Executive Order 17-07 - Review of facility use
Governor Brown's Executive Order 17-07, "Immediate Cost Savings Measures in Oregon's Executive Branch," put forth a series of measures intended to reduce expenditures in hopes of easing the impact of the current budget deficit.
DAS Real Estate Services is tasked with implementing this measure and collecting meaningful data on current space usage statewide. This information will be used to inform more efficient utilization and the operational efficiency of a building over its useful life.
DAS quickly recognized that inconsistent definitions and methods would make collecting useful data difficult so DAS RES prepared a set of surveys, spreadsheets, and instructions to help reduce the administrative burden on agency customers.
These tools were vetted through facility managers at the departments of Transportation, Corrections, and Forestry and revised for clarity and to ensure that a wide range of facility types are accommodated.
Tools for data collection
Due date for agency responses
Email completed documents to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2017. Agencies can expect to receive a follow up call from DAS RES after September 1, 2017 to review data submitted and identify any items that may need additional attention.
Once all data is gathered and analyzed, DAS RES will begin working with agencies on strategies to optimize their use of space going forward.
