The State of Oklahoma's Property Is Your Property

A look at the 2018 Oklahoma Real Property Asset Report

About the report

Since the enactment of the Oklahoma State Government Asset Reduction and Cost Savings Program in 2011, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services has published an annual report of all property owned or leased by the state. The 2018 Oklahoma Real Property Asset Report is the seventh publication of this statutorily required report. All agencies, boards, commissions and public trusts with the state as a beneficiary are surveyed annually to capture changes, corrections and additional data on all of the property owned or leased by the State of Oklahoma.

Additionally, OMES analyzes the data to provide an informative, at-a-glance summary of the data submitted by the agencies. Real property is divided into the categories of owned and leased and then further subdivided by agency and location to calculate the square footages and acreages of the properties. Properties are also divided by predominant use to present a clearer view of the function of the properties owned and leased by the state.
