Jim Yoder Chosen to Head Office of Space Management

July 23, 2008

MONTGOMERY – Jim Yoder has been named State Building and Space Management Officer. State Finance Director Jim Main officially appointed Yoder to the position Monday, July 21.


Yoder worked in the general contracting industry for more than twenty years before joining the Department of Finance’s Office of Special Projects in 1992.


While in service to the state of Alabama, Yoder has overseen a number of projects, including the renovation of the Lurleen B. Wallace Office Building and construction of the West Wing of the Archives and History Building.


Yoder was named Acting State Building and Space Management Officer in October 2006. Since that time, he managed the design and development of Lease Track. Lease Track is a database that manages, tracks and reports all state government leases. Yoder then initiated and managed the development of Lease Search, a web-based application that provides public access to current data in Lease Track. Lease Search was a finalist for the 2008 Council of State Governments’ Innovations Award for the Southern Region.


An Alabama native, Yoder holds a degree in Building Science from Auburn University.


The Department of Finance Office of Space Management reviews all leases to insure they meet state requirements. All leases of private property must be approved by the Governor or the Finance Director, and by the Office of Space Management. The Office of Space Management is also directly involved in state building and renovation efforts.
