Administration and Support

Blue sky caps green of trees surrounding the capital city’s buildings.The Administrative Services Division (ASD) manages the executive functions of the agency through the Director's Office, provides external communications, maintains the department's computer infrastructure, administers human resource functions, manages the agency's budget, oversees facilities and maintenance, and provides business-related support to agency programs and customers.

The DLCD workforce strives to represent the diversity of the communities we serve by fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture for employees, the public, and the local governments we serve. Our vision for diversity exists across the breadth (functions) and depth (hierarchy) of government.

The DLCD DEI Committee works to integrate best practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion into agency policies and programs. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee serves as an advisory body to the DLCD Management and Policy Teams. The Committee provides research, recommendations, event support, and policy guidance to DLCD leadership as requested and as outlined in their annual work plan.

State agency budgets cover one biennium, or two fiscal years. A biennium runs from July 1 of an odd numbered year to June 30 of the next odd numbered year. (For example, July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2019.) The budget development process has three major phases:

  • Agency Request Budget
  • Governor's Budget
  • Legislatively Adopted Budget​​​​

Agency Request Budget

Agencies begin to develop their agency request budget (ARB) early in even-numbered years. In the ARB, agencies describe their core mission, objectives, and program priorities, along with budget information on past, current, and future biennia. The ARB reflects the agency’s policy agenda and the financial plan it would like the Governor to recommend to the legislature.

Governor's Budget

The Governor and the Chief Financial Office (CFO) review agency request and analyst recommended budgets to compile the Governor’s Budget. This budget reflects the Governor’s priorities and the policies set forth in statute, as well as any changes proposed by the Governor. This document is provided to the Legislature by December 1st of even-numbered years.

Legislatively Adopted Budget

The Governor's Budget is presented to the Legislature during the legislative session in odd-numbered years. Committees, typically the Joint Committee on Ways and Means or one of its sub committees, review each agency’s program and budget information. These committees hold public hearings to allow for input from all concerned stakeholders. Upon the conclusion of the legislative session, final agency budgets are adopted, thereby creating the Legislatively Adopted Budget (LAB).

Budget Documents

State agencies in Oregon develop and monitor performance measures to assess progress in delivering products and services to Oregonians. DLCD has 12 key Performance Measures (KPM):

  1. Employment Land Supply
  2. Housing Land Supply
  3. Public Facilities Plans
  4. Certified Industrial Sites
  5. Transit Supportive Land Use
  6. Transportation Facilities
  7. Farm Land
  8. Forest Land
  9. Urban Growth Boundary Expansion
  10. Grant Awards
  11. Customer Service
  12. Best Practices

DLCD is required by state statute (ORS 291.110) to submit to the legislature on the approved key performance measures and the progress the agency has made toward accomplishing these performance goals. The report is presented to the legislature as part of the budget process that occurs each biennium. The most recent DLCD Annual Performance Progress Report is provided below. Previous years are​ available upon request.

DLCD is required by state Statute (ORS 197.060) to submit to the legislature a biennial report prior to the end of each even-numbered year. Example: December 31, 2016. The statute mandates the report to describe the activities and accomplishments of the department, Land Conservation and Development Commission, state agencies, local governments and special districts in carrying out ORS chapters 195, 196, and 197. The most recent DLCD biennial reports are provided below:
