Answer: Go to solicitations for DAS currently advertised space requirements.
If I respond to a RFP (request for proposals), is my submission considered a bid?
Answer: No, the Leasing and Property Transfer does not solicit bids, but rather a request for proposals.
- Is there a form I have to complete in order to submit a proposal?
Do I have to submit a proposal by the RFP (request for proposals) deadline to be considered?
Answer: After the deadline has passed, DAS can still consider proposals, however, submitting your proposal by the deadline ensures your property is considered prior to any decisions on a requirement is taken. Go to under evaluation for a list of space requirements that have not yet resulted in an approved lease agreement.
How can I tell when there is an approved lease agreement for a particular space requirement?
Answer: Go to results to see RFP’s that have resulted in signed lease agreements. A copy of the lease agreement can be viewed there.
Does DAS require the use of a particular lease form for its leases?
Answer: Yes, State leases require specific language per statute and therefore DAS uses a State Approved Form Lease Agreement approved by DAS, the Office of Policy and Management, the State Properties Review Board and the Attorney General’s Office.
Are there specific forms I will be required to sign in addition to the lease?
Answer: Yes, the following are required:
OPM Form 1 Gift and Campaign Contribution Certification
OPM Form 7 Iran Certification
How is square footage defined in State leases?
Answer: DAS uses a net usable square feet calculation to determine square footage for leased space. Net usable square feet is defined as:
The interior floor area of a building, used for office and other purposes, within the area leased by a tenant which is for its exclusive use: any space shared in common with other tenants, such as, entrance and elevator lobbies; hallways, bathrooms, or used by management for other tenants, such as janitorial or electronic/mechanical closets, is not part of net usable area: if these areas are for the sole use of a tenant, they may be counted in that tenant’s net usable area. The measurement includes structural elements of the building found in the tenant’s space, such as columns and projections necessary to the building but excludes vertical space penetrations of the building such as elevators, stairwells, air shafts and stacks. Measurement of net usable space is to the dominant (over 50%) inside face, such as window glass of the exterior wall; to the midpoint of a wall separating a tenant from an adjacent tenant; and to the inside face of a common corridor, elevator shaft, stairway or similar space.
