Historical NoteReturn to Top

The General Services Department was established in 1971 with responsibility for management, planning, and coordination of necessary services common to City Departments. These included management and maintenance of the City’s vehicle fleet, coordination and planning of the City’s communications system, provision of support services such as printing, duplicating, and warehousing, and provision of data processing services.

Before 1971, General Services was located within the Executive Department. In 1980, the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) was formed by merging functions of the General Services Department, Building Department, Division of Motor Transportation and the Office of Management and Budget. DAS was abolished in 1997 when its functions were assumed by the Executive Services Department.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

There are five annual reports for General Services dating from 1970 to 1979. They include brief narratives of each of the divisions and summary statistical information. These reports provide an overview of the data processing services of the City. The DAS Annual Reports, especially those in the early 1980s, are very brief. The 1985 report provides some detail about the City’s computer and communications systems.

Records were originally filed with the City Clerk in the Comptroller/Clerk's Files (CFs) and were removed to create this record series.
