Division of Central Services

Welcome to the Division of Central Services (DCS), created in 1976 by State Statute, Part II; 24-30-1101. Central Services exists to provide centralized business support services at competitive pricing to state agencies. In order to maximize volume-based savings, all state agencies, except institutions of higher education as allowed under HB 04-1009, are required to participate. Central Services provides customers with a product or service tailored to their specific needs, at a price they can afford, and at a level of quality for which they can be proud. Through a consolidated, volume-based approach, Central Services helps participating state agencies to:

  • COMBINE STATE VOLUMES to improve purchasing leverage, reduce prices, and streamline the ordering, delivery, and payment processes;

  • ELIMINATE REDUNDANCY by creating one contract and solicitation process, providing one shop which minimizes facility costs, improve labor efficiency, reduce and share management and administration costs, and reduce the need to invest in duplicative equipment and infrastructure;

  • IMPROVE PROFESSIONALISM AND QUALITY with dedicated functional expertise, improved information and systems, and consistent processes and methods translates to increased technical expertise and higher quality service; and

  • REDUCE UNIT COSTS by maximizing equipment use, diluting fixed and overhead costs, and extending large volume pricing to small agencies.

"DCS will provide the best value to the State in every service we offer and to every customer we serve."
