The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) is responsible for facilities planning, project delivery, property management, and real estate services for the Commonwealth. We are stewards of the Commonwealth’s assets. We care for the people of our state and the future of our planet.

Our job is to work with state agencies to create and manage forward-thinking, sustainable buildings to meet the needs of the citizens they serve. We are partners with fellow agencies to help them meet their strategic needs with fiscally responsible building and real estate solutions. We support the growth of the Commonwealth’s economy and actively engage with private sector partners to make it easier to do business with the Commonwealth.  

Legislative Background

Chapter 579 of 1980 amended the Massachusetts General Laws to create a professional building design and construction agency, Division of Capital Planning and Operations, and an independent Designer Selection Board (DSB) for the selection of design consultants. Chapter 127 of 1999 changed the name of the agency to the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance. Chapter 159 of 2000 amended the General Laws to eliminate the two-step design process.
