The Ohio Facilities Construction 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, and managing the grants process for cultural facilities and school security programs.
The Commission merged the operations of the State Architect's Office and the Ohio School Facilities Commission on September 10, 2012, combining the state's construction authority and resources within a single entity. The new Commission sets uniform rules, procedures, and standardized documents and is responsible for construction delivery methods, construction documents, and process and procedures.
The Ohio School Facilities Commission continues to exist within the new consolidated agency and focuses on programmatic and planning issues related to K-12 construction. The authority to approve, award, and administer design, construction, and other specialty contracts now falls under the umbrella of the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.
