State Commission approves $269 million in construction contracts

April 23, 2009 (COLUMBUS) The Ohio School Facilities Commission at its meeting today approved more than $269 million in school construction and renovation work in 28 school districts. “This record level of activity was made possible by the $4.1 billion in tobacco securitization funds,” said the agency’s Executive Director Mike Shoemaker.

Shoemaker stated, “These contracts are another example of the positive impact of Ohio’s school construction program - not only on the delivery of a 21st Century education, but also in providing good jobs in a difficult economy. Today’s Commission action will support an estimated 2,100 job opportunities.“

Since its inception in 1997, the Commission has disbursed over $7 billion for school construction and renovation, resulting in the occupancy of 671 buildings serving an estimated 365,000 children.

Construction trade contracts are approved by the Commission after the competitively bid contracts are awarded by the local board of education.

On September 10, 2012, the Commission was consolidated with the Office of the State Architect to form the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission. The Ohio School Facilities Commission continues to exist as a separate commission within the new agency, focusing on funding Ohio’s comprehensive K-12 school construction program.
