Consistent with DGS's Core Values, we facilitate and protect the state's business interests through timely and cost effective legal services.

The DGS Office of Legal Services (OLS) provides leadership and guidance to state departments and agencies and internal divisions and offices on the state’s contracting and procurement laws and policies. This includes establishing the state’s services contracting standards; providing contract pre-review and approval; and procurement training.

In addition, OLS serves as in-house counsel providing legal advice on the state’s leveraged procurements of goods and services; real estate leasing, acquisition, and construction; Public Records Act requests; human resources; labor relations; regulatory adoption; and litigation support. OLS also exercises the services contract review and approval function for DGS.
