Review of the Decentralization of the Educational Facility Construction Review Process, Report No. 96-36, January 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • Decentralization reduced state costs by approximately $2.3 million and reduced the Office of Educational Facilities' workload.
  • The early effect of decentralization has been positive for some districts because it expedites the construction process. However, many districts are concerned that decentralization may increase district responsibilities and costs, and may result in inconsistent application of the Uniform Building Code. However, the significance of these potential problems will not be known for four to five years.
