Welcome to the Department of
To give you a little background about us, DAS was established in 1977 as the single agency in charge of providing administrative services to other state agencies. DAS’s services enable the state to save money by taking advantage of economies of scale and streamlining services and processes. DAS has statutory authority in the areas of personnel recruitment, workforce planning; fleet operations; state workers’ compensation administration; procurement of goods and services; collection of monies due the state; surplus property distribution; contractor prequalification and supplier diversity; federal food distribution; consolidated human resources, payroll, fiscal and equal employment opportunity services for several smaller state agencies; printing, mail and courier services for state government; information technology services; the state building and fire codes; school construction financing; design and construction of state facilities; and state facilities leasing and management.
In addition, the Office of the Claims Commissioner, the State Marshal Commission, the State Property Review Board, and the Insurance and Risk Management Board were consolidated into DAS, but retain independent decision-making authority.
On July 1, 2011, DAS consolidated the Department of Information Technology and part of the Department of Public Works into one agency which will provide better customer service and cost-saving measures to the citizens of Connecticut.
On July 1, 2013, the Department of Construction Services was consolidated into the Department of Administrative Services in an effort to streamline state government and provide efficiencies in government administration.
The services we provide cross state agencies, municipalities, vendors, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations and the public at large. There is something here for everybody.
In addition to redesigning our website, we have expanded our web-based services to allow users to be able to register to receive state examination and job “e-alerts”, register to receive email notices of business opportunities with the state, and even to receive notices on upcoming vehicle and surplus property auctions.
DAS is committed to open, transparent government 24/7, and we are always striving to make our services more user-friendly and online-accessible.
Thank you for visiting, and please stop by often.
