DAS was created by the Forty-fourth Legislature in March 1981 with passage of the Administrative Services Act (Chapter 257, Laws of Utah 1981). The legislation consolidated the Department of Finance, the Department of Systems Planning and Computing, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Building Board in response to an organizational study of state administrative services by the Governor's Committee on Executive Reorganization.
