The Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) has the most diverse set of responsibilities of any City department. FAS combines the functions from the former Fleets and Facilities Department and the former Department of Executive Administration with the revenue forecasting, debt management and tax policy functions that were previously performed by the former Department of Finance. It also transfers the Department of Neighborhood's Customer Service Bureau to the newly created "Office of Constituent Services," which is housed within FAS. As a result, the department provides a variety of services to City departments and the public, including citywide operational responsibilities for accounting, payroll, licensing, revenue collection and processing, animal services, weights and measures, treasury activities, purchasing, construction and consultant contracting, risk management, the City's financial management and personnel data systems, and management of City real estate, buildings and vehicles, as well as construction and renovation of fire stations as part of the Fire Facilities and Emergency Response Levy Program.
The City of Seattle has three types of purchasing and contracting: Purchasing (goods and routine services), Construction and Public Works, Consultant Contracting. The City Purchasing & Contracting Services Division (PCSD) is centralized within the Department of Finance and Administrative Services, for goods, products, materials, supplies and routine services. PCSD administers the bid, award, execution and close-out of public works projects for City departments. PCSD also maintains the City guidelines and procedures for consultant contracting.
