Office of the Premier

The Office of the Premier is coordinated by a Chief of Staff who oversees the staff required for the running of the office. The Office of the Premier is comprised of the Deputy Chief of Staff, the Director of Communications, the Director of Scheduling, and the Southern Alberta Office of the Premier.

The Deputy Chief of Staff is responsible for the daily operations of the Premier's office including human resource management and financial operations. It participates in the coordination and monitoring of the government's legislative agenda and acts as a liaison between the Standing Policy Committees, caucus, Cabinet and the Office of the Premier. The Director of Communications is responsible for coordinating the Premier's media requests and the information disseminated to the media by Members of the Executive Council (that is, Ministers), and for providing communications advice to the Premier and Members of the Executive Council. The Director of Scheduling coordinates the Premier's schedule and briefings.

The Southern Alberta Office of the Premier, called McDougall Centre, is located in Calgary and provides administrative support to the Premier and Members of the Executive Council for meetings and events which occur in the Calgary office. It also acts as a liaison with Ministers' offices and their departments in order to respond to queries from southern Alberta.
