Justice Management Division

DOJ Building and Flag


The Justice Management Division (JMD) is responsible for management and administrative support to the Department of Justice. We strive to make sure that the infrastructure is in place so that all other components of the Department can complete the more visible Departmental work.  Under the direction of the Assistant Attorney General for Administration (AAG/A), JMD provides Department-wide policy guidance to the Department's offices, boards, divisions and, to a limited extent, its bureaus.

JMD History and Functions

In 1973 Attorney General Elliot Richardson proposed to strengthen the Justice Department’s staff capability in the areas of management and finance by establishing the Office of Management and Finance. In 1979 Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti eliminated the Office of Management and Finance and created the Justice Management Division (JMD).

We provide senior management officials with advice relating to basic Department policy for budget and financial management, personnel management and training, procurement, ethics, equal employment opportunity, information processing, telecommunications, security, and all matters pertaining to organization, management, and administration.

The Division has four key areas of responsibility:

  • Fiscal responsibility 
  • Human resources management 
  • Information resources and management
  • Policy, management and procurement
