Project Management - Services
 
New construction, major renovations or improvements to building structures and systems are part of the Department's Capital Improvement and Capital Construction budget requests.  Our Project Managers direct construction of new facilities and remodeling of existing ones for state agencies.  We assist agencies in obtaining project management services through outside consultants.  This mix of in-house and qualified private sector contract services yield the best results for our customers. 

DAS Project Managers ensure that the design and construction of each project meets the quality requirements set by the State and other involved agencies.  We regularly compare our costs and performance against private and public sector benchmarks to assure the highest quality service.  The Project Management Institute certifies project managers on our staff.
 
 
Project Planning
 
Project planning is the first step in the facility development process.  We define the project goals, evaluate the resources needed and develop an action plan to coordinate all the elements for a successful project. 
 
The project plan is a coordinated effort of many people from different organizations.  This approach results in better project decisions and ownership of the project by all involved.  Each project plan clearly assigns responsibilities to the state of Oregon as owner, to design professionals, to contractors and subcontractors.
 
The project planning process creates consistent and coherent documents for major projects that will:
  • Guide project development and execution
  • Establish initial project goals
  • Document project planning assumptions and constraints
  • Document the process for project planning decisions including priorities, alternatives and changes
  • Establish the project stakeholders and decision makers
  • Facilitate communication amongst stakeholders
  • Define key reviews as to content, extent and timing
  • Provide a baseline for progress measurement and project control
 
Remodeling and Other Projects in DAS Buildings
State agency tenants of DAS owned buildings request remodeling and other projects through the Project Authorization Process.  This review and approval process ensures that construction standards and finishes match existing conditions, and meet current regulatory requirements.  Forward your requests to DAS on a Project Authorization form (pdf).
 
The Project Authorization Committee meets every Wednesday morning.  Please have your request and any supporting documentation to the committee no later then close of business the prior Friday to be reviewed at the next meeting.
