How private owners and realtors lease to the state


Phase 1 - Planning

Phase 2 - Searching for space

Phase 3 - Negotiating

Phase 4 - Preparing lease agreements

Leasing agents find space in both DAS-owned facilities and privately owned facilities. 

DAS-owned buildings have two rent models: uniform rent and self-support rent. ​


​If you are a tenant in a DAS-owned building

If you currently lease space in a privately-owned building 

 In certain cases, both forms may be required. ​​

Energy conservation in leased space

Oregon has some of the most aggressive sustainability requirements in the country and agencies are expected to exercise wise stewardship of Oregon's environmental resources. The Oregon Sustainability Board was created in 2001 by the Oregon Sustainability Act. Since its inception, the Board worked with state agencies to create sustainability plans and encouraged innovation among communities. The Board re-instituted the Interagency Sustainability Coordinators Network comprised of representatives from the top 25 key agencies to implement and monitor internal agency operations for conservation efforts. More information about sustainability efforts in state agencies is available on the Office of Sustainability website.  

Water reduction in leased space  

On July 27, 2016, Governor Brown issued Executive Order 15-09​  directing state agencies to reduce water consumption by 15 percent or more across all state-owned facilities on or before December 31, 2020.

As the state explores avenues to conserve water in its own assets, we kindly ask tenants in state-owned buildings to look for ways to reduce non-essential water consumption wherever practicable.

Interior project managers support the leasing agents and their client agencies in developing floor plans and workspace details, which describe the built-out leased space. They frequently work with the building owner's architect, especially on larger projects. Real Estate Services' interior project managers produce drawings, which are used as lease exhibits, but not as construction bid documents. Interior project managers also monitor progress of tenant improvement construction on behalf of client agency. They look for compliance with applicable state specifications.
