About Internal Services

The Internal Services Department (ISD) provides a wide range of internal support services for the ongoing operation of County government. The Department focuses on promoting operational best practices and efficient government operations.

As part of the General Government strategic area, ISD supports governmental operations by providing procurement services, facility management, design and construction management, fleet management, risk management, surplus property disposition services, capital inventory management, and small business program management and services. Additionally, ISD is engaged in real estate development and management, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, elevator regulation, and parking services.

The Department's customers and stakeholders include County departments and employees, vendors and contractors, municipalities, not-for-profit organizations, Commission on Disability Issues (CODI), and Miami-Dade County residents and visitors.

Some of the long-term benefits of this departmental structure include:

  • More focus on countywide construction management with the intent that over time other such functions within the County can be consolidated;
  • The possible consolidation of the Inventory Management and Procurement functions for better materials management and,
  • Opportunities for review of a truly centralized fleet management model.
