ABOUT THE DATA - STATE LANDS
The Louisiana State Land And Building System ( SLABS ) inventory is maintained by the Division of Administration pursuant to LA R. S. 39:11 and 13.
The inventory maintains data relative to the fixed immovable property in which the State of Louisiana has a surface interest (SLABS is not a mineral interest inventory). The Louisiana State Land Office is responsible for maintaining this centralized inventory in as current and comprehensive a manner as is practicable. The inventory is comprised of electronic data files maintained upon a D.O.A. secure restricted-access computer server with hardcopy facility and building reports and conveyance documents filed in the State Land Office.
The files are separated into three main categories: Facility/Site Summary data identified by the facility's SITE CODE Number; Individual Building data identified by the building's State I. D. Number; and Individual Conveyance data identified by the document's Site Code Number and Document Number. The individual building and conveyance data is linked to the facility/site data for that particular facility by the facility's Site Code Number. The electronic data files contain more detailed information for these three categories.
You can review the SLABS data at another web-based application. Once you know your facility SITE CODE NUMBER, you can go to the Division of Administration, Office of Facility Planning and Control's "Web-Enabled Facility Management Program" web page at www.gcr1.com/fpc.
It should be noted that the SLABS inventory does not contain data relative to tax adjudicated lands, State-owned water bottoms, some State-owned dried lake beds, State highway/road rights-of-way, major infrastructure such as roads, bridges, dams, etc., Section 16 School Land, levee board properties, the properties of some State boards and commissions, and any lands in which the State retains only a mineral interest.
