Vision: Our Vision is to become a trusted advisor, not just a service provider, and turn customers into clients.

The Department of General Services (DGS) is primarily an internal service department within the County of San Diego. The DGS ensures that other County departments have the necessary workspaces, services and vehicles to accomplish their own business objectives. These services range from real estate leasing and acquisition support to capital improvement and architectural planning; from facility maintenance and repair services to security management; from vehicle acquisition and maintenance to refueling services.
