Our Ministry of Magic?  Delve Into Pennsylvania DGS!


Elizabeth O’Reilly, Deputy Secretary, Department of General Services

Bonnie Sowers, RA, Director, Capital Project Planning and Procurement

Does the Pennsylvania Department of General Services (PA DGS) seem like a “Ministry of Magic?”  This presentation aims to diminish the mysteries of this “wizarding world” of bureaucracy by examining several current DGS design and construction projects to illuminate the Commonwealth’s capital projects process and priorities and to understand how our tax dollars are being put to work.

Learning Objectives: Attendees to this presentation will be able to:

  • Discuss project delivery methods used by the PA DGS.
  • Identify the minimum sustainability objectives required for PA DGS projects.
  • Understand the condition of various Commonwealth facilities under DGS jurisdiction, including their state of accessibility and Code compliance.
  • Appreciate the public benefits of selective PA DGS pubic improvement projects.
 This program is a continuing education course that has been submitted to AIA CES for 1.0 LU.  Continuing education certificates will be available for all attendees requesting them.

Our dinner meeting will be held at the
