While doing a quick look at government job openings (never know when they may be hiring for a "coordinator of watching football") I noticed how proud DHS is of it's gargantuan size:
DHS is Oregon’s largest state agency, serving a diverse population of Oregonians. DHS has multiple goals and exceptionally broad staffing needs that range from epidemiologists to administrative assistants; from contract specialists to social workers; from nurses to accountants.
DHS employs approximately 9,500 people...
With the adjectives they use, "largest" and "exceptionally broad", it's almost as if they are bragging. It's a "my department is bigger than yours" kind of thing except that it has nothing to do with good management or smart bussiness and everything to do with their ability to discover increased duties and responsibilities.
How about "we are narrowly focused on helping children, the elderly and the truly needy" as a more acceptable statement.
