The Ohio Department of Administrative Services develops and promulgates State Administrative Policies established by the Director to provide management direction and guide the use of resources on behalf of the public trust. The Ohio General Assembly charges the Department with state policy authority for matters related to assets, facilities, fleet, procurement, records management and printing, human resources and information technology.

State Administrative Policies affect a wide variety of agencies, so the Department strives to ensure that each policy is based on comprehensive research and evaluation. Prior to adoption, each policy undergoes a rigorous development process that typically involves the contributions of state agencies, subject matter experts, and legal counsel.

This site serves as the official online register of State Administrative Policy issued by the Department. Current versions are also provided to the State Library of Ohio for public reference. Previous versions are provided to the Ohio Historical Society.  Click here to view the State Administrative Policy Conversion Chart.
