§

EO29-44. (No. 03-10) [Inter-Agency Tenant Committee for State-Owned Space

WHEREAS, the

State of Vermont currently owns and operates nearly four million square feet of

space; and

WHEREAS, Section

269 of No. 152 Acts of 2000 authorized the creation of a Facilities Operations

Revolving fund to appropriately reflect total space costs within State agency

budgets, allocating the expenses by means of a rental charge to tenant State

agencies (a "fee-for-space"); and

WHEREAS, the

fee-for-space rates include maintenance and custodial services provided by the

Department of Buildings and General Services to tenant agencies; and

WHEREAS, tenant

State agencies seek a voice in the operation of their respective buildings,

including staffing and scheduled repairs and maintenance, as well as a vehicle

to find and implement efficiencies in such operations; and

WHEREAS, an

on-going and collaborative effort with Department of Buildings and General

Services and tenant agencies can result in space cost savings for tenant

agencies;

NOW THEREFORE,

I, James H. Douglas, by virtue of the power vested in me as Governor, do hereby

establish an Inter-Agency Tenant Committee for State-Owned Space (hereinafter

the Tenant Committee).

Buildings and General Services.

or at the call of the Chair. The Committee shall have the following functions

and duties:

1. To engage

tenant State agencies directly in the operational and financial management of

their respective buildings and oversight of the Facilities Operations Revolving

Fund.

2. To advise the

Department of Buildings and General Services on the operation of state-owned

buildings, including staffing and scheduled repairs and maintenance, in order

to improve operations, save money and more fully meet the needs of tenant State

agencies.

3. To review

annually, and make recommendations to the Commissioner on appropriate

levels-of-service provided and fee-for-space rates charged to tenant State

agencies.
