The Division’s first obligation is to house agencies in state-owned
space. If suitable state-owned space is not available, the Division’s Leasing
Services will place the agency in leased space. The Division negotiates
all terms and conditions of leases for agencies under our authority.
When an agency determines they need new office space, additional
office space or renewal of a current lease, they are required to submit a Space
Request Form to the Leasing Services. This form contains the necessary
information and required authority needed for the Leasing Services to
begin a search for space. This form also contains space guidelines for agency
use in order to justify the space they are requesting.
At no time is an agency to enter into discussions or negotiations for lease terms and conditions with private building owners or agents.
The Administrator of the Public Works Division must enter into the
lease as Lessee on behalf of the agency as Tenant. Due to the number of leases
managed by the Division, agencies should plan ahead for space needs and allow a
minimum of three hundred sixty five (365) days from submission of the completed Space Request Form.
