​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 provide an opportunity for public comment and 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 must consider, but need not follow, the advice of the PLAC (OAR 125-045-0215)​
