The Finance Department has been fine-tuned, with better utilization of the computer and communications technology now available. The corporation utilizes a consistent budget process since the Board of Directors voted to accept the first ever balanced budget March 1997.
Between the Cordova office, Anchorage support warehouse, and the five hatcheries there are 45 regular employees. Seasonal hires average about 75 people throughout the year. PWSAC has several people return over the seasons.
