Government office accommodation

The way government office accommodation is organised, coordinated and connected is being refocused.

Government office accommodation

The way government office accommodation is organised, coordinated and connected is being refocused.

Property mandate changes and revised expectations are driving a forward looking approach to the way we plan for and organise government office space now, and into the future.

A more organised and coordinated focus, under a new programme called the Government Office Accommodation Programme, will support a drive to regional growth, the changing nature of workplaces, and provide a standardised approach to fit out and design.

A portfolio approach to government office accommodation will focus on the delivery of the government's expectations, including supporting government office accommodation to become more agile, responsive, and resilient.

The Government Property Group supports managing government office accommodation needs through leadership and a more directive approach to meeting the government's expectations for property.

Property Functional Lead

Carolyn Tremain is the Property Functional Leader for government office accommodation and she is also the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

The Property Functional Leader is supported by a Chief Executives group in setting the strategic direction. A programme steering group will direct activity on the Government Office Accommodation Programme, and provide oversight of property projects to meet the expectations.

The programme will aim to deliver the government expectations for government office accommodation, in partnership with government agencies.

The Government Property Group is developing the Government Office Accommodation Programme.

The programme aligns with the property mandate, that was changed in 2018. More information about the mandate and expectations for government property can be found in the cabinet paper:

Expectations for the future of government office accommodation

The expectations for the future of government office accommodation are:

A citizen/community focus

  • Government office accommodation focused on the delivery of services to citizens in metro and regional areas. Aiming to provide simplified and streamlined access for people to interact with government agencies.
  • Where possible, accommodation integration with local and regional agencies, in order to support regional growth initiatives and provide resilience.

More collaboration between agencies

  • Public sector agencies working together better through co-location and joined up services. Agencies co-located based on functional and sector alignment.
  • A fit-out and design style that provides consistency across all government agencies. New Zealand Government branded offices, with agency specific branding as appropriate to maintain cultural identity.

Providing workplaces that value people

  • Contemporary workplaces that are safe, secure and that support a modern mobile workforce. Designed to integrate technology and modern management practices, and become great places to work.
  • Building fit out and design measured for sustainability and energy efficiency.
  • Physical security and safety needs considered.

Value for money

  • Continue the drive for efficiency through reduction in space requirements, and through standardised fit-out, with a long term focus on reducing ongoing operating costs.
  • Quality standards linked to the delivery of services to the citizens and communities.

Government Office Accommodation Programme

The Government Office Accommodation Programme will be a forward looking programme that will anticipate accommodation options and opportunities in advance.

We will be using existing property data and information to design and plan the implementation of the programme, and the individual property projects.

In particular, there is now a greater emphasis on close collaboration between agencies and Government Property Group. This includes early engagement to enable Government Property Group to explore market opportunities when considering future office accommodation requirements.
