Budget Overview

The total recommended FY22 Operating Budget for the Department of General Services is $41,246,435, an increase of $1,225,995 or 3.06 percent from the FY21 Approved Budget of $40,020,440. Personnel Costs comprise 43.37 percent of the budget for 234 full-time position(s) and one part-time position(s), and a total of 169.30 FTEs. Total FTEs may include seasonal or temporary positions and may also reflect workforce charged to or from other departments or funds. Operating Expenses account for the remaining 56.63 percent of the FY22 budget.

As part of the County's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of General Services was tasked with managing the procurement and distribution of masks and other protective equipment, enhanced cleaning and sanitation services, and other supplies and services necessary to address the public health emergency. Increased operating expenditures related to these activities in FY20 and FY21 are reflected in the Budget Summary section of this publication.

In addition, this department's Capital Improvements Program (CIP) requires Current Revenue funding.

County Priority Outcomes

While this program area supports all eight of the County Result Areas, the following are emphasized:

  • A Greener County
  • Effective, Sustainable Government
  • A Growing Economy

Initiatives

  • Expand the County's solar energy infrastructure to improve energy resiliency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Solar energy projects initiated by the DGS Office of Energy and Sustainability (OES) include the Scotland Resiliency Hub, Brookville Bus Depot Microgrid, and Oaks Landfill solar development.
  • Implement energy efficiency initiatives at County facilities, including lighting upgrades at ten facilities and building automation upgrades at six facilities.

  • Initiate sustainability projects at the County Executive Office Building (EOB), including an efficiency concept study and a monitoring-based commissioning pilot, to achieve energy reduction and determine a path for a more efficient, sustainable, and productive space.
  • Complete inventory of major County capital assets.


  • Implementation of new Work Order Management System, integrated with a new Asset Management System and Decision Support System.
  • Continued innovation and implementation of Green initiatives throughout the County's inventory of facilities.
  • The DGS Office of Real Estate will continue to manage use of leased space to optimize the County's leasing footprint, increase utilization rates, and consolidate and terminate leased spaces to minimize costs and respond to evolving telecommuting trends.

Innovations and Productivity Improvements

  • The Department of General Services contributed to the County's response to the COVID pandemic emergency by stocking, staffing, and maintaining a new COVID supply warehouse. DGS established an inventory management system and procedures to ensure seamless delivery of, and accountability for, hundreds of thousands of safety items to County operations, employees, child care service providers, and healthcare providers.

  • To ensure a safer environment for staff and the public at County facilities during the COVID pandemic emergency, the DGS Division of Facilities Management established new COVID-related cleaning protocols and responded to COVID incidents. This effort also included implementation of new and enhanced air filtration and air circulations standards for existing County locations.


  • The DGS Office of Planning and Development (OPD) secured $103 million in private investment in FY20, and a cumulative investment of $327 million since FY14, through its public-private partnerships. OPD successfully negotiated for the redevelopment of the former Department of Recreation headquarters to include 196 for-sale homes and rental apartments for very low and low income households.


  • Effectively relocated all homeless residents of Gude Drive shelter to Taft Court, on an emergency basis, which included major renovation of the new location.
  • DGS Central Duplicating Services digitized employee medical records in preparation for the planned physical office move of the Office of Occupational Medical Services. Digitizing employee active records, microfilm/microfiche and x-rays reduced the need for storage space in the new location, allowed for shared accessibility of records with doctors and staff, provided for a more secure solution for maintaining confidentiality, and supported disaster recovery.
