ODFW director announces departure
Director Lindsay Ball will depart ODFW to head the Oregon Department of Administrative Services
SALEM - Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Lindsay A. Ball has been appointed to head the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, the Governor's Office announced today. The appointment, which is subject to Senate confirmation, takes effect Jan. 3, 2006.
The choice of Ball to lead DAS taps a director who is well known and respected among legislators and state agency leaders as someone who stands for effective, efficient and responsive government.
"Director Ball was instrumental in bringing fiscal integrity and open budget development processes to ODFW," said Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission Chair Marla Rae. "His leadership has transformed what was an embattled agency five years ago into a department that is now held up as a model for other state agencies to follow. I have been very pleased to work with Lindsay for the last several years and to see the improvements he has implemented at ODFW."

Ball has led the department through some significant changes, noted Rae, including workforce reductions and reorganizations aimed at streamlining operations, budget cuts and changes to bring the agency's spending in line with revenues, relocation of the agency's headquarters from Portland to Salem, creation of the Oregon Hatchery Research Center, and development of the state's first Wolf Conservation and Management Plan.

The Commission will meet soon to select an interim director to lead ODFW until a permanent replacement is named. No decision has been made as to when the recruitment for a new director will begin.
