Financing and facilities planning

The Public Lands Advisory Committee (PLAC) is authorized in ORS 270.120 and 270.100(1)(d). The primary role of the committee is to advise the director of the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) on all real property acquisitions, exchanges or dispositions valued at $100,000 or more, for which the department must give its consent. DAS and the state agency that owns the property shall consider, but need not follow, the advice of the PLAC (OAR 125-045-0215).

The committee consists of seven members including two members from the Legislature, one licensed real estate broker, two persons who serve in the executive branch of state government, one person qualified as a land use planner, and one person qualified as a real estate management expert. There are no vacancies on the Committee.

Meetings are scheduled quarterly in Salem at the Department of Administrative Services, General Services Building located at 1225 Ferry Street SE Salem, OR 97301.



A Web-based database makes state property information accessible in real time to the Legislature, agencies and the public. The reports are available on the Department of State Lands website.
