History[edit]

Since the establishment of the first Norwegian government, in 1814, the Prime Minister has had secretaries to help him with tasks, though these were not collectively assigned to his office until 1945. The office was given the current title in 1950, but not formally created until 1956. In 1969 the central secretariat for the entire cabinet also became part of the Office of the Prime Minister.[1]
