The role of the Support Services Section is to provide an employment process that facilitates the employment of qualified individuals in a timely manner. This section works closely with the Office of Management & Budget (OMB), Office of the Controller (OOC) - Contract Accounting and General Accounting, and all Navajo Nation Programs to maximize the utilization of the Human Resources Information System (HRIS) to facilitate the recruitment, selection and employment process of the Navajo Nation.

In addition, this section includes Position Control which reviews Personel Action Forms; enters approved budgets, budget transfers, and budget modifications; and verifies position funds to cover the remainder of the program's fiscal year. During the budget development process this section enters all Navajo Nation Program budget information into HRIS; assigns position numbers to new positions; distributes and updates Budget Form 3's for Navajo Nation General Funded Programs; and provides personnel budgeting orientations.
