at eRules, the recently updated host for the Utah Administrative Code, as well as our Codification Segue and subscription service.

Utah Administrative Code Updates

As of July 1, 2021, the Department of Administrative Services (DAS), the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM), and the Department of Technology Services (DTS) have merged to form the Department of Government Operations (GovOps). Services provided by any of these departments or the divisions under them have not been affected.

The Utah Administrative Code has slightly changed to reflect this transition. The Administrative Services, Human Resource Management, and Technology Services agencies have been consolidated into a single Government Operations agency.

The following titles are under Government Operations:

  • Government Operations – Administration (13)
  • Administrative Rules (Office of) (15)
  • Archives and Records Service (17)
  • Debt Collection (21)
  • Facilities Construction and Management (23)
  • Finance (25)
  • Fleet Operations (27)
  • Inspector General of Medicaid Services (Office of) (30)
  • Purchasing and General Services (33)
  • Records Committee (35)
  • Records Management Committee (36)
  • Risk Management (37)
  • Human Resource Management (477)
  • Technology Services (895)

This transition has not had an impact on the effectiveness of codified rules. For questions regarding specific rules, please contact the agency behind that rule. For general rule questions, including information on the Administrative Code, contact our office. To learn more about the new Department of Government Operations, visit the official GovOps website.

Codification Segue Updates

The Codification Segue has also received a few updates. The changes to the Utah Administrative Code listed above have also affected the Segue, with the following titles being changed:

  • R13. Administrative Services. Administration > R13. Government Operations. Administration
  • R21. Administrative Services. Debt Collection > R21. Government Operations. Debt Collection
  • R25. Administrative Services. Finance > R25. Government Operations. Finance
  • R27. Administrative Services. Fleet Operations > R27. Government Operations. Fleet Operations
  • R33. Administrative Services. Purchasing and General Services > R33. Government Operations. Purchasing and General Services
  • R477. Human Resource Management. Administration > R477. Government Operations. Human Resource Management
  • R895. Technology Services. Administration > R895. Government Operations. Technology Services

Certain rules hosted on the Segue have also been removed due to them being fixed and accessible through eRules. If you’ve noticed a rule missing from the segue that was previously there, please search for that rule at adminrules.utah.gov. If the rule is either missing or incorrect on both the Segue and eRules, please contact us at rulesonline@utah.gov.
