The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), formed in September 2012, consolidated the operations of the former State Architect’s Office and the Ohio School Facilities Commission. OFCC is responsible for guiding capital projects for state agencies, state-supported universities and community colleges, including Ohio’s comprehensive public K-12 school construction and renovation program. The Commission is currently working with, or has completed all necessary work in, nearly two-thirds of the state’s 613 school districts and has opened over 1,000 new or renovated facilities.
The Ohio School Facilities Commission continues to exist within the new consolidated agency and is focused on programmatic issues related to funding K-12 construction projects. The authority to approve, award and administer design, construction and other specialty contracts now falls under the umbrella of the new Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.
