RAJ JINDAL, Louisiana

The Merrill Baumgardner Award is presented annually to an individual who has demonstrated excellence in the field of automation in a state workforce agency.
...
Raj Jindal This year's distinguished recipient is Raj Jindal, Information Technology Director, Louisiana Department of Labor (LDOL). In this position, Mrs. Jindal has made major contributions in enhancing labor market information and technology services to the clients of the Department. She has been a prime mover in the development of the Department's Information Technology systems since 1977.
During her distinguished career Mrs. Jindal has led the implementation of critical multi-million dollar projects that have assisted the staff and clients of LDOL. Included in the long list of past accomplishments are the implementation of automation projects such as interactive voice response and UI self-service Internet applications for claimants and employers. She is currently providing IT direction and leadership as LDOL transforms its UI business processes from a local office approach to a call-center based operation.
Other projects include the Louisiana Virtual One-Stop, a Web based system used for workforce development, job search, and placement activities; and the development of Louisiana Occupational Information Systems (LOIS). Mrs. Jindal designed and implemented a Comprehensive Occupation Information System (COIS) which, among other features, kept an updated inventory of training providers and programs in the state employment and wage outcomes of the trainees by way of UI wage record matches and forecast of the occupations most in demand in the state. When WIA came into effect, Louisiana implemented it without problems because a number of requirements of WIA were already available in LOIS.
Immediately after hurricane Katrina, LDOL was tasked with the reality of accommodating the needs of hurricane victims. Although normal business procedures and processes including printing and mailing paper benefit payment checks were available, they would not have been effective considering the anticipated massive number of victims in need of services.Therefore, under emergency circumstances the Department had to act rapidly in developing and implementing a plan for providing UI and DUA services to several hundred thousand Louisianans who were limited in communication and correspondence capabilities.
In an effort to provide UI and DUA benefit payments to claimants quickly, Mrs. Jindal, working in conjunction with LDOL administrators, directed the IT department in the implementation of the LDOL debit card program which was implemented within 10 days after hurricane Katrina. During the disaster period over 325,000 UI and DUA claimants received benefit payments that were electronically deposited to their LDOL debit card account. his was a remarkable accomplishment compared to 129,147 average number of initial of claims filed for the previous 3 calendar years.
In responding to the disaster, under Mrs. Jindal's direction, LDOL's IT Division implemented automated Internet systems for UI and DUA continued claim filing, claimant change of address, employer inquiry, and claimant inquiry tools. LDOL was fortunate to have implemented these automated service features because a second disaster, hurricane Rita, struck Louisiana only a few weeks after hurricane Katrina, causing additional citizens to require LDOL services.
In 1997 Mrs. Jindal was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Office of Occupational Information Services for LDOL, a position held until 2004. Mrs. Jindal has served on numerous state and national committees including the Louisiana Database Commission, the Louisiana Council of Information Services Directors for which she is currently serving a second term as President, and the Information Technology Support Center Steering Committee for which she served as chairperson. Mrs. Jindal is a graduate of Louisiana State University with a master's of science in nuclear engineering and a master's of science in physics.
After nearly 30 years of Louisiana state service, Mrs. Jindal's dedication, determination and tireless effort, combined with an ability to continually gain knowledge and keep in step with technological advances is a significant reason why the Louisiana Department of Labor has been successful in its commitment to excellence and service to the citizens of Louisiana.

Asked a day after his election in October whether his mother would remain employed at the state Department of Labor, Jindal told reporters that his mother was in the process of retiring.

He noted that she began the process of retiring before the election.
The governor said at the time that his mother would play the role of full-time grandmother to his three children.
On Tuesday, Jindal said his mother had health concerns that have since improved.
"She tells me she continues to take it on a day-by-day (basis)," he said.
Jindal said there is not an ethical conflict with his mother working for the state government that he oversees.
He said she began working for the Labor Department when he was 6.
Jindal said his mother should make her own decision on whether she should retire.
State nepotism laws allow state employees to work for an immediate family member as long as the employee has been there at least a year.
Jindal's mother, Raj Jindal, is an information technology director at the Labor Department.She recently won an award for excellence in the field of automation in a state work force agency.
She is a classified employee, which means she is protected from being fired with a change in administration but is prohibited from participating in political campaigns.
