19 newly acquired or leased facilities with other state agencies.
20 Each state agency shall provide a copy of its facilities needs plan report

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
STATE BUILDINGS MANAGEMENT REFORM - This is the first in
a package of six bills needed to improve cost-control and
efficiency over management of state building facilities.
Specifically, this legislation will, for the first time,
require agencies to plan their building facility needs on
a long-term basis.
This legislation accomplishes the following:
Agencies will be required to prepare a 5-year facilities
needs plan (updated annually) and report their projected
facilities needs to JFAC at their annual budget hearings.
Eliminates surprises about agencies needing more floor
Provides tighter control over building space utilization.
Agencies are to evaluate their building facilities for
unused, under used and available space utilizing guidelines
promulgated by the Department of Administration. The
objective is to insure that, where practicable, all available
building space is identified and utilized to the maximum
extent possible before additional building space is built
No negative fiscal impact. Should produce significant cost
savings over time.
