The Office of Financial Management’s Facility Planning Program has established the following policies to promote the efficient use of leased and owned facilities.
Facilities owned and leased by state agencies represent a significant financial investment by the citizens of Washington. To manage this investment by using state facilities to their fullest potential before acquiring new facilities whenever possible, the Office of Financial Management (OFM) is required to establish and maintain a process for the approval of new space.
To understand and manage the significant financial investment made by the citizens of Washington in state-owned and leased facilities used by state agencies, RCW 43.82.150 requires OFM to develop and maintain an inventory system of all facilities owned and leased by state government.
The inventory of state-owned and leased facilities by state agencies represents a significant financial investment by the citizens of Washington state. As a result, RCW 43.82.150 requires an annual inventory of state-owned and leased facilities. This report is referred to as the annual facilities inventory.
