To ensure that the right people are in the r​ight place at the right time in support of the mission o​f the Government of the U.S. Virgin Islands.


The mandate o​f the Division of Personnel is stated in the Virgin Islands Code Title 3, Chapter 25, Section 451 through 667, and the Personnel Rules and Regulations Sub Chapter 472, Section 91 through 103. This mandate requires that the Division of Personnel serves the public and government agencies by continually improving the quality of its service, effectively and efficiently performing in a manner justifying the highest degree of public confidence in its conduct; maintain the appropriate roster of employees in government service as it relates to the various programs under the Division of Personnel’s prescribed policies, rules and regulations and conduct inquiries as needed for the proper administration of the Virgin Islands Code Title 3, Chapter 25.

The Division of Personnel has two locations throughout the Territory: (1) Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and (2) Christiansted, St. Croix. The Division is comprised of seven units: the Director’s Office, Assistant Director’s Office, Recruitment and Classification, Employee Development, NOPA Administration, Human Resources Information System (HRIS Unit), and the Group Health Insurance Office.


The Division of Personnel envisions its emergence as a department that fully manages and facilitates the growth and development of the Government of the Virgin Islands` greatest resource—its employees via a human resources methodology based on merit.
