Assistant Managing Director – Office of Crime Victims Advocacy (WMS 2)

At the Department of Commerce we strive to be creative, collaborative, and trusted. We identify opportunities to deliver critical funding and services to strengthen communities and aim to promote equity in all aspects of our work. We believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential to our success, and we work to foster an environment where all individuals are valued and respected. We cultivate an environment in which we continuously learn, and we own our work.
We invite all candidates to join us in our mission to create a diverse and equitable workplace that reflects the richness of the communities we serve. Together, we can build a brighter and more inclusive future.

The Community Services Division (CSD) partners with local governments, tribes, community action agencies, community based organizations and nonprofits to provide community assistance and services to promote individual and family self-sufficiency and reduce poverty; address the causes and effects of crime and interpersonal violence; and
increase equity and belonging for underserved and historically marginalized communities by centering the voices of lived experience.

The Office of Crime Victims Advocacy (OCVA) is a unit within Community Services Division (CSD). OCVA has four major statutory functions: advocating on behalf of crime victims in obtaining needed services and resources; administering grant funds to community agencies working with crime victims; assisting communities in planning and implementing services for crime victims; and advising local and state government agencies of practices, policies, and priorities, which impact crime victims.

The Assistant Managing Director (AMD) is responsible for program policy and operations of OCVA, including daily management and strategic planning. OCVA administers around $50 million in state and federal funding each state fiscal year, for approximately 30 different grant programs. OCVA works with local governments, Tribes, and non-profit agencies to provide services, advocacy, and engage in prevention efforts across the state. These grant programs are a valuable resource for the statewide service networks, and the Assistant Managing Director (AMD) is responsible for working with the key partners in each area – this includes OCVA staff, Commerce staff, and external partners.
Operations includes tasks such as data management (service and activity data, budget information), creating and managing centralized processes and procedures (this can include things like application design, grant and contracting templates, etc.), leading efforts necessary to implement special conditions of the funding we manage (federal awards, budget provisos, and legislative studies/reports), and leading change management efforts for OCVA (these can be initiated by us or by external factors such as an audit).
The Assistant Managing Director is a member of OCVA’s leadership team, and will be regularly collaborating with the Managing Director and Section Managers on the current work of the office and the path to the future.
