About the Office of General Services:
The New York State Office of General Services (OGS) provides essential services to our state and local partners, as well as the general public. From operating buildings, to construction management, establishing procurement contracts, and conducting tours of the Capitol, OGS is truly a diverse organization.

While our services may be “general,” many state agencies depend on OGS to fulfill their own mission and goals. As such, OGS must always seek to innovate and streamline its business processes, find new ways to serve our customers, and build public trust. In response to Governor Cuomo’s mandate to achieve savings for the state while improving organizational efficiency, OGS is poised to take on the challenge of creating a modernized government that does more with less. OGS will accomplish this by retooling our focus on critical programs and services; redesigning the way we do business; and retraining our workforce to support a realigned agency.

Some positions may require additional credentials or a background check to verify your identity.
