(1) The Director of the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, as custodian of the capitol area and state office buildings, with the advice of the occupying agency, may make available on occasion or lease at such rates as the director considers to be in the public interest auditoriums, meeting rooms, courtyards, suitable rooftops and lobbies of state buildings to persons, firms or organizations engaged in commercial, cultural, educational or recreational activities that do not disrupt the operations of the building and of state government. Where rent is charged, the director shall set a rate consistent with the public interest. The director may impose terms and conditions on use that are consistent with the public interest.
(2) The director may enter into leases of space in state buildings with persons, firms and organizations engaged in commercial, cultural, educational or recreational activities for terms not to exceed five years.

Such leases may be negotiated without competitive bid, subject to rules adopted by the director, and shall contain terms and conditions necessary to protect the public interest.
