The duties and responsibilities of the Bureau of Building, Grounds and Real Property Management (BOB) are defined within the law found in Mississippi Code 1972, Annotated, Sections 31-11-1 through 31-11-31. The Bureau is not a regulatory agency of the State, but a service arm assisting State Institutions / Agencies and Departments with construction projects. While the primary function of BOB is to properly administer funds appropriated to it by the legislature, the Bureau also has the power to acquire, hold, and dispose of personal property for the State of Mississippi.
Some of the duties of BOB include working with professionals, approving plans for buildings and renovations, serving as a liaison with federal building programs, inspecting incarceration facilities, working with the Legislative Budget Office to provide information on needed repairs and renovations, and managing leases for the State of Mississippi.
