The Ohio Department of Administrative Services develops and promulgates statewide administrative policies established by the Director concerning the stewardship of public assets, facilities, motor vehicles, printing, mail, records, and purchasing. These policies serve to protect the public interest in a consistent manner across state agencies.
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.
The State Administrative Policy webpage contains all administrative policies issued by the Department.
