The management of government employee housing is to be centralised within the Department of Housing and Public Works as part of a commitment to effective and consistent management of the portfolio.
From 1 January 2014, responsibilities for maintenance and improvements to employee housing will transfer from a range of agencies to the Department of Housing and Public Works. From 1 July 2014, the ownership of all employee residences that can be made available for general accommodation will also transfer to the department.
Through its core function of overseeing and maintaining a range of government built assets, the department will ensure that investment in existing employee housing is allocated where it is needed most and that housing is maintained to an agreed standard.
