The Commonwealth through its Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM), in collaboration with select state agencies, has launched a business opportunity initiative, titled Open for Business, as part of a state-wide effort to maximize the full potential of Commonwealth real estate assets for the benefit of its cities and towns. The main areas of focus include real estate, economic development, utilities and telecommunications, green partnerships, advertising, retail and concessions.
- The Massachusetts Asset Management System (MAssets) in affiliation with the DCAMM Capital Asset Management Information System (CAMIS) records, maps and reports on the acquisitions, dispositions and land transactions of all Commonwealth owned and leased Real Property. As of the publication of this report the Commonwealth owns over 14,395 land parcels in nearly all of the 351 cities and towns across the Commonwealth. This totals over 716,167 acres of land and over 84 million gross square feet of building and other improvement space.
- With the exclusion of land and buildings, departments must periodically assess their inventories of equipment, supplies, and materials. Surplus property includes, but is not limited to, office equipment and furniture, clothing, vehicles, and building materials that exceed departmental need.
- Information about the State's Surplus Property Program (SSP) as well as details about how to declare and obtain surplus property.
