Government Property Group
Best Practice in Built Asset Management
 
The Government Property Group (GPG) is a voluntary committee of State and Territory Government departments that work within the built asset management area. With a strong governance structure supported by monthly meetings that culminate in an Annual Meeting, the relationships established between GPG jurisdictions are providing leadership in government office accommodation facility management and development.
 
The GPG has continued to evolve as a collaborative committee that leverages the skills, knowledge, and expertise of individual GPG jurisdictions. Supporting a strong vision statement encompassing the purpose, values and key capabilities, jurisdictional collaboration on projects of national importance. The GPG governance aims to create smarter approaches to asset management across all GPG jurisdictions, with a focus on sustainable outcomes, consistent policies and frameworks, and effective stakeholder engagement.
 
The GPG has talented people at all levels and a solid balance sheet that gives us the flexibility to pursue and progress current and future projects that will drive efficiencies in portfolio management across the jurisdictions.
 

The role of GPG and Contribution to Industry

 
Government organisations are significant users of office space across all Australian markets, and are well placed to improve the performance of commercial buildings by adopting ecologically sustainable practices.  Governments are well placed to lead the promotion and adoption of sustainable office building practices, thereby influencing the sustainability practices of the wider commercial property market.
Leadership by governments can provide an incentive for business to adopt innovative and sustainable practices which benefit the wider community. The GPG encourages wider adoption of sustainable procurement and management of office buildings through partnerships between governments, organisations, industry and the not-for-profit sector.
The GPG through the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) reports to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), which elevates the work of the GPG to be recognised on Commonwealth agendas as well as the state and territory agendas.  The GPG is working to make buildings more sustainable through a number of projects with two major projects being implemented: 
  1. The National Green Leasing Policy (NGLP), both of which were initiated in 2010 across all GPG jurisdictions.

 


 

  • Enhanced Management and Performance of Government Assets
  • Property Management Capacity Development
  • Procurement as a Strategic Function
  • Smarter Property Management Solutions
  • Effective Stakeholder Engagement 
  • Emerging Challenges and Opportunities
