Assessor's Office Transitions to Digital Files

On October 17, 2017, the County Board of Supervisors approved the Assessor Records Transition Project, a joint effort by the Assessor and Information Technology departments. One year later, on October 17, 2018, the Assessor completed the digitization of all property files located in the San Luis Obispo office.


On October 17, 2017, the County Board of Supervisors approved the OpenText Upgrade and Assessor Records Transition Project, a joint effort by the Assessor and Information Technology departments to digitize more than 168,000 property files.

One year later, on October 17, 2018, the Assessor completed the digitization of all property files located in the San Luis Obispo office. The weight reduction on the third floor of the New Government Center is estimated to be just shy of 36.5 tons (about 73,000 pounds). The area once occupied by the property files and their shelving units has been repurposed into two scanning stations and three work pods.

Shipping and scanning has now begun on property files in the Assessor’s North County office, with an expected completion date in the spring of 2019.  Extensive reengineering of all office processes will continue for the next 18 to 24 months.
