Commerce and Compliance Division | ODOT | January 18, 2023
We are moving our Salem office! Tomorrow, January 19, our offices and phone lines will close at 5 pm and that will be the last time we conduct business at 3930. On Monday, January 23, we will reopen at our new location on Airport Road. On that day, our new address will be: Commerce and Compliance Division Oregon Department of Transportation
455 Airport Road SE, Building A Salem, OR 97301
Make sure your mail is addressed properly starting January 23, 2023! At our new location, you will find directional signs to help you find our new home in Building A, along with where to find truck parking for standard tractors and 53’ trailers. Why the big move? Prior to the pandemic, we took part in an agency-wide effort to identify areas where business lines could be streamlined, and money could be saved. One area where we knew we could cut costs at CCD was the rent for our offices. Visit CCD OnlineContact CCDTrucking Online Login
Motor Carrier News Online As the pandemic emerged and we shifted some staff to remote work, our office space was suddenly underutilized. Ours was one of several office spaces seeking to end rental leases and move our people into ODOT-owned buildings. To date, including CCD, the agency has successfully eliminated 6 leases and is working on two more. ODOT’s budget includes the cost of operating all our own buildings, so what we pay in lease payments are additional expenditures. When we end a lease and move into an owned building, eliminating the lease payment is true savings. With forecasted budget shortages, this is a significant saving that we are very excited about. What are we saving? Since we are moving mid-biennium, we took the rent money budgeted for the rest of the current biennium and applied that to the cost of the move. Thus, moving costs are being paid out of the savings from eliminating this biennium’s rent cost, meaning next biennium we will realize the full rent savings. The total unused budget for future rent is $950,000. The move portion of the project costs approximately $240,000. Due to the buildings at our East Salem Complex being older with insufficient IT equipment to support our service needs, we chose to upgrade all IT systems in both buildings ahead of our move. We anticipate these upgrades to provide approximately 25 years of fast and efficient network capability. We also made structural upgrades, including the creation of a customer service lobby. The total construction and IT costs were roughly $900,000. Therefore, the savings in rent covered all move costs and most of the construction and IT upgrades. Our customers will have an excellent building at their service when they conduct business with us, and next biennium we will see a true savings of $2.8M!
