Real Property Management In California: Moving Beyond The Role Of Caretaker

Report #105, October 1990


California is failing to manage its property effectively because of inadequate procedures and organizational structures, resulting in a failure to maximize real property assets.

This report contains four findings and 17 recommendations, including that the current Public Works Board should be recast to make it the central administrative structure for the State’s real property management. In addition, the Commission recommends that the Board’s responsibilities include long-range planning, appraisal, acquisition, financing, disposal of property and joint development with public or private agencies.
