Martha Goldsmith, Director
The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) Office of Leasing and State Office Planning (OLSOP), is responsible for meeting office and related space needs of state agencies. More specifically, the office is responsible for 1) the state's leasing activity when the Commonwealth is the tenant, 2) management of three multi-tenant state office buildings, and 3) planning and reconfiguration assistance to agencies to meet their changing office needs. OLSOP manages over 500 leases covering about 8 million square fee of leased space.
DCAMM, on behalf of the Commonwealth, leases more than 7 million square feet of space from private and public landlords. Leasing services include acquisition of new leases and management of active leases. OLSOP procures new leases through open and competitive solicitation of proposals to meet an agency's needs and provides the real estate services to evaluate potential sites, negotiate the lease and any amendments, assist in the design of tenant improvements, and assist agencies to insure that the landlord meets its obligations under the lease.
The Manual for Leasing and State Office Planning was developed to present and explain DCAMM's simplified leasing procedures and to be a practical guide and reference for agency facilities staff and attorneys. The Manual describes the role and responsibilities of DCAMM and the agency in acquiring and managing leased space; provides guidance for facilities planning and space planning; and explains procedures and use of standard forms and documents necessary for planning, solicitation of lease proposals, and completing and executing a lease.
