HR Administrative Support


The mission of HR Administrative Support is to provide technical support for agency human resources functions, which will result in the enhancement of employee services provided to agency employees. When we excel in providing support to the various human resources program areas and human resources staff, our efforts will be reflected in the quality of the services they provide to the agency’s employees.

HR Administrative Support consists of four operations:

Policy Development and Legislative Review

Program Compliance and Support Operations

Regional Human Resources Coordination

Special Projects

Policy Development and Legislative Review

This department is responsible for developing, managing, and publishing agency human resources policies and procedures. This includes clarifying policies and procedures to the extent possible, to promote understanding of statutory and agency requirements, and to allow ease of implementation. The policies are periodically revised to reflect changes in legislation and agency operations. Proposed revisions and new policies are sent out to directors, managers, and human resources staff to obtain comments or suggestions. During each legislative session, this department is responsible for reviewing and analyzing proposed legislation that has the potential to impact the Human Resources Division. This department also coordinates the development of various legislatively required publications relating to the recruitment and retention of agency employees and workforce planning. The department also provides technical writing assistance in the development of various agency documents and communications

Program Compliance and Support Operations

The staff of this department evaluates and monitors compliance of human resources functions throughout the agency with human resources policies and procedures. The functions of this department include monitoring and implementing budgetary and fiscal functions to maintain and utilize resources as effectively and efficiently as possible. In addition, these staff members perform Operational Reviews to provide an evaluation of how policies and procedures are being accomplished and provide feedback to agency human resources employees. This department monitors the inventory and obtains supplies, equipment, and furniture needed for the headquarters and regional human resources staff. They also provide employee services and support for all employees in human resources Headquarters.

Regional Human Resources Coordination

There are seven TDCJ human resources regions located throughout the state. Six of these correspond geographically with the Correctional Institutional Division (CID) regions. The seventh HR region includes all Parole locations and Austin administrative offices. Each HR region includes a regional HR coordinator who provides technical oversight, supervision, and coordination of all HR functions within the region. The names and addresses for the HR coordinators are provided in the table below.
