Site acquisition is the purchase of property for County use and disposition is the sale or lease of surplus property. The space management function provides for the efficient and aesthetic utilization of space in County-owned and leased facilities. The site evaluation function provides technical support to site evaluation committees for Capital Improvements Program (CIP) projects.
