OPI Organizational Chart

The OPI offers flexibility in employee choice through remote telework available positions for Montana residents or those looking to move to the Big Sky State. Currently, we have approximately a third of our staff teleworking throughout Montana. The OPI has led the charge in revolutionizing government employment. These changes allowed the OPI to reduce our fiscal footprint by moving from four office buildings to two. This action will permit more budgeting resources to serve our schools and students in both general fund and federal tax dollars.
