It also gained the employment and training functions formerly undertaken by the Department of Business Technology and Communications, and responsibility for the Government Printer and Property Management from the Department of Transport and Works. In addition, the Office became responsible for implementing the Government's commitment to centralised management services to achieve greater administrative efficiency and cost savings.
