Real Property Warrant Program Handbook

The Real Property Warrant Program (RPWP) was established to ensure that all Department real property leasing activities are conducted by fully qualified individuals. The program requires that all actions taken to execute, administer, modify and terminate real property leases for DOC must be performed by warranted real property official. The directive link below will establish DOC policy and procedures for the issuance and use of real property leasing warrant. The directive that is linked below, ensures that all real property leases are executed by individuals having appropriate authority, experience and training needed for the acquisition process. Currently, the RPWP is being revised and the 2002 version will serve as guidance until the revision is completed.
