Who We Are

The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM), an agency within the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F,) is responsible for facilities management, major public building construction, and real estate services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The agency was created by the legislature in 1980 to promote quality and integrity in the management and construction of the Commonwealth’s capital facilities and real estate assets. 

DCAMM directly manages 5.5 million square feet of state buildings, and for those buildings not managed by DCAMM, we assist our client agencies using comprehensive and cost-effective maintenance and management strategies and standards. Our agency also manages hundreds of millions in capital construction projects each year, and more than 500 active leases comprising 7 million square feet of privately-owned lease space housing state offices. Further, our agency is also responsible for the disposition of surplus real estate owned by the Commonwealth.
