General Services, Office ofskip breadcrumbs
Agency Web Site: https://ogs.ny.gov/
The mission of the Office of General Services (OGS) is to manage and lease real property, design and build facilities, contract for goods, services and technology, and deliver a wide array of support services for agencies. The agency seeks to provide citizens, government, and nonprofit agencies with innovative solutions, integrated service and best value, in support of cost-effective operations and responsible public stewardship.
In the coming year, OGS will continue to play a primary role in the centralization of services that are common across State agencies and programs. The agency is already delivering savings through a series of new procurements of common goods and services. In addition, OGS is leading an effort to eliminate unneeded office space and is expanding its current role in supporting other state agencies with finance, human resources and real estate operations.
The Executive Budget recommends $1.104 billion for the Office of General Services ($145 million General Fund; $869 million Other Funds; and $90 million Capital Funds) reflecting an All Funds decrease of $20.6 million from the 2013-14 Budget. The decrease is primarily the result of the completion of contracts related to Enterprise Services initiatives, which have generated and will continue to generate savings for the State. The $7 million decrease in Capital appropriations will have no negative impact on the agency's proposed 5-year capital plan, due to the availability of significant capital reappropriations.
The increase in the Special Revenue Funds-Other is primarily attributable to the realignment of $6.0 million from Fiduciary Funds and the addition of $600,000 to facilitate non-State-funded special events hosted by OGS statewide, where event costs are expected to be fully offset by donations and event vendor fees.
The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 1,561 FTEs. The increase of 8 FTEs from the 2013-14 level is needed to staff both the ongoing operational management and maintenance needs of the new Agriculture and Markets Food Lab and to staff the Warehouse Stockpile Initiative.
